The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura RLX is an understated luxury full-sizer that puts emphasis on unique technical solutions instead of all-out style and flair. Little has changed with the 2015 Lincoln MKS; it continues to offer understated and reserved luxury with an available high-power turbocharged engine option that spices things up somewhat, at least in a straight line.
