The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Acura RLX offers some minor updates to an already competent—if subtle—luxury package. It's an interesting alternative to the other cars in its class. The 2016 Hyundai Genesis Coupe appeals to a more limited group than it used to; but it straddles the line between budget sports car and refined touring coupe in all the right ways.
