Occupying something of a middle ground between high-feature compact luxury sedans and the "default" European choices like the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Acura RLX finds itself with a wide range of rivals.
The Volvo S90 is certainly the segment's style choice, both inside and out.
Close behind is the more polarizing Cadillac CTS, which delivers more performance at the upper range.
Then there are the mid-size luxury heavyweights: The Lexus GS, the Mercedes E Class, and the BMW 5.
You can't go wrong with any of those three, as each offers a wide range of options, engines, and features.
