2019 Acura RLX vs. Its Competition

2019 Acura RLX

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class represents the class standard alongside the BMW 5 Series but carries a hefty premium over the RLX when features are added.

Volvo’s sultry S90 serves up more style than the Acura and just about anything else in the segment.

The Lexus GS and Infiniti Q70 are close competitors as the RLX’s Japanese contemporaries, and while the GS is redesigned, the Q70 holds over for another year.

Finally, the Audi A6 has just been redesigned as well, and packs a tech-heavy punch.
