It may not have the bulletproof branding of some competitors, but the RLX is not without charms. Its old beak grille has finally been replaced by a prettier pentagonal nose, and a sharp 10-speed automatic now pairs to the standard 310-hp V-6 engine. Our choice is the Sport Hybrid, which uses a 377-hp powertrain derived from the one used in the NSX and has Acura’s SH-AWD system to aid handling. We like driving the RLX, but the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto still stings.

Pros
Strong performance,
comfortable seats,
standard driver aids,
high value.

Cons
Invisible styling,
slow navigation system,
complex two-screen infotainment interface,
subpar paint quality.
