When it’s time to search for your next luxury sedan, you have quite a few options, but we think Morris County drivers will have a tough time matching the 2017 Acura RLX. You don’t have to take our word for it, though; we’ve put it side-by-side with the 2017 Audi A6 to give you an idea of how another luxury brand compares.


It might not be the top priority of all Morris County drivers, but we believe all luxury sedans should have something impressive under the hood. When we put the 2017 Acura RLX and the 2017 Audi A6 side by side, well, see for yourself:

  • 2017 Acura RLX: Under the hood of the standard Acura RLX with Technology Package is a 3.5L V6 with 310 hp, and drivers who opt for the RLX Sport Hybrid model will have a trio of electric motors raising the specs up to 377 hp.
  • 2017 Audi A6: Audi opts for a 2.0L four-cylinder with a turbocharger, and while that might give it a leg up on some cars, it translates to just 252 hp.

One of the things we love about the 2017 Acura RLX with Technology Package is that the tech features are a part of even the base model, giving it an edge over the Audi. Here’s a short look at some features you’ll find standard on the RLX – they either require an upgrade or are unavailable on the Audi:

  • Satellite-linked Navigation with Real Time Traffic
  • Hard Drive with 15GB of Storage
  • AcuraLink Telematics
  • Noise / Sound Cancellation
  • Jewel Eye LED Headlights

Features like these make it clear that Acura makes some of the most advanced cars on the market and believes those technologies should be standard on a luxury sedan like the RLX.

An auto warranty is something you never want to need but should always want to have. While both vehicles offer the same level of basic coverage – 48 months or 50,000 miles – Audi skimps on the powertrain coverage.

  • The Audi A6 only has 48 months or 50,000 miles of powertrain warranty coverage.
  • The Acura RLX has a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
