2014 Acura RLX Wins AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award0
The 2014 Acura RLX is the highest scoring Executive Luxury Car in AutoPacific’s 2014 Ideal Vehicle Award research. The RLX designers, planners and engineers knew exactly what their target buyers wanted and designed the RLX to meet those needs. The Acura RLX is at the top of the list against a strong group of executive luxury entries such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Cadillac CTS Sedan, Volvo S80 and the Audi A6. RLX sells in such small numbers but, even with small sales, the car scores well in AutoPacific’s IVA research battery.
RLX owners clearly did not want their vehicle any different. Of the fifteen categories in the Ideal Vehicle questionnaire, the 2014 Acura RLX led in five satisfaction categories and was within three percentage points of another two.
The top five highest ratings by RLX owners are: same passenger room, same exterior size, same seat fit, same wheels, and the same cargo space.
Every vehicle cannot be perfect. RLX owners want more distinctive exterior styling than what they have now as well as more interior storage compartments. RLX owners also wants simpler information and entertainment technology. The RL and RLX have always been technology laden products, but their technology has gone beyond what their owners can cope with.
