2014 Acura RLX Urban Luxury Sedan


Posted on by  

The new Acura RLX , which recently replaced the old Acura RL — was quite a presence at this year’s SEMA Show . There were two specially prepared RLX sedans unveiled Vegas, and one of them, dubbed the RLX Urban Luxury, coming from the talented designers at MAD Industries.

Acura described this RLX as "a performance luxury sedan for every day needs." The model includes exterior and interior upgrades, MAD Industries left the 310-horsepower, V-6 engine untouched.

The RLX Urban Luxury gets a new deck-lid spoiler from Acura Genuine Accessory and a set of sporty rims. The windows received a 3M Color Stable treatment too, which adds some style to the luxury sedan and gives its occupants a little added privacy

The interior is highlighted by a new 3M 1080 Scotchprint wrap in brushed black metallic and gloss-black accents.

For the most part, this modification is a little disappointing, as the RLX is ripe for some upgrades. Even a light tuning program could easily push its V-6 powerplant over 400 horsepower.

Around back, there is not much to look at, really. All that MAD added was a small spoiler to give the sedan a little sportier look.
