RLX Sport Hybrid joins Acura lineup in spring 2014, with pricing expected to begin at $60,000.
Interior put together well but lacks real-wood trim, has complex dual-screen infotainment system.
Push-button gear selector new for an Acura.
Head-up display, shown above gauge cluster, also another Acura first.
Same 3.5L DI V-6 gasoline engine from RLX used, but three electric motors, one in front and two in rear, also employed.
Front seats comfortable, contoured, supportive. Rear space has plenty of legroom, although outboard headroom scant.
Dimensions basically unchanged from non-hybrid RLX although some sheetmetal changes made due to new electric AWD system.
The hybrid version of Acura's flagship sedan marries high power with high fuel economy, but the car's interior is a mixed bag. (See related story: Acura RLX Hybrid Tech-Tastic.)
