Santa Barbara, CA January, 2014 – Santa Barbara Auto Group proudly offers the 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD. Billed as “the most advanced, powerful Acura ever,” the RLX features unrivaled handling, 377 horsepower, and a whopping 28/32/30 MPG rating.
“This car is like nothing our customers have ever driven before,” shares Scott Westbrook, general sales manager of Acura Santa Barbara. “We invite drivers to come experience it for themselves.”
The new RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) is a watershed for performance sedans – quite simply the most powerful and technologically advanced Acura ever built. This is no mere hybrid with one eye on the gas gauge. This is the RLX Sport Hybrid with both eyes on the road ahead.
Most manufacturers have a difficult time reconciling the two ideals – power and efficiency. One has to come at the expense of the other. Or does it? Not with the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD!
The RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD not only excels at both, with 377 total system horsepower and a 30 combined mpg rating, but it also achieves a third goal: Extraordinary Handling. From a standing start, acceleration on the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is swift and electric, powered by the dual rear motors to drive the rear wheels. Unlike gasoline engines, electric motors produce 100% of their torque the moment they are engaged. When you are in a tight spot and need some aggressive acceleration, the gasoline engine and all three electric motors work in assertive harmony. They deliver the power you need to all four wheels, in a seamless expression of expert engineering.
