Looks like 2019 Acura RLX is eSH-AWD only and didn't get the updated TLX/MDX infotainment system. Press release is not yet published on hondanews.com. But to be honest, the base model would have been a better sell if it at least come with standard mechanical SH-AWD.

Should've, could've, would've...

Very interesting. Actually, very interesting in 3 years when this thing is on the lot for $26k with 36k miles.

The FWD RLX was so dumb from the beginning...and all the option packages...itís like they learned zero lessons from the failures of the RL.

Its updated on the Acura site as well one fully loaded package, at 50k to 55k not a bad deal of course no one will pay the 62k according to Acura page, but in theory should raise transaction prices a bit and ESHAWD has accounted for most of RLX dismal sales maybe they plan to get more on the lots.

Interesting enough I sat in a 2018 last time I was at my Acura store. The updates are really nice. I can without reservation say that that materials, fit and finish on this car are where they need to be. But I agree if this is your flagship sedan it shouldn't be continuing with the old infotainment and should really be a showcase car. Why not a standard 400hp eSH-AWD system? I am still a firm believer that Acura should have kept the TSX, TL and ILX size vehicle and forget the RLX. The TL would have been the perfect car as the top of the sedan lineup.

I actually think the sizing of the current sedans are appropriate it itís the execution that was way off with the TLX being the best out of the 3. However, if the 2019 RDX is any indication of where Acura is headed, these 3 should at the very least should be highly competent in their next generations.

that is what is so frustrating to watch as a fan of the brand. They're just tone deaf to the market and the critics' responses.
