Take a look at some of the awesome features that come on the Acura RLX (and try to keep up with all these acronyms.)

P-AWS (Precision All-Wheel Steer) - this system alters the toe-angle of the rear wheels to improve the car's tracing of the desired turning line. This technology has existed since the 1980s, but the RLX will be the first to have this technology as fully electronic.

AHA (Agile Handling Assist) - this uses the anti-lock brake system to rotate the car into corners with greater stability.

LKAS (Lane Keeping Assist System) - this system helps steer your car back into its lane when you start drifting. You can actually feel the steering wheel push you back towards the center of the lane.

CMBS (Collision Mitigation Braking System) -causes your car to brake when a front-end collision appears imminent.

Which driving feature are you most excited about? Will you get all of these systems installed on your Acura RLX?

P-AWS and SH-AWD used together have to be my favorite. Still can't wait for the time I get a chance to both both technologies to work on a track. Some people have been fortunate to do so already!

wouldn't the constant toe in toe out cause the tires to wear faster than they normally would?
in theory yes, but it's not like when your wheels have the wrong toe in/out due to it being calibrated improperly or caused by hitting the curb or even from an accident. i think the extra tire wear from this set toe in and toe out won't make a big difference in how fast our tires wear.

Are there any features that you'd like to see on the RLX that aren't listed here. I would really like a parking assist feature. Living in a city, I have to parallel park quite often. I am pretty good at it, but it would be nice to have the assist for especially tight spots.

Yeah im actually surprised Acura hasn't got to that as yet, it's time they look into tech like this, even guide lines would be great but a full parking assist system like on the Lexus LS will help with sales.

They do have guidlines.

I dont trust the park assist. The last time I used park assist in a new Mercedes GLK my rim went to ****.

Yes, at the least they have guidelines to follow, the more high end systems as seen on the Lexus LS park the car for you.

It sure beats just having back up sensors that just beep.

The convenience is nice but at the same time shouldn't people know how to park their vehicle?

You are saying that there are guide lines on the RLX but not a self parking feature?

Has there ever been a problem with the Collision Mitigation Braking System braking when you don't want it to? I just feel strange about my car having the ability to brake without me actually doing it. I bet it has faster reflex times than me and saves lives and whatnot. I just am curious if it ever brakes the car when a collision is not imminent.
