I think this is an important question to ask.

There is no doubt that when it comes to value, the RLX is not up there.

It is being constantly compared to the Lexus GS, LS, Mercedes E/S class, BMW 5 series, etc

And people knock on the RLX for having a spazzed up Accord engine, FWD, and a not as nice interior.

So why do you think the RLX is still purchased?

I'm not sure where you got the value is not there. It's bigger than the GS and ES. It's far cheaper than the LS. It's cheaper than all other car comparably equipped (by 10k). The biggest knock against it is that it's not RWD but the PAws help somewhat. It's also class leading in MPG.

So yeah, it's not for everyone. But in terms of value for those not needing RWD it's way up there.

Is it really 10k cheaper comparably equipped? because all I've heard is that in terms of pricing it really doesnt offer much over the competition. And when it comes to driving experience it falls short.

also wanted to add that being bigger doesnt really mean anything. when i am talking about value I mean interior quality, features, performance, handling, driving experience /// all worked into the price.

Test driving a RLX and a TL SH AWD I can't say I'm sold on the cost of the RLX

Can't beat the AWD in the TL

And I know the RLX will come with a AWD version but its going to cost way too much money... I think Acura should have offered the AWD version standard (as said for the 90000th time on the internet)

AWD will come standard one day, but I see this as their way to slowly ease people into it and not jump ahead and have nothing significant to offer people later on.

At least with AWD being optional, it lowers the price.
