Why do people buy the RLX?

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?

they are improving I'd say. Where as Acura reliability has been going down slowly.

I do think that if they offered the AWD version as standard it would offer better value.
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)
