2012 Acura RL

2012 RL Photos
As the flagship for the Acura Division, the Acura RL is one of the most sophisticated touring sedans on the road, blending smooth power and responsive handling with cutting-edge technologies and luxurious appointments. The RL is powered by a 300-hp 3.7-liter V6 engine, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and paddle shifters. Acura's exclusive Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system enhances grip, stability and all-weather control, while an electric power assist steering system provides direct feedback. Every RL is outfitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights and a power moonroof; interior comforts include heated front seats, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, satellite radio, a USB port and HandsFreeLink (Bluetooth) wireless connectivity/audio streaming. An available Technology Package adds heated/ventilated front seats and an Active Front Lighting System (AFS), as well as a voice-activated navigation system with integrated rearview camera parking assist and real-time traffic and weather information. To the Technology Package, the Advance Package adds power-folding exterior mirrors and adaptive cruise control with a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Standard safety features include four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, front side-impact airbags, overhead curtain airbags, active front head restraints and a tire pressure monitoring system. Following a refresh last year, the Acura RL carries over unchanged for 2012.
