mid-size premium - sedan
With a redesign much needed Acura has gone into its racing garage and found the right design to replace its now ailing RL design we have today. With its aggressive front end and its contoured rear this new RL will certainly turn heads with both average buyers and the tuner market. Its nice to see Acura finally has said, “Hey the RL is a cool car and we can prove it” and that’s what they have done since, the new RL defiantly is not your grandpa’s Acura. This sleek new race bred RL has a more aggressive looking front end with its sloping hood line and “I mean business” front headlamps.
This new RL is making a bid statement on behalf of Acura and its now saying that Acura can play in the luxury sport sedan sandbox too. A nice touch to this new RL is its highly aggressive front headlamps, which seem to shout “ I’m bad to the bone, and don’t forget it.” The new headlamps have cut the front out perfectly for a great looking front grille, which is followed beautifully onto the hood. You have to hand it to Acura for adding the illusion of a skirt kit, which follows beautifully along the bottom onto the back where it becomes part of the rear bumper, and gives the rear bumper a more edgy design. With a more sporting look the new RL is well designed to fit the needs of some sport rims and that is what Acura has done beautifully with these split 5-point rims which sit on relatively big tires that help keep this angry beast attached to the road. With a new front comes a new rear and Acura has done this part beautifully with the way the rear tail lamps follow the trunk and curve perfectly around the rear fender. The rear exhaust ports are a well-designed feature, which seems to have been designed right into the rear of the car rather than added afterwards. Altogether this new RL is one well-designed replacement, which adds Acura’s famous center point feature to this incredible looking sport sedan. Although it would be nice to see Acura add a coupe or convertible to the new RL model since the cars design is well suited to be shorted into a 2-door.
