Exciting and luxurious, the 2010 Acura RL features a 3.7L 300-horsepower V6 engine that cranks out 271 lb-ft of torque at a mid-revving 5000 RPM. Suggested pricing ranges between $46,830 and $54,250. The RL is the Acura Division’s flagship 4-door touring sedan – and it is well-equipped to compete with the likes of the BMW 528, the Infiniti M35, the Lexus GS 350 and the Mercedes Benz E-Class. It is a totally-tasteful blend of smooth power, nearly-clairvoyant handling abilities and safety technologies that will spin your head.
The base V6 engine of the 2010 RL Acura is mated up to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that features the SportShift mode for manual paddle shifting. Add in the standard highly-innovative Acura Super-Handling AWD system and you have an enticing recipe for optimal driving excitement. The RL grips the roads even in slippery, wet conditions. Standard safety features include the (AFS) Active Front Lighting System, integrated rearview monitoring, (ACC) Adaptive Cruise Control, (CMBS) Collision Mitigation Braking System, (VSA) Vehicle Stability Assist and voice-activated navigation that provides realtime traffic and weather reports – and the list goes on.
The Acura RL for 2010 proudly carries on the extensive redesign that it received last year. It is Acura’s top-rated luxury sedan. Standard features for your bliss include a powered moonroof, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, self-heating front seats, genuine leather upholstery, satellite radio, USB ports and more. To say that the ride quality is comfortable and smooth is a definitive understatement. Even on rough road surfaces, you’ll find it difficult to spill your coffee. Stop-and-go traffic conditions are no problem either due to its stop-on-a-dime braking and extra-crispy acceleration.
The 2010 Acura RL is very easy to drive very well. Its masterful combination of technologies and design standards make it one of the surest-handling, safest vehicles on the planet. Cabin space is elegant and very well done in every respect. Instruments are visible, attractive and highly functional. The Acura RL is quite simply very near to the best, if not the best, car in its class.
