Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive: A New Kind of Performance

Acura vehicles turn heads for their distinctive style, but drivers from Monterey to San Jose are just as likely to choose them for performance. At Los Gatos Acura in Los Gatos, we are doing our best to redefine what drivers think when they hear “hybrid.” When Acura builds a hybrid, it builds a Sport Hybrid. Paired with Acura’s distinctive Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, these Sport Hybrid vehicles are inspired by the NSX supercar. Both the Acura RLX and Acura MDX are available with Sport Hybrid SH-AWD powertrains that elevate them further above competing sedans and crossovers.

Acura NSX: The Inspiration

With a trio of electric motors, the Acura NSX supercar has been engineered to give drivers the utmost control, with instant acceleration and yaw control.

  • Direct Drive Motor: Between the engine and transmission is an electric motor that delivers immediate torque and acceleration.
  • Intelligent Power Unit: The brain behind this powertrain, the Intelligent Power Unit is also the primary battery and directs energy to the front and rear electric motors.
  • Twin Motor Unit: Each of the front wheels features its own electric motor that directs power to the wheels and makes passing and accelerating feel effortless.

While the 500-hp 3.5L twin-turbo V6 provides the basis for the NSX power, it’s the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system that allows a driver to control such a precision sculpted vehicle with grace and finesse. A finesse you can bring to the RLX sedan and MDX crossover.

Acura RLX: Sport Hybrid Meets Luxury Sedan

The NSX is built for the track, but what happens when its revolutionary technology is paired with the epitome of luxury? You get the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid. The interior of the Acura RLX is smooth, sleek, truly elegant, and the Sport Hybrid system delivers an acceleration just as smooth – a car that drives as luxuriously as it looks.

  • On a curve, the outside rear wheel spins faster to rotate through the turn while the interior rear wheel creates a drag to more swiftly rotate through the turn.
  • With the rear tires taking up some of the burden of turning, the driver has even more control over the front end for a nimble and responsive car – despite its size.
  • These benefits come automatically, letting the driver to focus on the joy of the drive.
