    2014 Acura RLX Caught without Camo

    The folks at vtec.net have found images of the 2014 Acura RLX caught testing wearing minimal camo in China. The photos provide a detailed look at the interior of Acura’s new flagship model. There is lots of stitching on the dashboard and upper door panels, a hooded LCD display showing off an around view camera system, and what is hopefully a generous helping of genuine wood trim. Outside the new RLX sports a full LED headlight design that is expected to be optional or available only on the highest end trim levels.

    Meh, I think the A6 is starting to look really dated. I saw one the other day in a darker color and past the front end it's underwhelming to me.

    I have one word to describe it: Meh.

    Meh on the exterior.
    Meh on the interior.
    Meh on the technology.
    Meh on the navigation.
    Meh on the attention to detail especially to the "stitching" around the dashboard.
    Meh on the powerplant.

    Re: 2014 Acura RLX Caught without Camo

    Well, I do like the dual screens. I would assume the upper one is dedicated to maps and video as shown while the lower maintains a nearly persistent UI for HVAC and infotainment control.

    And to me, I think this is a better interpretation of the Acura front end, but I'll stick with GM, Ford and Chrysler.

    It looks great - but it needs more bi-xenon!

    I won't lie. This thing looks very classy and expensive. I think it's a great replacement to the ancient RL.
    I may be on the side of angels, but do not mistake me for one.

    In the fourth picture down, what is that circular thing on the upper-front part of the door panel (just ahead of the handle)? A light?

    Why does this car immediately evoke the Honda Accord at first glance for me?
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    HVAC vent. There's another one on the dash. Confused me at first too.
