Visit your Houston Acura Dealer this Valentine’s Day

February 12th, 2016 by

Your Houston Acura dealer, John Eagle Acura, would be happy to help you find the perfect gift for your Valentine. With a wide variety of luxury sedans and SUVs to choose from, John Eagle Acura is the perfect place to shop for your sweetie. If you’re looking for sedans, the 2016 Acura RLX will do the trick and beats rivals in its class like the BMW 5 Series Sedan without batting an eye.

You want safety features? Check! The RLX has height-adjustable front seatbelts to accommodate passengers of all shapes and sizes but the 5 Series Sedan doesn’t offer this option. The optional cross-path warning system is like driving with an extra set of eyes and uses wide-angle radar to detect vehicles approaching from the side. The 5 Series Sedan doesn’t offer this feature either.

In addition to those safety features, the RLX received five stars overall in the NHTSA front crash tests but the 5 Series Sedan only received four stars overall. The IIHS puts vehicles through a challenging front crash test known as the small overlap frontal offset crash test and the RLX received an overall rating of ‘Good’ but the 5 Series Sedan only received a rating of ‘Marginal.’

Prepare to be further impressed by the performance features of the Acura RLX. The RLX 3.5 SOHC V6 engine produces 310 horsepower and 272 lb.-ft. of torque but the BMW 535i Sedan 3.0 turbo 6-cylinder only produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. If you want an extra edge on the road, the Acura RLX will deliver it!

Not only is the Acura RLX fast but it is also fuel-efficient! An engine control system can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders when not needed to improve fuel efficiency, but the 5 Series Sedan does not have this capability. Additionally the cap-less fueling system on the RLX automatically opens when the nozzle is inserted for added convenience.

Forget the flower and chocolate this weekend and head to your Houston Acura dealer to test drive the 2016 Acura RLX. We promise you’ll love its swoon-worthy features and design!
