2013 Acura RLX Concept sports sedan at the 2012 New York Auto Show. The new 2013 Acura RLX Concept will replace the RL as Acura’s flagship model in a segment that the company has constantly failed to deliver. The styling 2013 Acura RLX Concept builds on Acura’s so-called ‘Keen Edge’ design motif, as seen on the smaller ILX. The concept’s stance is accentuated by a set of 20-inch forged aluminum wheels shod in 255/35 R20 high-performance tires, which is probably one of the few elements on the concept that won’t make it into production.
