Acura’s 2016 Luxury Cars for Kentucky Drivers

We know that there are quite a few 2016 luxury cars available to Kentucky drivers—in fact, some 2017 models are already out—but we think that Acura’s lineup has something for nearly every kind of driver. Whether you’re in need of a dependable family crossover, a sporty and powerful sedan, or an entry-level luxury vehicle that’s a step above for the young professional, we have something for you at Kentucky Acura Dealers.

The best way to see each of these vehicles is to get behind the wheel, but we have an overview of each of our five models so you can have a better idea of what to expect when you arrive.

The Acura ILX

Though the 2017 model of the ILX has hit the streets of Kentucky already, it shares much in common with the 2016 Acura ILX. Built to be both affordable and luxurious, this entry-level sedan gives young professionals access to a classy car while they’re still climbing the corporate ladder. New features like Jewel Eye LED headlights put the sedan firmly in line with the rest of the Acura lineup while the available cabin amenities, unique sense of style, and powerful engine mark this as a true luxury sedan.

2017 Acura ILX

Engine: Under the hood of each 2016 ILX is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine capable of 201 hp and leaping from a stop with 180 lb-ft of torque; despite the power, it’s rated at an EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg.*

2017 Acura ILX

Seating: Don’t let the sleek, slim size of the ILX fool you, it has seating for up to five passengers in its spacious cabin. Power-adjustable heated front seats ensure it’s possible to get comfortable in any season, too.

2017 Acura ILX

Technology: Standard tech features like an in-dash touchscreen infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free compatibility, and Bluetooth for phone and audio keep you connected on the go.

2017 Acura ILX

Safety: Each new ILX has a multi-angle rearview camera as standard and can be upgraded with the AcuraWatch Plus package for added driver assistance and accident prevention features.

The Acura TLX

If the ILX is the entry-level luxury car, the 2016 Acura TLX takes that idea and infuses it with the DNA of the track, expanding on the amenities and giving drivers an option of two different engines (as well as Super Handling All-Wheel Drive on V6 models). While this is just the second model year for the TLX, it’s already made an impression on Kentucky drivers thanks to features like:

2016 Acura TLX

Standard Engine: Under the hood of each basic TLX is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque, paired to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. It’s fun to drive, and with an EPA-estimated 35 highway mpg on this engine,* you can take plenty of guilt-free joyrides.

2016 Acura TLX

V6 Engine: For some drivers, a luxury sedan or a sport sedan is defined by its power, and if you need more than the 4-cylinder has to offer, the available 3.5L V6 engine raises the stakes to 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive models are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway, too,* keeping the TLX incredibly efficient.

2016 Acura TLX

SH-AWD: 2016 TLX V6 models can be upgraded from front-wheel drive to the Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system for improved traction and control during wet and dry driving.

2016 Acura TLX

Interior Design: The sport-oriented look and feel of the cabin makes the TLX feel like it’s ready for the track, and both of the engines back it up. Available features like leather upholstery and heated front seating let you have performance and comfort at the same time.

The Acura RLX

The 2016 Acura RLX is the flagship sedan of our lineup, giving the full, elegant luxury car treatment by including as standard a technology package and a suite of advanced safety features. Don’t worry, though, with the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD and a variety of package upgrades available, there are plenty of options to further customize your sedan.

Highlights of the RLX include:


2016 Acura RLX

Advanced Tech Features: Because the Technology Package is standard, you’ll find a high level of technology and connectivity features, including satellite-linked navigation and a premium ELS stereo system.

Amenities like heated seating come standard for front passengers, and rear heated seats are available in the Advance Package, combining with the luxurious leather upholstery and advanced climate control to deliver the utmost in comfort in any season.

The Acura RDX

As with the ILX, the RDX has the 2017 model on the street already, and it updates the 2016 Acura RDX in some key areas. Of course, the staples that have made the RDX a choice for luxury crossover drivers are still there: a spacious cabin, five-passenger seating, a powerful and capable engine, and a suite of advanced features. When you need more space for cargo or have to make room for taking Fido to the vet, fold down the 60/40-split folding rear seat for even more space.

Amenities like these make even the base RDX enticing:


2017 Acura RDX

Climate Control: The standard automatic climate control lets you set the temperature and allow the RDX to do the rest. Acura’s crossover has a GPS-linked climate system that will help adjust for the heat from the sun as you drive, too.

2017 Acura RDX

Ergonomic Front Seats: Acura designers have built the front seats for maximum comfort whether you’re running errands or heading out on a long family road trip. Heating elements and available ventilated seating make you ready for hot or cold days.

2017 Acura RDX

Rearview Camera: Each new RDX comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera that shows what’s behind your car before backing up. Drive with the confidence of having three different views before backing out of your driveway.


In addition to these standard features, the RDX fits in among the 2016 luxury cars with a wide range of package upgrades to further customize it to your needs. Add on the standard 3.5L V6 engine (279 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque) and the 2016 RDX FWD fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 28 highway and 20 city mpg,* and it’s clear why so many drivers choose this crossover for their family vehicle.

The Acura MDX

While there seems to be no shortage of luxury crossovers on the market, very few of them have the ability to compete head-to-head with the 2016 Acura MDX. This seven-passenger crossover is built to have three rows from the start while many competing models have a third row available, put into the cargo area and fit for children at best. Part of the reason for this is that the MDX has just driven many of its old competitors out of the luxury market, and it’s due to features like these:

2016 Acura MDX

Power Tailgate: Give up trying to juggle the groceries and the keys while trying to open the tailgate, the MDX’s power tailgate is ready to open for you.

2016 Acura MDX

HomeLink Remote: Cut down on the number of remotes in your car with the standard HomeLink system that can be programmed with up to three different gate or garage codes.

2016 Acura MDX

Bluetooth: Standard on every MDX, Bluetooth lets you pair your smartphone for hands-free phone calls and streaming audio. After pairing with the MDX, the infotainment system will recognize it on its own and connect automatically.

2016 Acura MDX

Leather: Leather upholstery and interior trim comes standard, bringing a level of class to the MDX that many automakers are requiring upgrades for these days.


These features, the spacious cabin, the bold exterior design, and the range of package upgrades make the MDX one of the most competitive crossovers. Each one is powered by the dependable 290-hp 3.5L V6 engine, available with front-wheel drive or Acura’s SH-AWD for added control.
