From its sculpted, streamlined body style and luxuriously refined interior to engineering and amenities that inspire as effortlessly as they exhilarate, the RL sets an ultramodern tone for ultimate sedan luxury. It’s flagship automotive technology without compromise or equal. STYLE DESIGN 18-INCH WHEELS STRUCTURE POWER FOLDING SIDE MIRRORS REAR PARKING SENSORS* The RL’s aggressive exterior design has been crafted with nothing but high-performance purpose in mind. The design momentum begins with its chiseled hood, which seamlessly flows to the forward-mounted acoustic glass windshield, and finishes with a rear overhang. Cutting-edge aerodynamic panels help redirect airflow to lessen vehicle lift at highway-driving speeds. The cabin features flush side glass for reduced drag and less wind noise. But perhaps the most exciting aspect to the exterior design of the 2012 RL is that it looks as fast as it moves. Impressive 15-spoke 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with large-diameter tires connect you to the road like never before while enhancing the RL’s confident style and aggressive appearance. Plus, the large integrated dual-outlet chrome exhausts hint at an engine enriched with horsepower, attitude and pulse-racing performance. Advanced structure is what an advanced car is made of. In the RL’s case it incorporates strong, yet lightweight, structural components made from materials such as aluminum, magnesium and carbon fibre. The driving result is a reduction in the RL Elite’s curb weight, which in turn improves handling and increases the performance and fuel efficiency. The RL features power folding side mirrors that make getting into the tightest of parking spots a matter of convenience. With the simple push of a button, your side mirrors fold in to help you glide into a space between two cars or that last open spot in the parking garage. Built seamlessly into the RL’s bumper are the innovative rear parking sensors that help you make difficult parking jobs with ease. When the RL is in reverse, a series of audible beeps alerts you to obstacles that are behind the vehicle or out of sight. *Does not replace the driver’s responsibility to exercise due care while reversing. Progress has been made H AN DL I NG STEERING POWER PADDLE SHIFTERS 4-WHEEL VENTILATED DISC BRAKES SPORT SUSPENSION To optimize performance steering at high speeds and increase maneuverability at lower speeds, the RL relies on a sophisticated speed-sensing, electronically controlled power-steering system. Now, from quick hairpins and sweeping highway curves to tight city-centre agility, your overall experience is one of confident control. As they say, “All luxury and no performance can make for comfortably dull driving.” Thankfully, you’ll find manual upshift and downshift paddleshifting transmission controls mounted just behind the RL’s leather-wrapped steering wheel. Specifically tuned to complement the RL’s already quick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission, paddle shifters provide you with that added touch of exhilaration and excitement so many other luxury sedans can’t seem to put their finger on. When you’re driving a performance luxury sedan, nothing short of exceptional stopping power will do. That’s why the RL comes with special high-friction brake pads for that distinctive sporty feel and incredibly quick, responsive braking power. Furthermore, that’s why all four wheels have ventilated brake rotors and robust 4-piston aluminum front brake calipers to help minimize weight shifting and optimize suspension response to give you stopping power when you need it. Master the art of cornering with the smooth rideenhanced control of the 4-wheel independent double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension. Experience the science of suspension with the multi-link rear suspension that’s designed to provide solid resistance to lateral forces and less rear lift during hard braking. Plus, large front and rear stabilizer bars minimize vehicle body roll, delivering precise firm handling and a solid steering feel. Experience a more refined adrenaline rush TEC HNOLOGY ACURA/BOSE® PREMIUM SOUND SYSTEM An exceptionally rich audio experience unlike anything you’ve ever heard in a car awaits you in the RL. A truly cutting-edge 260-watt digital amplifier powers 10 acoustically positioned speakers. The in-dash 6-disc CD/DVD-Audio DTS® changer with an AM/FM/XM®* tuner can read various audio media formats to provide a true 5.1 digital surround sound experience. And with such amazingly high audio resolution, dynamic range and full frequency response, the system delivers premium sound with phenomenal fidelity throughout the interior soundscape. The science behind the sophistication DRIVER RECOGNITION As long as your RL key is within sensor range, simply touch the inside of the driver’s side door handle to unlock the door. And following the same procedure on the passenger’s side, touch the inside of the door handle and the system will unlock all the doors. Actually, you can open the trunk, start the engine, drive, shut the engine off and re-lock all the doors without ever touching a key. Plus, with the programmable driver’s recognition system, the outside mirrors, seats and climate controls can all be personalized at the push of a button. ILLUMINATED STEERING WHEEL-MOUNTED CONTROLS VOICE-ACTIVATED SATELLITE-LINKED NAVIGATION HANDSFREELINK™ AND BLUETOOTH®ENABLED TECHNOLOGY Behold convenience. Easy-to-read-and-reach steering wheel-mounted controls let you adjust the audio, telephone, and Multi-Information Display and engage the cruise control. And you can do all of this without ever having to remove your hands from the luxurious leather-wrapped steering wheel. The RL can zero in on your location almost anywhere in North America. It can also access its search directory to help you find directions. Recognizing up to 800 verbal commands, the system is equipped with bilingual voice-recognition software and features real-time driving directions by voice or guiding-map display. Simply ask the system to show you the most direct route to your destination, offer an alternate route or, with the Zagat® Survey ratings, help you pick a restaurant based on the kind of cuisine you’re craving. Program and link your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone to the HandsFreeLink telephone interface to make, receive and transfer calls without interruption or having to remove your hands from the steering wheel. Say the word and – provided your phone is located inside the cabin – calling numbers will be displayed, your phone will respond to voice activation and you will hear the caller’s voice over the audio system. Plus, the system operates in English or French and is capable of integrating up to six different compatible phones, turning your RL into a tastefully appointed command centre. USB AUDIO PLAYBACK Conveniently housed in the centre console, the USB device connector and auxiliary input jack enable you to plug in any number of compatible MP3 portable audio players. Plus, you can control the playback volume and track selection from your steering wheel-mounted controls. *Includes a no-charge trial of 3 months, beyond which service fees apply. Available in 10 Canadian provinces and 48 contiguous U.S. states. See terms and conditions at L UXURY ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION (ANC) ACTIVE SOUND CONTROL (ASC) ADJUSTABLE LEATHER-TRIMMED SEATS HEATED AND VENTILATED SEATS An already quiet ride is now even quieter with the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system that cancels engine noise by countering it with opposing sound frequencies emitted from the sound system. Two ceiling microphones monitor low-frequency noise and, when detected, the ANC system counteracts and cancels the disturbance with an equivalent waveform. Operating in unison with the ANC system, Active Sound Control smoothes out the sound created by the engine as it goes through its full rpm cycle. Utilizing advanced in-cabin microphones and complex electronic sensors, the system moderates noise made at low rpms and enhances the more progressive sounds the engine makes at higher rpms. Even the greatest distance between two points seems shorter when you’re sitting comfortably in one of the two tightly bolstered, perforated leather-trimmed front seats of the Acura RL. Finding the ideal driving position is easy with the 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with poweradjustable lumbar support and programmable driver recognition memory. Now, wherever you’re heading, your seat will feel exactly as it should – perfect. And for the front passenger, there’s an 8-way power-adjustable seat with power lumbar support as well. An additional measure of sumptuous driver and passenger comfort comes from the standard heated and ventilated seats in the 1st- and 2nd-row outboard positions. Featuring two heat settings, each seat offers a little extra coldweather comfort. Plus, for warm-weather relief, the front leather seats feature the benefit of in-seat ventilation, making the RL a true luxury sedan for all seasons. First class for five PE R FOR M A NC E Brawn, beautifully done 3.7-LITRE, 24-VALVE, VTEC® V-6 ENGINE HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE VTEC ENGINEERING At 300 horsepower, the 3.7-litre, 24-valve, SOHC, VTEC V-6 is one of the most powerful engines Acura makes. And with lightweight aluminumalloy block and heads for improved efficiency and heat shedding, it’s one of the most technically advanced too. The engine heads feature a unique 4-valve design for optimal engine fuel flow, offering low-rpm torque for acceleration off the line and high-rpm power for passing on the highway. All the while, the Multi-Point Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI®) system offers you astounding performance and fuel efficiency in a low-emission vehicle with a Tier 2 Bin 5 rating. Experience pure propulsion courtesy of the incredible 300 horsepower and maximum 271 lb.-ft. of torque produced by the VTEC power plant. Plus, thanks to innovative VTEC engine refinement, the high-inertia intake manifold and other powerband-enhancing technologies, the broad, flat torque curve allows for the feeling of virtually instant acceleration. Before VTEC engineering, engine tuning was always a compromise between balancing low-end torque and high-end power. Today, utilizing two entirely different camshaft profiles, VTEC engines deliver amazingly responsive power across the entire rpm range. At slow speeds, the engine provides lower valve lift and shorter cam profile openings, resulting in higher gas velocities and greater low-end rpm torque. As engine speeds increase, VTEC switches to a cam profile with higher valve lift and longer opening duration, for greater airflow and a boost in high-end rpm horsepower. Confidence has been built Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). Precision-tuned for the RL, this exceptionally advanced all-wheel-drive technology helps you gain more traction in less-than-perfect conditions and provides you with the confidence to carve the perfect corner in every other condition. ELECTROMAGNETIC CLUTCH CARBON FIBRE-REINFORCED PROPELLER SHAFT DURING STRAIGHT-LINE ACCELERATION DURING A MODERATE CORNER DURING ACCELERATION THROUGH A CORNER DURING STRAIGHT-LINE CRUISING Operating in unison with the SH-AWD® system are variable electromagnetic clutches that feature a compact 2-speed planetary gear set. The multi-plate clutch electronically regulates rear-wheel torque based on your driving demands and compensates by adjusting the acceleration of the outside rear turning wheel to inspire a further measure of cornering confidence and exhilaration. Originally developed for use in aerospace and competitive auto racing, advanced carbon-fibre technology now finds a home in the RL. Extremely lightweight and strong enough to handle the amazing 271 lb.-ft. of torque produced by the engine, the carbon-fibre propeller shaft produces fewer vibrations and less noise than a traditional metal shaft, which results in an exceedingly smooth, stealth-like ride. The groundbreaking SH-AWD system offers dramatically enhanced traction, control and acceleration in all weather or loose road conditions. Accelerate, and the system directs up to 40% of the engine’s torque to the rear wheels to, in turn, deliver full power to the ground. SH-AWD delivers a remarkably neutral steering feel as the rear wheels help generate cornering power. Electronic sensors monitor the speed and tightness of the turn, and automatically vary torque to the outside cornering rear wheel, resulting in enhanced stability and driver control. Here, the advanced SH-AWD technology stands alone. The outside cornering wheel gets up to 100% of the rear-wheel torque and is accelerated to rotate 5% faster than the inside cornering wheel, providing greater turning force and an incredibly stable corner line. SH-AWD’s sophisticated electronic controls automatically monitor road conditions and alternate torque from front to rear, as well as splitting rear-wheel torque from left to right. The end result is a continuously smooth, stable ride in poor weather or road conditions. AC TI VE SA FE TY Exceptionally forward thinking ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (ACC) ACTIVE FRONT LIGHTING SYSTEM (AFS) The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system allows you to set a time and distance interval between you and the car driving in front of you. During highway cruising simply engage the ACC, and the system will prompt you to choose a short, medium or long interval between you and the vehicle ahead. The system will then maintain the exact throttle speed and, if required, automatically apply moderate braking, to ensure your selected distance is maintained. The RL comes standard with the Active Front Lighting System (AFS), which automatically swivels headlights from left to right up to 20 degrees to enhance visibility while cornering at night. HIGH-INTENSITY DISCHARGE (HID) HEADLIGHTS High-powered HID headlights produce an intensely brilliant beam of focused light to improve your ability to identify what’s on the road ahead and what to avoid. Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS®) For advanced safety and a level of luxury that extends beyond conventional wisdom, the 2012 RL is equipped with the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Powered by a radar transmitter located behind the vehicle’s front grille, the system instinctively determines the distance and closing speed of the vehicle directly ahead of you. 1. RECOGNITION OF POSSIBLE COLLISION  If the closing speed exceeds a programmed threshold, the system warns the driver with audio and visual alerts. 2. SEAT BELTS TIGHTEN AND LIGHT BRAKING BEGINS If no braking or speed reduction is detected, the system will gently pull the driver’s seat belt and automatically begin light braking. 3. STRONG BRAKING If all warnings have been ignored and the system determines an impact is unavoidable, strong braking is automatically applied to reduce the collision speed and mitigate the force of the accident. S AF E TY SIX AIRBAGS ABS Maximum safety is achieved with six airbags designed to protect all occupants inside the cabin. Depending on the point and force of impact, the RL will deploy dual-stage, dual-threshold front airbags that activate at one of two rates depending on the severity of the impact; front side airbags with the innovative passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) that will not release if the system detects a small-sized or improperly positioned passenger; and side curtain airbags with state-of-the-art rollover sensors. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps maintain steering control when braking hard on wet, slippery or loose surfaces, while Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) balances braking forces at each wheel to help compensate for weight distribution inside the cabin. Plus, there’s a Brake Assist feature that senses a panic stop and applies maximum braking power to help you stop quickly. At Acura, Safety Through Innovation is based on the idea that an advanced driving experience starts with advanced safety features. This guiding principle is reinforced through the extensive number of standard safety features and use of innovative technologies you’ll find in all Acura vehicles. VSA® TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM MAINTENANCE MINDER SYSTEM ACE™ REARVIEW CAMERA* The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system with Traction Control will automatically detect and correct understeer or oversteer situations before you’re even aware there’s a need. The system intuitively monitors your driving conditions and automatically reduces the throttle and/or applies braking to individual wheels. Should a loss of traction occur during acceleration on slippery road surfaces, Traction Control will compensate to get you safely underway. Correct tire pressure is critical to safety, performance and fuel efficiency. Enter the RL’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which continually monitors the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, a transponder attached to the wheel’s valve stem transmits the information to a receiver, and a warning appears on your instrument panel indicating which tire requires attention. Instead of following a traditional kilometreand-calendar maintenance schedule, the RL instinctively calculates service needs based on your driving habits. This advanced system takes into account engine revolutions, stop-and-go traffic experience, weather extremes and the frequency of short trips to determine when your next service visit should be. The system helps coordinate oil-servicing dates and other routine maintenance as well. The innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) body structure adopts a high-tensile, high-efficiency unit-body safety cell structure to provide enhanced protection from multi-directional collision. ACE reduces the concentrated force of a frontal impact by absorbing energy over a large area and dispersing it away from you and other occupants inside the interior cabin space. Additionally, ACE is also designed to help reduce occupant injuries caused by misalignment in collisions between vehicles of different sizes. The rearview camera shows a colour image on the navigation-system screen of the area directly behind the vehicle. Even if the navigation system is turned off, the camera is activated automatically when you engage reverse, giving you a clear picture of what is behind you. *Does not replace the driver’s responsibility to exercise due care while reversing.
