Besides the all-wheel drive system, the new Acura RLX Sporty Hybrid SH-AWD will also benefit from a torque vectoring system.

The hybrid powertrain is linked to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission which also contributes to the good fuel consumption figures.

“The Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, the flagship of the Acura luxury-performance sedan lineup, will be on display at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 20, 2013,” says the company.
