Honda/Acura fansite Temple of VTEC has a series of spy photos of the Acura RLX taken in China, revealing the car’s interior details, and one lone exterior shot.

As you can see, the car is non-descript in that special Acura sort of way The faux-BMW Hoffmeister kink is there at the rear window, while the front is indistinguishable from the rest of the lineup. The interior looks well finished, but again, there’s little to distinguish it from the rest of the pack. Tomorrow, we’ll get a proper look at the RLX when it’s unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show.

    Those headlights look like spiders eyes. They're also about as attractive.

    Seems like Acura is still building RLs for that 50-something retired structural engineer who happens to be the only guy who appreciates Acura's brand of pseudo-conservative styling and technology. Take the RLX out of the picture and he'd probably end up driving a Buick or, if he wanted to be adventurous, an Infiniti G sedan.

    It's an Acura Taurus. Why Honda? Why?

    Gotta hand it to the Honda guys. They're persistent. At times for what is seemingly Quixotic level. And this RLX is the perfect example. They just keep plugging at it, but continue to offer it just as they were, not addressing what makes them a failure in the first place. It's just an Acura sedan, size XXL. It doesn't seem to have anything compelling that would make people choose it over other car, or over smaller, lesser priced Acura sedans. How many people's asking for something just like the TL, TS, or Honda Accord for that matter, but just a little bit bigger?
