World technology firsts

Jewel-Eye™ LED headlights enhance the RLX's modern and distinctive appearance while providing outstanding light distribution and improved down-the-road illumination.


Huh? I thought Audi was the 1st?

Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS) continuously monitors and calculates the correct amount of independent rear-wheel steering (toe angle) necessary to help the RLX meet driving conditions with the utmost ease and stability.


Unless I am mistaken, Nissan/Infiniti has been offering this on G for almost at least 5 years.


Scheduled to debut on the 2014 RLX, Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) is an innovative new drive system that blends hybrid power with Acura's advanced Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). (More information on the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD will be provided prior to its on-sale date.)


That's a 1st. And I don't see anyone beating them to market with a similar system.


Engineered by one of the world's most premium audio companies, the available 14-speaker Krell premium audio system sets a new benchmark in automotive audio performance (RLX with Krell Audio package and RLX with Advance package trims).


Ok but that's like Chrsyler 300 is the 1st to have Beats Audio.



U.S. Technology Firsts

The available next-generation AcuraLink™ delivers a bevy of new information, media, convenience, and security services via embedded two-way communications and web-enabled devices, including AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ featuring freeway traffic and all-new surface street traffic.


XM traffic has been around forever. Audi and Merc has been partnered with Google and T-Mobile to provide mobile internet data.


The available Front seatbelt e-pretensioners use electronic controls to reduce tension for a more comfortable seatbelt experience during normal driving conditions. This is the first seatbelt tensioning system to incorporate yaw movement as well as braking.


Sure. Just not sure if Volvo has this already or not.

Jewel-Eye: I think they are talking about the design/layout of the LED lights?

P-AWS: I'm guessing it's first for having left/right independent rear-wheel toe angle control system, using an all-electric system. Do these apply to the G?

Krell: lol, I guess it's something to brag about considering that their basic system would cost $65k+ from what I've heard!

AcuraLink: I think they are focusing on how all the features are integrated into this system.

Seatbelt: As the description says, they are focusing on yaw movement and braking.

Didn't know P-AWS is electric. G's system is mechanical.

That is correct Jewel Led use led beams that shoot through seperate lenses, there a few videos out there on the concept. I wouldn't really brag about this an industry first though it just another way of implementing a led source for automotive use.
PAWS: Honda was playing with 4 WS in the 80's 90's also, but this is the world first to have toe in and toe out and an independant rear system also it is electrical.(I think this is worth bragging about)
