Year-to-year changes[edit | edit source]
1996[edit | edit source]
Replacing the old Acura Legend sedan, the 3.5RL was the largest, most luxurious vehicle Acura has ever built. With its standard 3.5-liter, 210-horsepower engine it delivered impressive performance in a silky smooth package. The RL was a premier luxury sedan with hand-selected, leather trimmed interior, rich wood accent, an Automatic Climate Control System, a power moonroof and an 8-speaker Acura/Bose music system with CD changer. Like all Acura sedans and coupes, the RL featured a double wishbone suspension derived from Formula One technology. It provided amazingly precise response and handling and exceptional ride comfort.
The first Acura RLs went on sale in February 1996.
1999[edit | edit source]
The 1999 RL was introduced on October 30, 1998, and went on sale through late September 1999.
