"This redesign of the 2018 Acura RLX is transformational, creating road presence and styling that better reflect underlying performance capabilities of the vehicle", said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president and general manager, in a statement. While not all new, there's a host of changes both inside and out, through the two powertrains carry over unchanged. This Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system is similar to the hybrid setup used in the NSX supercar. For the car's mid-cycle refresh, Acura has made the RLX more distinctive. That's a lot of acronyms, but there's a lot of tech behind those names.

Yisrael Kristal (1903 - 2017)
Usually in Jewish faith, when Jewish boys become 13 years old, they become accountable for their actions and become a bar mitzvah. Kristal's daughter told the New York Times her father had prayed every morning for the past 100 years.

I have been accused of being the only person under 50 who gets excited by late-model Acuras, and that may be, but I think anybody can appreciate the potential coolness of an all-wheel drive 377 horsepower direct-injection-V6-plus-three-electric-motor luxury sedan. The output in this instance is unchanged at 310 hp and 369 Nm, but drive is now relayed to the front wheels via a new 10-speed automatic transmission that displaces the previous six-speed unit. It's handsome and sure to be less divisive than before.

Bollywood actor Sitaram Panchal dies a day after celebrating wedding anniversary
In his last Facebook post on July 20, the actor thanked his friends and film fraternity for their concerns. Unfortunately, he breathed his last today and the news was confirmed by actor-comedian Navin Prabhakar.

Hoping to reverse those lagging fortunes, the 2018 iteration of the RLX updates the exterior design, replacing the metal beak grille with the "diamond pentagon" grille shared with the recently updated MDX and TLX. Inside, the RLX receives new seats and upgraded materials. As such, standard features include a Krell Audio System, surround view cameras, parking sensors, LED fog lights, remote engine start, ventilated and heated front seats, and heated rear seats and steering wheel. A new Espresso interior color will be offered for the inside, and for the outside buyers will be able to choose two new premium colors: Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl. It includes forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and road departure mitigation. The newest feature is Traffic Jam Assist that works in conjunction with the adaptive cruise control's low-speed follow function to keep the auto in its lane and at a safe distance from the vehicle in front. These include adaptive cruise control, low speed following assistance, and a newly-added traffic jam assist.

Kizer takes 'step' in Browns' QB clash, could get next start
For the game, Kizer finished 11-of-18 for 184 yards, and all but stamped his name on the starting Browns quarterback throne. New Orleans' defense was terrible last season, although there were slight improvements in the latter portion of the season.

Look for more photos and pricing later this year.
