On one hand, when it comes to interior comfort, it's entirely obvious that a great deal of attention was paid to the design, materials and convenience amenities found inside the Acura 3.5RL flagship luxury sedan.
Take, for instance, major details like the location of controls, passenger head, hip and shoulder room, the car's advanced soundproofing technology, and even state-of-the-art vibration- and bump-absorbing seats.
On the other hand, there are the not-so-obvious luxury features, like like the 3.5RL's advanced automatic climate control system that filters pollen and other contaminants from the interior environment.
The filter medium is so fine, it can trap all particles of 3 microns or larger, including almost all pollen and dust. It also inhibits the passage of bacteria as small as a half-micron, as well as most components of cigarette smoke and particulates ,in diesel exhaust.
The filter has two layers: both are composed of felt-like, nonwoven fabric fibers, and one layer is electrostatically charged to help attract and trap even more dust and other airborne particles.
"We've, used some of the most sophisticated air conditioning and air filtration technology ever put in an automobile," said Rich Thomas, Acura's executive vice president and general manager. "Not only does our climate control system cool the RL's interior faster than any other luxury import sedan in its class, it captures even the most minute particles that would try to find their way into the car. That's what I call attention to detail."
All Acura products are available nationwide through the approximately 270 Acura dealerships. They are backed by a four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, as well as the true luxury ownership experience featuring the Acura TLC Customer Satisfaction Program, which provides 24~hour roadside assistance, concierge service, trip planning and other benefits.
