Precision Concept to be a design direction for all future Acuras.

The Acura RLX, which is also sold as the Honda Legend, was introduced in late-2012 and is due for a mid-life facelift. Even before the facelifted model goes official, details have emerged about the car's second generation.

The current Acura RLX, introduced in 2012, is yet to get a mid-life facelift.

According to a report from autoevolution, the next-gen Acura RLX will be inspired by the Acura Precision Concept that was introduced at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. Developed by the Acura Design Studio in California, the Acura Precision Concept is more than a concept vehicle. It's a study that will be a design direction for all future Acura vehicles.

The Acura Precision Concept is a bold expression of the brand's DNA of "Precision Crafted Performance". Designed around the "quantum continuum" design theme, the concept car measures 204 inches in length, 84 inches in width and 52 inches in height, and has a wheelbase of 122 inches.

Along with an exceptionally low and wide stance, long dash-to-axle ratio and deeply sculpted surfaces, the Acura Precision Concept features Jewel Constellation LED headlights, 22-inch wheels and floating LED tail lights which together increase the concept's dramatic appeal. These characteristics, including the Diamond Pentagon grille which debuted in the concept, will be seen on the next-gen Acura RLX.
