2011 Acura RL Refreshed For A Dwindling Audience

The 2010 Acura RL holds the dubious title of Canada’s Worst Selling Car, with just 33 sold in 2010. Our northernly neighbors, who by all rights should be swayed by the car’s roomy interior and all-wheel drive, don’t seem to care for the car, and neither do Americans.

For 2011, the RL gets yet another refresh, but we have a hard time fathoming if anyone will care about Acura’s big sedan, which is long past its expiration date. The big news for this year is a 6-speed automatic and a bump in fuel economy, from 22 to 24 highway mpg. Special Hemholtz resonators help dampen road noise and are fitted inside new 18″ alloys, which should excite both geriatrics and their ungrateful grandchildren who want to borrow the car cruise the streets of Boca Raton.

Hit the jump to read all about the new Acura RL, but we suggest you have a strong cup of coffee first.
