Does it have good proportions? No. But it's stylistically 10000% better than the RLX. The XTS looks nothing like the other GM Epsilion platform mates.

This is a long Accord with an Acura badge.

I agree. And it sounds like most American families to me. I definitely fit within that description. Besides, I like the fact Acuras are well-built, come loaded with all the bells and whistles, and are a lot less expensive to maintain than European luxury sedans. They also hold their value pretty well.
It's also the reason why Acura's sales are in the toilet. Everyone else offers a much more attractive product (even Lincoln!) at more competitive prices.

This thing is dead on arrival.
