Bingo. The RLX should be compared to the Avalon and and Azera. As much as I am critical of the new Avalon, I seriously doubt the lengthened and tarted up Accord will be seen as anything other than a lengthened and tarted up Accord. Like the ILX, the RLX betrays its very pedestrian roots.

The new RLX would fare poorly against the current Genesis and the next Genesis is bound to be a humdinger. The next CTS???

RLX=DOA
