What’s a competent luxury sedan to do in a class of excellent choices? That’s the question I asked in a 2014 Acura RLX review. The luxury sedan battles other premium choices in the high $40,000 to low $60,000 price range — it’s a crowded field, with everyone from Lexus and Infiniti to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, and Audi competing.
