Sad but true; the only exterior feature we found worthy of a note on the new 2014 Acura RLX that made its world premiere at this week's Los Angeles Auto Show and which will be sold in Japan as the new Honda Legend, are its so-called "Jewel-Eye" LED headlamps.
The rest of the car in terms of styling might as well be a puffed up $50k Honda Accord or if you prefer, a longer and duller looking version of the Acura ILX, which itself, is a glorified Honda Civic under the sheetmetal.
So what's special about with these multi-faced LEDs? Well, there's lots of them and to be more specific, there are 5 light sources positioned behind each headlamp and each one feeds twin bulbs, which brings the total to 20 beams of light.
According to Acura, which even made a video dedicated to the LEDs, the new RLX's headlamps afford "a modern and distinctive appearance while providing outstanding light distribution and improved down-the-road illumination".
Feel free to enlighten yourself about the "Jewel Eye" LED headlights in the video that follows.
