Much-anticipated information on the 2014 Acura RLX was recently revealed by the Japanese automaker, as Acura announced details on the RLX’s trims, price points and engines. As confirmed earlier, the five RLX trims will be out in the market in March.
The base 2014 Acura RLX will be priced at $49,345, with $895 destination fee included, and will be powered by a direct-injection V6 engine that can produce 310 horsepower and 272 lb/ft. of torque. This engine will be paired up with a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Inside the base RLX, users will find an 8-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth and streaming audio, a 7-inch secondary touchscreen, a 10-speaker sound system, tri-zone climate control and hands-free keyless trunk and front door access. Other standard features on the Acura RLX include the Precision All-Wheel Steer System, which would base rear wheel toe angles on steering and braking and 18-inch wheels with noise reduction.
The RLX with Navigation is slightly more expensive at $51,845 and comes with a few additional features, namely navigation and voice recognition, a color display for the infotainment system, and several Internet applications found on the new AcuraLink system. The intermediate trim is the RLX with Technology, which features slightly larger 19-inch noise-reducing wheels, a 14-speaker audio system, blind spot monitoring, noise-reducing acoustic glass, premium leather and hands-free keyless entry for the trunk and all doors. This option will set buyers back by $55,345.
The upper-scale trims are the $57,845 RLX with Krell Audio and the $61,345 RLX with Advance. The former trim is distinguished by a 14-speaker Krell audio system, but comes with a few other extras, such as rear door sunshades and a power rear window sunshade. The latter trim will come with additional safety features such as Collision Mitigation Braking and Lane Keeping Assist systems, plus adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors and auto-dimming side view mirrors, among other features.
