2014 Acura RLX Pricing Announced, Ranges From $49,345 To $61,345

When it goes on sale on March 15, the 2014 Acura RLX luxury sedan will cost $49,345 after an $895 destination charge. That represents a slight premium compared to the car’s predecessor, the 2012 Acura RL, which started at $49,095.

The prices revealed apply only to the standard Acura RLX, powered by a 310-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine. Pricing for the all-wheel-drive hybrid model, which launches in the second half of 2013, will be announced later this year.

The entry price affords an Acura RLX with 18-inch alloy wheels, a ten-speaker sound system, a six-speed automatic transmission, and Acura’s new Precision All-Wheel Steer suspension. The standard equipment list extends to LED headlights, push-button start, Bluetooth, a power moonroof, automatic headlights, and heated power front seats.

The next step up is the RLX with Navigation, at $51,845, which adds an eight-inch touchscreen navigation system with voice control. Moving up to the $55,345 RLX with Technology Package adds 19-inch wheels, a 14-speaker sound system, Milano leather seats, acoustically insulated glass, automatic wipers, and power-folding mirrors.

The $57,845 RLX with Krell Audio Package adds a high-end stereo by the eponymous company, plus a power rear-window sunshade. The top-spec 2014 Acura RLX with Advance Package costs $61,345, and builds on all other models with parking sensors, heated rear seats, auto-dimming mirrors, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and the Collision Mitigation Braking System.

How does the 2014 Acura RLX stack up pricing-wise against the competition? The 2013 Audi A6 starts at $43,095 (after destination) with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine and front-wheel drive; upgrading to a 310-hp supercharged V-6 bumps the price to $51,295. The 2012 BMW 528i starts at $47,795 with a 240-hp turbo-four engine, while the 535i and its 300-hp turbocharged inline-six requires $53,395. The 2013 Lexus GS350 is $48,145 and has a 3.5-liter V-6 with 306 hp.
