Coming off a complete redesign for 2013, the second model year the second-generation Acura RDX has received a few tweaks to its equipment packaging and a slight increase in pricing for 2014. With all models receiving a price hike of $200, the 2014 RDX will now have a base price of $34,520 (*not including $895 for destination).

New for the 2014 RDX, Acura has included even more technology to the standard models, including a push-button starter, rear-view camera and an updated audio system that delivers Pandora Internet radio, SMS text messaging and Active Noise Control. Buyers will still be able to add all-wheel drive and the optional Technology Package. Scroll down for a press release breaking down more features of the 2014 RDX and complete model pricing.

UPDATE: Because of some confusing wording in Acura's press release, we were mistaken when reporting that the RDX received any new equipment or features for 2014. The only bit of newness is a new color called Kona Coffee and the higher price.

      They should also add tinted windshield, so the embarrassed owners can hide their faces.

      Overrated, overpriced, and underwhelming....the new Honda motto.

      $35k-$40k is great a value. I don't see why people should complain so much. It's not the most luxurious or boastful of CUVs, but unlike others in this segment, it's not ridiculously expensive. A BMW X1, X3, or Mercedes GLK might offer a little more plush, but they'll nickel and dime you out the wazoo for every little damn thing you want.

        Agreed, the piece of garbage Ford Escape can cost close to 40K now, same for the awful Santa Fe.

      $35,000 SUV without a power tailgate and no fog lights! Very far from premium.....

          At least the GLK and X3 aren't based off of a CR-V.

          Seeing that the CRV is currently a best seller, I don't think that's a bad thing, but it doesn't really have a lot in common with the CRV. And the Q5 is based off the Tiguan.

      Ayone that doesn\'t think that this is a good value, even if boring, is kidding themselves. Try specing out an X3, Q5, RX350 or GLK350 with something equivalent to what Acura offers (i.e. Navi, ELS Audio, etc.) for under 40K. You will be at 50K (except maybe Q5 at around 47K with Premium Plus + MMI + B&O Audio). Plus you get Honda reliability. As someone who may be in the market for a luxury CUV in the next year or two, I would love to get a Q5 or X3, but I doubt my wife would like the price difference from the RDX. And yes, even an Escape can now tick up over 35K easily enough (though it may come with even better tech, I\'m pretty sure the RDX is still signficantly more luxurious), and a sante fe sport over 33K. Keep that price in line Acura, and I think you\'ll keep selling a boatload of these...now if they could just work on the styling...

      The RDX just keeps getting better and better. Rearview camera is a must, smart move.

        err, rear-view camera has been standard on RDX for a long time. This is pure PR

      Seems like a lot of money for what's basically a Honda CRV with some additional badges and trim pieces.
