2019 BMW X3 vs. 2019 Acura RDX


The 2019 BMW X3 is a well-rounded SUV with impeccable performance and very few flaws. On the other hand, Acura RDX is loaded with technology, but not as fun to drive, as BMW X3. Let us compare these two models to understand which one is a better buy.

Design & Style

The Acura RDX seats 5, including the driver. The front seats are comfortable, but the same cannot be said about the back seats. It looks quite impressive with its interior having good use of premium materials, however some reviewers feel it could have been much better. There is not much cargo space to be content with.

The 2019 BMW X3 can seat up to 5 people across two rows with the front one delivering ample support. The back seats are rated high as well, as they provide plenty of space to stretch out. The rear seats rate highly as well; they provide plenty of room for two adults or three children. You will notice plenty of high-grade materials in the cabin, with the overall design giving you that luxury feel.

Technology & Safety

Standard technology features in the 2019 Acura RDX including an AcuraLink infotainment system, satellite radio, 9-speaker audio system, two USB ports, Bluetooth and panoramic moonroof. The system uses a True Touchpad Interface, and it can take some to understand the settings. Standard safety features include a rearview camera and AcuraWatch, which comes with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

The 2019 BMW X3 comes standard with an iDrive infotainment system, along with 12-speaker audio system, USB port and Bluetooth.

One of the most crucial factors to consider in a vehicle is its performance. Speaking of which, the 2019 Acura RDX is powered by turbo-4 engine that puts out 272 HP. Although it provides sufficient pump, the fuel efficiency is on the lower side. With the 2019 BMW X3, you have two options which include the base turbo-4 engine and the 335-HP turbo-six engine that accelerates the vehicle smoothly from a stop. In comparison to other rivals, it offers a better fuel economy ratimg.
