2020 BMW 3-Series vs. 2020 Acura TLX


When it comes to the 2020 BMW 3-Series, you can expect to get stunningly good looks coupled with superb ride quality. The 2020 3-Series features a roomy cabin that makes this sporty sedan as functional as possible. In addition to being large, the cabin is also comfortable and well insulated from the outside.

The 2020 Acura TLX also offers a sporty exterior design with flared wheel arches giving it an aggressive stance. Inside the cabin, less than premium materials take away from the overall likability of the car. Let us compare these two sedans and see how they stack up against each other.

Design & Style

The 2020 BMW 3-Series has been retouched for 2020 and looks sportier than ever. The 2020 3-Series has a sporty stance and beautifully crafted front that ensures that this is a car that will turn heads anywhere that it goes. Inside the cabin, the instrument panel (and everything else) is well placed to ensure that all controls are easily within reach.

With the 2020 Acura TLX, the designers went with an understated cabin which is ok although not exactly luxurious. Space inside the cabin is also a problem with the backseat being a little squeezed. Acura might justify these compromises by arguing that it is cheaper than most of the alternatives but diminishing comfort and functionality is unlikely to go well with most car buyers.

Technology & Safety  

Considering tech and safety features, buyers of the 2020 BMW 3-Series will be pleased to know that they have a wide range of options. These include a forward collision warning system and much more. A touchscreen display that supports gesture control ensures that selecting infotainment options is safer than with most other cars in its category.

In the 2020 Acura TLX, you get two display screens which can be very confusing especially when trying to select infotainment options while driving. Not much else comes as standard and drivers have to dig deeper into their pockets to get other options.


Under the hood, the 2020 3-Series has a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 255 hp which delivers excellent performance. Ride quality is superb and the 2020 3-Series dispatches corners with ease. A well-tuned suspension ensures that most road imperfections are kept off the cabin.

In the 2020 Acura TLX, you get a four-cylinder engine that is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance is ok although not what exactly sporty. The transmission is also a bit sluggish and takes away from the overall ride quality.

The Bottom Line

If you are facing a choice between these two vehicles, you are better off going with the 2020 BMW 3-Series. This is because it offers a superior ride quality, more tech features, and more space in the cabin.
