2017 Acura MDX vs. 2016 BMW X4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura MDX than in the BMW X4. The BMW X4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura MDX as you will with the BMW X4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura MDX or the BMW X4, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Acura MDX will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW X4.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much wider than the BMW X4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura MDX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW X4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Acura MDX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X4.

Handling
The Acura MDX has the same turning radius as the BMW X4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Acura MDX is clearly the choice over the BMW X4 for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little less horsepower than the BMW X4.

Utility
The Acura MDX offers greater seating capacity than the BMW X4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Acura MDX, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X4.

Warranty
The Acura MDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X4.
