2015 Acura RLX vs. 2015 BMW 528 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the BMW 528. The BMW 528 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the BMW 528, as they get the same number of miles per 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 528. 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 RLX will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 528.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is a little wider than the BMW 528, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 528.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura RLX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 528.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the BMW 528, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 528.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the BMW 528. The Acura RLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 528.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 528.
