2014 Acura TL vs. 2015 BMW 328 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura TL offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 328 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TL, drivers may find the BMW 328 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the BMW 328, 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). Whether you pick the Acura TL or the BMW 328, 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. The Acura TL and the BMW 328 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TL is much wider than the BMW 328, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura TL, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 328.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura TL and the BMW 328 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Acura TL has a larger turning radius than the BMW 328, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TL is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 328.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the BMW 328. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TL as you will in the BMW 328.

Warranty
The Acura TL comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 328.
