2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 BMW 328d Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 328d than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 328d will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX.

Convenience
The BMW 328d requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura TSX, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Acura TSX is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 328d. 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 TSX will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 328d.

Dimensions
The Acura TSX is a little wider than the BMW 328d, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Acura TSX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 328d.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the BMW 328d, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has about the same turning radius as the BMW 328d, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the BMW 328d. The Acura TSX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 328d.

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