2013 Acura ZDX vs. 2014 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X5 than in the Acura ZDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura ZDX and the BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura ZDX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 ZDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura ZDX and the BMW X5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ZDX is much wider than the BMW X5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Acura ZDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X5.

Drivetrain
The Acura ZDX has much lower torque than the BMW X5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura ZDX has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Acura ZDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura ZDX has a little more horsepower than the BMW X5.

Utility
The Acura ZDX has less seating than the BMW X5, making the BMW X5 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura ZDX has less cargo space than the BMW X5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura ZDX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X5.
