2015 BMW X5 vs. 2015 Acura MDX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Acura MDX, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X5 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura MDX.

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). The BMW X5 is somewhat more expensive than the Acura MDX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X5 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Acura MDX.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 is a little narrower than the Acura MDX, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Acura MDX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Acura MDX.

Handling
The BMW X5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Acura MDX, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X5 has a little less horsepower than the Acura MDX.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 and the Acura MDX. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X5 as you will in the Acura MDX.

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