Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura MDX than in the BMW X4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura MDX and the BMW X4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura MDX as you will with the BMW X4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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). The Acura MDX is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X4. 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 MDX and the BMW X4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much wider than the BMW X4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura MDX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW X4.

Handling
The Acura MDX has the same turning radius as the BMW X4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Acura MDX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the BMW X4.
