Our neighbors have good things to say about both Acura SUVs and BMW SUVs, but if you’re getting ready to compare Acura vs. BMW, you’re going to find that our model simply has more to offer for your St Paul adventures. Compare the 2020 Acura MDX vs. 2020 BMW X5 today, and then see the X5 for yourself at Motorwerks BMW.

Acura vs. BMW SUVs: Performance

Both of these SUVs have enough room for the whole family, but which model is going to be more fun to drive? It’s really no contest. Comparing the Acura MDX vs. BMW X5, you’ll see that the Ultimate Driving Machine® can practically drive circles around the MDX:

  • Starting Engines: The base engine in the X5 is a 3.0L turbocharged V6 with 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. The MDX, with just 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque as standard, pales in comparison.
  • Engine Options: The X5 driver has two additional engines to consider, a 456 hp turbocharged V8 and a 523-hp turbocharged V8. The MDX doesn’t offer any additional engines.
  • Drivetrain: Both of these models are offered with AWD, but only the X5 comes standard with rear-wheel drive. Compared to all-wheel drive, RWD offers a more performance-focused experience.

If you don’t think you need all that power, comparing the BMW X3 vs. X5 may help you save.

Acura vs. BMW SUVs: Capacities and Dimensions

The Acura MDX always comes standard with three rows, and for that reason, it’s just a little bit longer than the BMW X5. The latter is available with two or three rows, and offers slightly less cargo space, but it wins in other key areas that Minneapolis-area drivers consider:

  • Towing Capacity: The BMW X5 towing capacity can reach up to 7,200 pounds with proper equipment. The MDX can only tow up to 5,000 pounds.
  • Wheelbase: The BMW X5 has a wheelbase of 117.1 inches, making it much more stable than the MDX. The latter has a wheelbase of just 111 inches.
  • Fuel Tank Volume: The X5 gets better city fuel economy than the MDX, when we compare their starting engines. However, it’s also worth noting that the X5 has a larger fuel tank, with a volume of 21.9 gallons. The MDX has a 19.5-gallon fuel tank, so you’ll have to stop for gas more often.

Take a closer look at the BMW X5 interior if you want to explore the other features that set this model apart! There’s plenty to get excited about inside.
