2018 Acura MDX vs. 2018 BMW X5


Value & Efficiency

Luxury SUVs have a bad rap for being overly costly, but a comparison between the 2018 Acura MDX and the 2018 BMW X5 shows that’s not necessarily the case. The MDX has a starting MSRP of $44,200,* over $10,000 less than the X5’s MSRP of $56,950—and the discrepancy only gets wider as you start adding features. The MDX is also a better long-term investment, retaining 36% of its residual value after 60 months; the X5 only retains 28%. So when you’re ready to trade-in, you’ll be getting better returns for your MDX. The MDX will even save you more money at the pump: it gets an EPA-estimated 27 MPG highway,** while the X5 only gets 25.

Luxury Features

Of course luxury is an important factor when deciding between these two models—they’re luxury SUVs, after all. But even though the MDX costs less than the X5, it offers a number of standard amenities that will cost you extra on the X5, including:

  • Rear-Seat Climate Controls
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Leather Trimmed Seats
  • Satellite Radio
  • LED Headlights

And the MDX also comes standard with Noise/Sound Cancellation for a quieter, more peaceful drive—the X5 doesn’t offer this at all.
