2019 Acura RDX vs. 2018 BMW X3


Few luxury SUVs can stand up to the standard of quality set by the 2019 Acura RDX and 2018 BMW X3, so if that’s what you’re looking for, they’re probably at the top of your list. So how do you choose between them? We’ve pitted them head to head in a variety of areas to find out which is the better choice for Utah County drivers. Here’s how it all came out!

Value & Security

Right off the bat, the 2019 Acura RDX is significantly more affordable than the 2018 BMW X3. It has a starting MSRP of $36,000,* over $6,000 less than the BMW X3’s starting MSRP of $42,650, and that gap only gets wider with the pricier trims and optional equipment. And to prove that affordable pricing doesn’t equal being cheaply made, the RDX has a standard Powertrain Warranty of 72 months/70,000 miles, ensuring that your SUV is taken care of long after you leave the lot. The X3’s Powertrain Warranty is only good for 48 months/50,000 miles.


Comfort & Convenience

Even though it costs less, the 2019 Acura RDX still offers a wide range of standard features that would cost you extra on the 2018 BMW X3, including:

  • Power Moonroof
  • Front Heated Seats
  • Satellite Radio

Luxuries like these are important in a luxury SUV, so why go with the option that gives you less?
