Compare the 2021 BMW X3 vs. Acura RDX

BMW of Mount Laurel is always happy to help. That’s why we’ve summarized the Acura vs. BMW differences here, so you can decide which model is best for your daily commute and weekend adventures out to Evesham Township. 

Acura vs. BMW X3: Engine Performance

The Acura RDX and BMW X3 basically have the same base engine, a 2.0 liter I-4, but that’s where the similarities end when comparing the Acura SUV vs. BMW SUV. As you climb up the BMW X3 trims, you’ll find the X3 M has 473 hp, and the Competition Package increases output to a whopping 503 horsepower! The X3 M has a 0-60 mph time of only 4.1 seconds, and it is part of what makes the BMW X3 M so fun to drive! The RDX doesn’t even come close to the performance level of what the high-end X3 models offer. Also, the BMW X3 comes standard with RWD, while the RDX only has FWD, and it can tow up to 4,400 pounds vs. only 1,500 pounds in the Acura!

Acura RDX vs. BMW X3: Fuel Efficiency

It’s one thing to create the Ultimate Driving Machine, but accomplishing that level of performance with solid MPG ratings is genuinely remarkable, and that’s exactly what you get from the BMW X3. When comparing the Acura vs. BMW, Cherry Hill drivers can expect 25 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway in the BMW SUV, vs. only 22/28 in the RDX.
