2017 BMW X3 35i vs Acura MDX AWD near Merrillville, IN

Don’t hesitate to come on down to BMW of Schererville to see the one-of-a-kind 2017 BMW X3 35i in action. This luxury crossover SUV has the power that you crave, the efficiency you need, and the safety features to boost your confidence on the road. We are so confident in this vehicle that we have decided to compare it to the Acura MDX AWD, which is a stiff competitor of the X3 35i. After reading this comparison, you’ll realize that the Acura MDX never stood a chance.

We know you’re curious about what lies beneath the hood of these luxury SUVs, so that is where our competition will begin. You’ll find a standard 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine that achieves 300 horsepower in the BMW X3 35i. Even though the Acura MDX AWD boasts a larger 3.5L V6 powertrain, it only manages to generate a less-than-exciting 290 horsepower. What’s more, you may have to stick close to a gas station at all times, since it only provides you with a rating of 18 MPG city1. You won’t feel this way while driving the X3 35i because its engine offers you a 19 MPG city2 fuel economy.

Every car ride along Highway 30 wouldn’t be the same without your favorite tunes. Fortunately, the 2017 X3 35i makes your music experience thrilling with its standard 16-speaker Harmon Kardon® audio system. It will surround you and your passengers in concert-quality sound, making you feel like you’re seeing your favorite band or artist live! The MDX simply can’t keep up, as is evident by its standard Acura Premium Audio System, which only comes equipped with eight speakers. Even if you spend the extra cash to get its available ELS Studio®3 Premium Audio System, you’ll only receive two additional speakers, which still does not come close to what the X3 35i has to offer. If you’re someone who likes to sing along to almost every song on the radio, then the BMW X3 is the perfect vehicle for you!

While both of these luxury SUVs are almost equal when it comes to the driver-assist features, the X3 35i has a couple of available features that the Acura MDX AWD simply does not offer. The optional Head-Up Display puts important vehicle information right on your windshield. That way, it shows up in your direct line of sight and you don’t have to take your eyes away from the road ahead. Another helpful feature is available Speed Limit Info. If driving through unfamiliar towns, this function will inform you of speed limit signs in the area and display it on your windshield. You can always be prepared, even on foreign roads!

This 2017 BMW 35i vs Acura MDX AWD near Merriville, IN, comparison clearly demonstrates the X3 35i’s superiority over the MDX. If you want to learn more about this exceptional luxury crossover SUV, contact your local BMW dealership, BMW of Schererville, at 800-860-3545.

I can’t stress how great this dealership was during my most recent visit. From my initial call to set the appointment to dropping off the loaner the process was seamless. Nick, (my consultant) was absolutely wonderful, he kept me updated throughout the entire process, and worked diligently with my warranty company to get my claim approved. Ultimate driving machine, and an awesome team to service them! Thanks Nick and team!!

The service here is AWESOME!! Nick is the best! We were driving from Chicago through Indiana on way to Ohio in September. Hit huge pothole and blew out 2 tires (thank goodness for run flats). Luckily, we were close to this dealership. Waited at service door for Saturday opening and Nick was only service person there due to floods. He nicely and efficiently assisted us and got our two tires installed quickly. Done in 43 minutes! We were so relieved and thankful. Great service does exist!!!

Nick, the service advisor, explained the repairs to me so I understood them. The wait was not very long. My vehicle was presented to me completely repaired and clean. Nick always treats me nice and lets me know how repairs are progressing. I always try to see him when I bring my vehicle in.

Our overall sales experience was positive. I have pretty high standards for larger purchases especially with vehicles and would consider myself a fairly difficult customer to deal with. The team was very patient and we were able to put together a very reasonable lease deal. We left the dealership feeling very good about our decision which wouldn’t have been possible without the high value they clearly place on the sales experience.

BMW of Schererville have awesome, friendly, and kind people working there. They helped me with the car I liked and I got it financed with very low APR. BMW of Schererville fixed everything that was wrong with the car and still provided me with the fantastic deal. We bought 2013 bmw 328xi & 528xi and the cars work and drive great. Amanda was the salesperson that helped us a lot. Chris helped us with giving a great deal on the cars. Katherine was the finance manager and she made sure we got good deal with the cars. Strongly recommend BMW of Schererville.

Yesterday, I purchased my 5th BMW from this location. Chris Hardaway is truly the consummate Client Advisor! I had the most amazing experience believe it or not. He sent William, BMW Genius to pick me up from my home in Chicago. Once I arrived at the dealership, Chris was at the entrance to greet me. The auto purchasing process was yet again very smooth and swift, which I am told (by others) can be stressful. Everyone I interacted with was very pleasant. I cannot remember a time when everyone I met smiled and stopped to converse. The personal touch makes a world of difference. Well done. Until my return... Thank you Chris H. William, Daniel, Glenn and Sven! Monte W.

Good Day BMW of Schererville, I wanted to take this time to Thank You for the outstanding service a couple weeks ago when I stopped in to have my tires rotated & the alloy repaired. My service agent was Stephanie and she greeted & treated me with respect & kindness. I look forward to my next visit. Sorry it took me awhile to respond but I was on Holidays, didn’t have the time.
