Diving into the luxury vehicle market is a huge deal for most people, and finding the perfect driving companion for the long haul can be a bit stressful. With the dozens of options available, it might seem like a difficult task zoning in on the right option for you. We at BMW of Schererville are here to lighten the load by introducing to you the 2018 BMW X5, which is ready to impress on a test drive. With the fantastic performance specs and interior technology, the choice is a no-brainer. In fact, we have constructed a comparison between the aforementioned vehicle and the 2018 Acura MDX to give you a better idea as to how the X5 fares against similar vehicles in its class. Once you see what makes this ride so special, pay us a visit during our vast business hours!

Performance

Let’s get this head-to-head battle started by peering beneath the hoods of each of these midsize SUVs to get a better idea as to how they fare on everyday commutes and errand runs. Coming standard on the BMW X5 is the 3.0L TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine ready to pounce on the competition. This powerhouse disperses an almighty 302 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque to give you that vigor you crave. When you choose the Acura MDX, you will have a 3.5L V6 powertrain that climbs to a measly 290 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque. It doesn’t end there for the X5! The engineers at BMW have also offered up a 4.4L V8 powertrain to take things up a level by dispersing 445 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. Unfortunately, the MDX has no further choices. 

Cabin

When it comes to finding the ride that is perfect for you and your crew, you need something that provides supreme comfort paired with the latest and greatest technology to keep everyone entertained. That is no exception to the 2018 BMW X5, as this vehicle implements standard SensaTec upholstery. These seats are made with a spill and stain-resistant material that will make messes easier to clean, which cannot be found in the MDX. You and your trusty copilot will be able to achieve maximum comfort once you slip into the standard 14-way power front seats in the X5. On the other hand, when you choose the MDX, you will be stuck with the standard 10 way power-adjustable driver’s seat and an 8-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat. Climb inside the 2018 X5 and let your favorite playlists roar to life with the help of the optional 16-speaker Harmon Kardon® Surround Sound System which will immerse you in a live music experience time after time. When you choose the highest trim of the MDX the best you can get is 12 speakers. 

After this quick overview between the 2018 BMW X5 vs 2018 Acura MDX near Valparaiso, IN, the champion is clear. Come try out the BMW as soon as today once you swing by BMW of Schererville for a test drive. We are located at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN!

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!!
