2019 Acura RDX vs BMW X3: more space and more power

Published on July 31 2018

With its new 2019 Acura RDX, Acura is surprising many industry experts. More powerful, more efficient, better equipped and even more spacious, the RDX is able to compete with the very best in the luxury compact SUV segment including the popular BMW X3.

Let's be clear, the X3 remains an excellent SUV. That being said, the new RDX offers its owners a more powerful engine and more cargo space for less money. It certainly deserves a test drive. Let’s take a closer look.

A 272 horsepower engine for the 2019 Acura RDX

The Acura RDX has been completely redesigned this year and now offers a turbo engine. Yes, the RDX has has gone back to turbocharging, and that allows it to offer truly impressive performance that is also quite efficient. To begin, the four-cylinder in question offers 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, enough torque to reach 100 km/h in less than 6.0 seconds.

A brand new 10-speed automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels. By comparison, the BMW X3 is also equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but its power is only 248 horsepower while its torque is just 258 lb-ft of torque.

You will have guessed that it is very difficult for the X3 to follow an RDX on the road. The Acura also gets many improvements to the suspension and chassis that make it just as dynamic as the BMW, even a little more sometimes.

Finally, the new RDX offers more than 800 liters of cargo space. Compared to the 550 liters of the X3, it is very difficult to choose the BMW when you want a spacious SUV.

With the 2019 Acura RDX, we get a very, very luxurious SUV and even more performance and versatility. For more information, come and meet us today at Camco Acura!
