2016 Acura TLXThe 2016 BMW 3 Series price might be in line with some popular luxury models, but is it the best option for Michigan drivers? We put the BMW 320i up against the 2016 Acura TLX to see which one has the greatest value for Michigan and Metro Detroit drivers, and that means starting with the price first.

The 2016 BMW 320i Sedan is priced at $33,150 to the $31,695 (MSRP)* of the base-level 2016 Acura TLX with 4-cylinder engine and 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Not only does the TLX carry a lower price, it has more to offer.

Advantages of the TLX

The price is just the first strength of the TLX, and it has a long list of advantages that BMW would require drivers to upgrade for (if they are available at all on the BMW 3 Series), including:

  • Driver-side memory settings for climate control, seating, mirrors, and more
  • One-touch power moonroof
  • Universal garage door controller
  • Multi-angle rearview camera system
  • Heated front seating
  • Satellite radio
  • Noise/sound cancellation
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights

We aren’t quite sure where the added cost of the BMW goes, but it certainly doesn’t look like it goes into the features. And both of these cars have powerful yet fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engines.

Last but certainly not least is the warranty coverage. When investing in a luxury sedan, it’s important to have the peace of mind that comes with an extensive warranty, and Acura delivers.

  • The 2016 Acura TLX 8-Spd DCT has a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty to help protect against unexpected repair costs to the most expensive elements of your vehicle.
  • The 2016 BMW 3 Series price isn’t protected for nearly as long as the TLX; BMW only gives drivers a powertrain warranty of 48 months or 50,000 miles.

Test Drive a TLX
