2014 BMW X3 vs. 2014 Acura RDX
Are You Searching for a 2014 BMW X3 Around Metro Detroit?
If you’re shopping for a luxury crossover in the Metro Detroit area, the 2014 BMW X3 might be a tempting choice. BMW’s name alone is synonymous with luxury, and the X3 comes with many attractive features:
- An efficient and powerful 4-cylinder engine
- BMW’s 48-month/50,000-mile powertrain warranty
- Upgradable features like heated seating and leather trim
The luxury market isn’t short on choices, though, and while the BMW X3 may be interesting to some drivers, the 2014 Acura RDX provides an affordable and powerful alternative. Redesigned for the modern driver, the RDX manages to come out ahead of the BMW at nearly every important feature while offering a lower price too.
The BMW X3’s price fits with a luxury vehicle—it starts at $39,800 (MSRP)—while the RDX is priced at $34,520 (MSRP).* The BMW engine offers up 240 hp with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway fuel economy. Of course, that’s the same highway fuel efficiency as the RDX, which also gets a full 273 hp out of its 3.5L V6 engine.
A superior engine, a lower price, and Acura gives drivers a better warranty too, with a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty to the X3’s 48-month/50,000-mile warranty.
