After a quick comparison, you’d be forgiven for wondering how the 2018 BMW X5 can be considered a rival to the 2017 Acura MDX. Whether you’re checking out safety features or exploring interior flexibility, it’s immediately obvious that the Acura MDX is leaps and bounds ahead of the BMW. Let’s take a closer look.
The 2017 Acura MDX carries a starting price of $44,050,* while the 2018 BMW X5 demands a starting price of $56,600. You’d imagine BMW would justify the higher price tag by including plenty of features as standard, but you’ll be disappointed upon closer inspection.
Among other things, you’ll find that the following features come standard with the new MDX but not with the new X5:
Some might be attracted to the 2018 BMW X5 because it can take up to five passengers, but it might be an issue from growing families. The issue is that many SUVs only offer 5-passenger seating, but the MDX is not among them. The new MDX includes three rows of seating as standard, and it even offers the option of second-row captain’s chairs in place of the second-row bench seat for added comfort and space.
And the BMW X5 is equally underwhelming when you turn to cargo space — even with all seats folded down, there’s only up to 76.7 cubic feet of cargo space. With the Acura MDX, that figure rises to 90.9 cubic feet.
It’s clear the 2017 Acura MDX considers the safety of you and your passengers to be of paramount importance, so the following high-end driver assistance technologies are included with every model:
Such features represent the peace of mind you deserve — but none come standard with the 2018 BMW X5.
