Acura RDX: A Triumph of Performance and Luxury
2019 Acura RDX
2018 BMW X3
The BMW X3 and the Acura RDX both offer impressive comfort and turbocharged performance. But the RDX was extensively redesigned for 2019, earning it several big advantages. Its VTEC® Turbo 2.0-liter engine boasts 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, giving you more muscle than the X3. Torque vectoring, exclusive to Acura's available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), lets you channel that power for improved handling in almost any condition. Standard paddle shifters put control of all 10 gear ratios at your fingertips.
RDX also includes a long list of standard luxury amenities you’ll have to pay extra for on X3. Heated front sport seats with 12-way power adjustment keep front-row occupants warm. An ultra-wide panoramic moonroof is featured on all grades. Class-leading rear cargo space includes nearly two cubic feet of compartmented underfloor storage. And with more legroom and shoulder room than the BMW X3, RDX has plenty of space for everyone to stretch out.
