2016 MDX
Chicagoland drivers shopping for a new luxury crossover, if you have had your eyes on the 2015 BMW X5 MSRP, we want you to see what the 2016 Acura MDX has to offer. Not only does the MDX have a lower price than the X5, Acura offers a superior selection of standard features, a more comprehensive warranty, and a much higher ALG residual value.`

Pricing and Value

Not only does the 2015 BMW X5 MSRP put it well out of the range of many drivers’ budgets, it doesn’t really hold onto its value well, according to the value experts at ALG:

  • The 2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i is priced at $56,200 (MSRP) and features a residual value of 51% of its initial value at 36 months and only 36% at 60 months.
  • The 2016 Acura MDX, on the other hand, is priced at $42,865 (MSRP)* and has ALG residual value ratings of 62% at 36 months and 35% at 60 months.

The MDX is clearly more affordable in the short term and the ALG residual value places it as a smart long-term investment as well. We think that one of the key advantages of the Acura crossover that accounts for that improved value can be found in its features.

Acura Gives Drivers More Features

While there are many amenities that set the MDX apart from the BMW X5, these are some of the most popular ones that are standard on Acura’s crossover and either require an upgrade or are unavailable on the BMW:

  • Rear climate controls
  • Rearview camera
  • Leather-trimmed seating
  • Third-row split bench seat
  • LED headlights
  • Paddle shifters

As if that’s not enough, the 2016 Acura MDX features a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty while the BMW is only covered under a 48-month/50,000-mile powertrain warranty.
