Does the 2016 BMW 3 Have the Warranty You Need?

February 3rd, 2016 by

Acura TLX 3.5 EngineIf you’re looking for a luxury car in the Chicagoland area, you’re probably thinking about getting a 2016 BMW 3. But does it come with a warranty that’s right for you? The 2016 Acura TLX has a better powertrain warranty, but there are plenty of other advantages to this great car. Chicagoland Acura Dealers bring you this comparison sheet to help you make the right choice.

Pricing and Finance

The 2016 Acura TLX has a base MSRP of just $31,695.* That’s over $1,500 less than the similar trim level of the 2016 BMW 3, which has a base price of $33,150. When you add up all of the options you can choose on either vehicle, such as a driver assistance package with driver awareness aids, heated front seats, or satellite radio, the price gap is even more notable.


The 2016 Acura TLX and the 2016 BMW 3 both have a basic warranty that lasts for 48 months, or four years. The basic warranty lasts for 50,000 miles on each.

However, it’s the powertrain warranty where Acura shows what it’s made of. The 2016 Acura TLX comes with a powertrain warranty that lasts for 72 months, which is an impressive six years, or for 70,000 miles! This is in contrast to the 2016 BMW powertrain warranty, which only lasts for 48 months and 50,000 miles. That’s the same length as the basic warranty. Only Acura gives you two extra years of warranty on your powertrain.

Other Advantages

The 2016 Acura TLX has even more advantages over the 2016 BMW 3. On the Acura, you’ll get a standard rearview camera, which is a crucial safety feature on many vehicles. You’ll also get a standard power moonroof to let in the light and air, as well as a standard front power driver’s seat with standard heating. Satellite radio comes standard, as does specialized noise and sound cancellation in the cabin. Outside, standard LED headlights illuminate the road ahead.
