Acura RLX Climate ControlNobody wants to have regrets when they drive home a new luxury sedan, so if you’re a Chicagoland driver looking at the 2016 BMW 5 Series 528i standard features, we want you to think twice. The 2016 Acura RLX is available now at Chicagoland Acura Dealers and comes standard with Acura’s Technology Package, which is just one of the many advantages it has over the 528i.

Let’s take a closer look at these two luxury sedans so you can drive home a car that puts a smile on your face.

Connectivity and Comfort Features

One of the biggest advantages of the 2016 Acura RLX is that it gives you a level of connectivity and entertainment features that let you stay synced up with your phone and have an immersive driving soundtrack on the road. Standard comfort features make it easier to bear the harsh Chicago winters, too.

Each of the following amenities is found on every 2016 RLX but is either unavailable among the 2016 BMW 5 Series 528i standard features or requires significant upgrades:

  • Heated front seating keeps you and a front passenger warm, even when the mercury dips well below zero.
  • Leather-trimmed seating gives the RLX the elegant, luxurious feel that drivers expect from a modern luxury sedan.
  • Navigation with a built-in hard drive ensures you’re always on the fastest route to your destination and brings your music along for the ride.
  • Satellite radio combines with noise/sound cancellation to bring audiophile-grade accuracy to the driving soundtrack piping through the ELS premium audio system.

As if these features weren’t enough, the 2016 Acura RLX also has more front and rear legroom than the 2016 BMW 528i, giving you and your passengers plenty of space.

Safety Features

Comfort and technology are just two parts to the well-crafted luxury sedan; a modern vehicle like the 2016 Acura RLX should also offer state-of-the-art safety features. Each of these safety features is found on the RLX but not on the 528i:

  • Adaptive cruise control keeps an eye on the vehicles around the RLX and adjusts the vehicle’s cruising speed automatically to keep with the flow of traffic.
  • A multi-angle rearview camera gives the RLX driver up to three different views when backing up, while the 528i requires an upgrade for even a single-view camera.
  • LED headlights not only give the RLX a unique look, they help deliver a brighter and whiter beam to light up the road ahead.
  • The accident avoidance system alerts the driver to the possibility of a collision using audio and visual warnings, going so far as to apply the brakes to slow or even stop the RLX in order to avoid an accident.

These are just a few of the safety features that set the RLX apart from the 528i.
