February 25th, 2016 by

2016 Acura MDXDoes the 2016 BMW X5 price seem like it’s in line with other luxury crossovers on the market? We think that Chicagoland drivers know the Acura brand has a reputation for building vehicles that embrace both value and luxury, and if the BMW gives you a bit of sticker shock, we have a solution: the 2016 Acura MDX. Available now at a Chicagoland Acura Dealer near you, the MDX is both affordable and elegant.

Let’s see how the BMW compares to our Acura crossover to give you an idea of which one of these vehicles might be the better fit for you.

Find Savings in an Acura

Before we get into the features and amenities of the crossovers, let’s just start with the price:

  • The 2016 BMW X5 price starts at $57,000 for the base-level xDrive35i model.
  • The 2016 Acura MDX base model has an entry-level price of just $43,015 (MSRP).*

U.S. News & World Report just named the 2016 Acura MDX the Best Car for the Money in its class, too. This is just the beginning of the advantages for the Acura crossover.

Acura’s Amenity Advantages

You might expect a more expensive luxury crossover to come out ahead on features, and yet there is a wide range of amenities that are either unavailable on the BMW or require an upgrade. Here are just a few of the features that you’ll find on the MDX that aren’t on the BMW X5:

  • Steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters
  • Rear heating and air-conditioning controls
  • Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines
  • Leather-trimmed seating
  • Noise/sound cancellation
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Satellite radio

As if that’s not enough, the BMW only comes standard with five-person seating to the MDX’s seven-person seating. When BMW makes a third row of seating available, it tends to fill up the cargo space, only leaving room for kids in the back.

Test Drive an MDX

We hope we’ve made it clear that the MDX bests more than just the 2016 BMW X5 price, but in order for you to really see and feel how luxurious Acura’s crossover is, you should get behind the wheel and experience it firsthand. Visit a Chicagoland Acura Dealer location near you and ask to take the latest MDX for a test drive.
