Acura TLXIf you’re shopping within the luxury market for your next dream car, you will be greatly rewarded by checking out the prime offerings of the Acura TLX. This high-end sedan brings the goods drivers crave, outshining various top rivals as it does so.

To illustrate this, we have performed a comparison of the 2017 Acura TLX vs. the 2017 BMW 3 Series 320i. Standard features found onboard this competitor fall far short of the TLX’s offerings, as you’re about to see.

Prime Standard Offerings

In comparing the standard amenities found onboard the Acura TLX with those offered in the BMW 3 Series 320i, consumers will quickly see that a variety of features that come standard for the TLX are not standard issue for the BMW 3 Series but are, in fact, either not available at all or are only available as optional upgrades at a higher price.

Included among these, the Acura TLX features standard two-driver memory settings for its locks, headlights, exterior mirrors, driver’s seat, and climate control system. The 3 Series 320i, in contrast, only offers driver memory features for the locks and headlights and only as an optional, extra-cost upgrade.

Premium features like a power moonroof, a HomeLink universal transceiver, a rearview camera, and a power driver’s seat also come standard onboard the TLX but are only optional upgrades for the BMW 3 Series 320i.

Front-seat lumbar support is also standard onboard the Acura TLX but is not available at all for the 3 Series 320i, and active sound control additionally comes standard for the TLX but is not available for the 3 Series 320i.

A power passenger seat and heated front seats also come standard for the Acura TLX, as do satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and LED headlights, but these are only optional upgrades for the BMW 3 Series 320i.
