2017 BMW X3 vs 2017 Acura RDX in Fort Walton Beach, FL

The compact luxury crossover segment is filled with attractive options, and it may be hard to distinguish one from the other. To assist, we at BMW of Fort Walton Beach created the comparison of the 2017 BMW X3 vs 2017 Acura RDX in Fort Walton Beach, FL. In more ways than one, you can see how the X3 prevails against the RDX.

When it comes to performance, the 2017 X3 effortlessly takes the cake. It offers three engine options, whereas the RDX only comes equipped with one. The Acura RDX's standard powertrain is the 3.5L V6, which has an output of 279 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. The base engine in the X3 is the 2.0L 4-cylinder, which cranks out 240 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The next engine up is the 3.0L 6-cylinder powerhouse that’s capable of 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. What’s more, the BMW X3 even offers a diesel option worth 180 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque.

As we move on in this battle, we’ll take a look at what these vehicles have to offer inside. And, in terms of convenience, the RDX just can’t quite keep up with the X3. As optional, the BMW X3 boasts an available 20-way multi-contour driver’s seat to conform to your body perfectly. The RDX, on the other hand, only reaches a 10-way adjustable function for its driver’s seat. Furthermore, in this comparison of the 2017 BMW X3 vs 2017 Acura RDX in Fort Walton Beach, FL, we see that the X3 also comes equipped with a handy 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat, which allows for multiple interior configurations. The RDX, though, only offers a 60/40 split-folding function.

To enhance on this, the cargo space of both vehicles differ, meaning you won’t be able to bring along as much items in one than in the other. In the 2017 BMW X3, you’ll have 27.6 cubic ft. of trunk volume, while the Acura RDX only has 26.1 cubic ft. of cargo space1. Since both come equipped with a split-folding rear seat, you can optimize your space even more! Although, you’ll have more room to work with in the X3 with 63.3 cubic ft. of maximum cargo space, and only 61.3 cubic ft. of trunk room2 in the RDX. Access to this space is as easy as ever in the X3, thanks to the available Comfort Access liftgate, which automatically opens when you kick your foot under the rear bumper. This feature is not offered in the RDX.

We hope this battle of the 2017 BMW X3 vs 2017 Acura RDX in Fort Walton Beach, FL, helped you see which one is better equipped. Come on down to BMW of Fort Walton Beach to experience the winning X3 in person!
