Compare the 2020 Acura RDX vs. 2020 BMW X3 with Acura Plus Blainville

In the luxury compact SUV category, the competition is fierce as there are so many new models on the market, but anyone who wants to be behind the wheel of one of these SUVs should know that some models are more durable, reliable and high-performance than others. Comparison is a nice way to measure the forces at play.

Acura Plus Blainville is now renowned for the quality of its service, its in-depth knowledge of its products, and a team of experienced advisers and technicians with extensive expertise in the components of Acura vehicles. Its reputation on the North Shore of Montreal near Laval, Terrebonne and Saint-Jérôme is well established as it takes great care of its customers.

The 2020 Acura RDX or 2020 BMW X3?

First of all, in the early years of the RDX, it was said to be a more luxurious CR-V. In 2020, we no longer dare to make that comparison because it is so different and is in a class just behind Audi Q5. We can even say that they’re tied (85% and 86%) if we look at the prestigious 2020 “Le Guide de l’auto”.

In addition, the 2020 Acura RDX offers a new 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, making it both powerful and efficient, ready for the great adventure in Quebec, Canada and the United States. The BMW X3 XDrive 30i develops 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 RDX’s powertrain is mated to a super-efficient 10-speed automatic transmission, which reinforces the driving dynamics of this 5-door, 5-seat SUV and ensures flexibility and excellent all-wheel drive. The BMW X3 handles as well in corners as on more linear roads.

With a spacious and ultra-comfortable interior, drivers of a 2020 Acura RDX will benefit from the comfort they are looking for, as the RDX features ergonomic, adjustable, heated and reclining seats, in addition to providing plenty of storage space and ample legroom in the rear. The interior impresses with its design, choice of materials and quality of finish. The Japanese giant has managed to surpass itself by offering not only performance with a turbocharged engine but also elegance for getaways. The 2020 BMW X3 is comfortable and luxurious, but sometimes the ride is fairly too firm.

Even more interesting, the 2020 RDX is well equipped with automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning and lane departure warning in addition to adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance, as well as blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic monitoring, 19-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, panoramic sunroof, power liftgate, 10.25-inch multimedia display, auto-dimming rearview mirror, multi-angle rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features and much more. The same goes for the 2020 BMW X3, which also features a number of safety features and cutting-edge functionality.

The Winner: The 2020 RDX

If we had to find a winner, we would certainly have to look at the Acura RDX rather than BMW’s X3 for a few important reasons: when we see an 85% rating from the 2020 Car Guide for a vehicle model, we should take a moment to look at the comments, because experts in the field are not fond of giving such high marks to a vehicle in that 700+ page guide. The 2020 RDX gets that score as it is a premium luxury compact SUV that’s only going to be among the best in its class in 2020. Finally, the 2020 RDX delivers performance, power and user-friendliness with its remarkable handling, presentation and build quality, spacious and comfortable interior and excellent all-wheel drive.
