2018 BMW X5 Cockpit

If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line luxury SUV then you need look no further than the 2018 BMW X5. This gorgeous vehicle is packed with the performance, technology, and safety features to blow other automobiles of its class out of the water. And just to prove it, we’ll compare it to the 2018 Acura MDX throughout this article. If you want to see its greatness in person, just stop by Herrin-Gear BMW for a test drive at 1685 High Street in Jackson, MS.

Performance

From its base machinery outward, the 2018 X5 comes out ahead of the Acura MDX. Pop the hood to the BMW and you’ll find an exceptional 3.0L TwinPower 6-cylinder engine capable of delivering 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. The MDX on the other hand uses a comparatively measly 3.5L V6 engine that only produces upwards of 290 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque. Even more impressive, the X5’s standard trim still has a towing capacity1 of 6,603 lb., once again beating the standard MDX’s 3,500-lb. towing capability1 while using FWD. So the next time you want to tow a boat out towards the Ross R Barnett Reservoir, you’ll know what the right choice is for you. Even while providing far more power, the X5 manages to run on an 18/25/21 MPG city/hwy/combined2 fuel economy, nearly identical to the Acura’s 19/27/22 MPG city/hwy/combined2. In the most important performance features, the X5 comes out even or ahead.

Safety

The 2018 BMW X5 continues to prove itself when you compare the various safety features that each SUV is armed with. Take the headrests for instance. The X5 comes with standard Active Head Restraints, specially-designed headrests intended to protect the driver and front passengers from whiplash in the case of an accident. The MDX on the other hand has no whiplash protection. You’ll also find your X5 fully prepared for not just before and during an accident, but the aftermath. In the event of sudden collisions, the BMW’s impact sensor disconnects critical features, unlocks your doors, and turns on the hazards and interior lights. You even have a BMW Emergency SOS Request button for any moments where you might need assistance. The MDX does not have any comparable features.

Comfort

Even in terms of comfort the 2018 X5 continues to shine. Hop behind the wheel and enjoy a supple, comfortable driver’s seat with 16-way power front sport seats, which include 2-way power side bolsters and 4-way lumbar support and memory system to ensure that the feel of your throne is exactly as you want it to be. The Acura, on the other hand, has a comparatively modest 10-way Power Seat. You’ll be able to adjust it a bit, but it’s clear you won’t be able to reach the same customized comfort as in the BMW.

We think you’ll agree that when you compare the 2018 BMW X5 vs the 2018 Acura MDX in Jackson, MS, the BMW is the clear winner. Stop by Herrin-Gear BMW and see if this marvelous SUV continues to hold up to your high standards. We hope to see you soon!
