The Acura RDX offers a driving experience unmatched by many other sedans, with a turbocharged 272 horsepower VTEC® engine, made from lightweight aluminum alloy and generating an impressive 280 pound-feet of torque. Much of this torque kicks in upon accelerating, so you feel the responsiveness of this powertrain almost immediately as you pull out of the driveway. Many people recognize BMW models for their racecar-style performance thrills, but the X3 seems to stand out as an exception. The base engine of this luxury crossover falls short in overall power output, generating 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. As you drive the X3, you also notice a sharp drop in acceleration responsiveness.


In addition to its outstanding performance, the Acura RDX presents a tech-lover's paradise with its driver-friendly cabin. Each trim of the Acura RDX features the True Touchpad Interface™, which operates like the mouse on your laptop and enables you to scroll between applications seamlessly without taking your eye off of the road. this feature comes wholly unavailable on the BMW X3.
