With so many options out there, deciding which car to buy can be pretty overwhelming. To make your choice a little easier, we at McGrath Acura have decided to compare the 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 BMW 3 Series near Chicago, IL, side by side. After a closer look, you will see why the Acura TLX outdoes the competition.

Performance is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to luxury vehicles. Although both the 2017 Acura TLX and 2017 BMW 3 series manage a respectable 28 MPG combined1, the TLX has the overall advantage in a few key areas. First of all, the Acura boasts a 17.2-gallon fuel tank capacity so you can spend less time at the pump. The BMW’s 15.8 gallons of gas storage just doesn’t measure up. With a highway cruising range of 489.8 miles, the 3 series tries to catch up but is no match for the TLX’s 533.2-mile highway cruising range. Finally, the Acura’s standard 2.4L inline 4-cylinder powertrain churns out a massive 206 horsepower. The BMW is left in the dust, since its standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine only produces 180 horsepower.

If you plan to spend any significant amount of time in your vehicle, space is a must-have. The Acura TLX takes the cake in this category as well, with its commodious cabin. You will have plenty of room to spread out, with 42.6 inches of front legroom and 57.5 inches of front shoulder room afforded by the TLX. BMW 3 Series’ drivers will feel a little cramped, with a mere 42 inches of front legroom and 55.1 inches of front shoulder room at their disposal. Also, the 3 series lacks a storage compartment in the front armrest, a standard feature in the TLX. In this matchup of the 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 BMW 3 Series, the Acura TLX pulls ahead once more.

When it comes to comfort, the 2017 Acura TLX provides the premium seating options that are vital to keeping you and your passengers satisfied the whole ride through. As the driver, you will delight in standard heated front seats, in addition to a standard power moonroof. The 2017 BMW 3 Series has less to enjoy, with optional heated front seats and the choice to have a power moonroof put in. While the 3 Series’ front seat passengers can utilize an optional 2-way power adjustable seat, the TLX front seat passengers will be able to relish in its standard 4-way power adjustable seat.

Comfortable amenities, abounding space, and top-notch performance secure the first-place position for the TLX in this duel between the 2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 BMW 3 Series near Chicago, IL. Take the 2017 Acura TLX for a test drive as soon as today and learn more about this intriguing luxury sedan. Here at McGrath Acura, we want nothing more than to see you behind the wheel of your dream car. Give us a call at 888-314-9314 to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly associates. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Testimonials

Acura ILX w/ Rashad

CARS
October 17, 2017

We had a very pleasant experience buying our new Acura with Rashad. We spoke via email before the appointment so we can communicate our criteria, and by the time we came in we had it narrowed down enough that we could move through the process pretty quickly. For Rashad???s part, he was very professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Our only issue with the overall experience was the wait time for seeing the finance guy was 2 hours on a Monday night. Despite this one issue, we would highly recommend McGrath and especially Rashad for those who are considering Acura.

Responsive and helpful, not pushy

We were initially in the market for a used vehicle and worked with Noonya Taroyan to try and find one. She was very patient as we waited for the right car to become available and also contacted us when one was coming in or when she thought one might be. We subsequently decided to lease a new vehicle and Noonya was once again very informative and helpful in our evaluation process and with understanding the lease details. Never once did we feel that Noonya was just looking to "make a sale". Would highly recommend working with her.

I am driving my 4th vehicle from McGrath Acura over approximately 8-9 years. . Noonya is wonderful and definitely played a big part in my last two lease decisions. I'm not sure I would have gotten a new car either time, if not for her. I have relocated, from the immediate vicinity of the dealership and still chose to deal with McGrath, rather than a closer dealer. While I was settling the paperwork with Djay, Noonya transferred my belongings, from the old to new vehicle, while Ian programmed all the settings, he & I had previously discussed. Noonya followed up with me almost immediately, after I leased my car, to see if I had any questions or concerns. On top of the great service received from Noonya, Djay, Elson and Ian, the cars are great and extremely reliable. I also can speak highly of the service department and people. Highly recommend McGrath Acura of Morton Grove.

Noonya was excellent and very patient with us.

Noonya was very helpful and patient with us. She made the process very easy. Thanks to Noonya and Elson we were able to buy a car from them. If it was not for Noonya and Elson, I wouldn't buy a car. Noonya was very knowledgeable and kind, she didn't pressure us at all. The deal almost didn't go through because Luke the finance had the numbers wrong and had my name wrong on all of the papers and when I asked him about it, he got agitated and didn't want to help at all. If it wasn't for Elson and Djay, I would have walked out the dealer ship with out buying the car. It is a shame that one person could have ruin the hard work of Noonya and Elson. Thank God that McGrath have a good management team which took care of the situation immediately and helped secure the deal instead of losing it.
