2021 BMW 3 Series vs Acura TLX

 
  
  
 
 


Looking for your next luxury sedan? We’re betting you’ve come across the 2021 BMW 3 Series and 2021 Acura TLX, and what a great place to start your search! These vehicles are awesome options to spice up your drives around Atlantic City, Egg Harbor, and Vineland, NJ.

To give you the full scoop on both these models, our team at BMW of Atlantic City has developed this 2021 BMW 3 Series vs. Acura TLX comparison, so you can get all the information you need right in one place.


2021 BMW 3 SERIES VS ACURA TLX: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

When you opt for a higher-end vehicle, you’re going to want the latest technology features. Fortunately, the 2021 3 Series and the TLX offer standard infotainment systems that will keep you connected and safe.

The 3 Series and TLX are neck and neck when it comes to their entertainment features. The 3 Series offers BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, while the Acura offers a similar system. However, the 3 Series offers the unique ability to control the system with the iDrive touchpad Controller.

When it comes to the latest driver-assistance features, the 3 Series and TLX are tied in this area as well. Both offer plenty of standard features, some of which include:

  • Rear-view Camera
  • Frontal Collision Warning
  • Automatic High Beams

One additional unique standard feature on the 3 Series is the Automatic City Collision Mitigation and Braking system. While this system is similar to the frontal collision warning features of both sedans, this is specifically tuned to help during intense city driving.

3 SERIES VS TLX INTERIOR

The interior of your next vehicle should give you the look and feel of luxury that you’d expect. The cabin of the 2021 BMW 3 Series is made of high-quality materials, like standard SensaTec Upholstery, and a Fine Wood trim with Ash Grey-Brown high gloss. Unfortunately, the TLX falls a bit short here, with the authentic open-pore wood trim being available on only the highest trim level.

The BMW 3 Series also offers more passenger space, with 35.2 inches of legroom in the back seat, while the TLX follows with 34.9 inches of rear legroom. If you’re looking for headroom, you’ll find 38.7 inches up front in the BMW 3 Series where the TLX only offers 37.2 inches.

Overall, the 3 Series takes the lead to fit everyone on the way to your next night out.


 

 

 

BMW 3 Series Performance

3 SERIES VS TLX POWER AND PERFORMANCE

Although comfort and technology are certainly important in your next vehicle, you’ll want your sedan to be equally as powerful. The 3 Series takes the lead in this category, as well, with three different engine options to choose from:

  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder: 255 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder: 382 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder with integrated electric motor: 288 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque

The TLX comes with just one 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which can only offer 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. While that alone makes it clear that the 3 Series is the victor in this category, it’s also worth noting that only the BMW 3 Series is available with a hybrid powertrain.


2021 BMW 3 SERIES VS 2021 ACURA TLX: THE RESULTS

Although both the BMW 3 Series and Acura TLX are great options for your next sedan, we think the 3 Series has the engine options, passenger space, and luxurious style to make it worth a test drive.
