Serving Ridgeland, MS

The 2020 Acura MDX and the BMW X5 are often viewed comparably among crossover SUV shoppers initially. After all, these are both midsize luxury crossovers that offer many of the same features. However, differences are immediately apparent when you take a closer look. What essential differences should you be aware of before you pick out a new crossover SUV? Keep reading to find out.


The MDX is available with a V6 gas engine and a hybrid variation that combines the V6 engine with three electric motors. The X5, on the other hand, has an I-6 engine in the starting trim level. The MDX comes with active damping, all-wheel drive, power steering, and other essentials. The X5’s additional equipment includes tire pressure monitoring, anti-locking brakes, and a few others.


Overall, the 2020 MDX has a sleek flow from front to rear. The beautiful front end comes to a point across the pentagon-style grille. Five bulbs sit horizontally in each headlight, and each foglamp has three vertical bulbs. Deep side contours, bold hood definition, and black mesh on the lower front of the vehicle add beautiful distinction. The 2020 BMW X5, on the other hand, stands tall with a raised cabin, and the vertical bars on the grille draw additional attention to the vehicle’s height. All surfaces are relatively round, and the side panels and hood have the smallest touch of definition.


The MDX for 2020 is a three-row SUV with an easy-slide feature in the second row. Throughout this elegant crossover’s interior, you can find a power moonroof, leather seats, a premium navigation system, voice recognition, smart device integration, an 8-inch touch display screen, and other equipment. The 2020 X5’s interior has two rows with a split-fold feature in the back row. The front seats have three-stage heating and powered adjustments. Additional features are a climate control system, USB ports, a Hi-Fi sound system, and other gear.
