They’re both performance-oriented luxury sedans starting around $40,000, but the Acura TLX and BMW 3 Series have some important differences. Let’s see which is stronger in the areas that matter to you.2022 Acura TLX The top dog in Acura’s two-car sedan lineup was completely redesigned for 2021. The newest TLX is fun to drive and looks fantastic. Pricing starts at $38,900.
Acura TLX highlights Class-above presence: While the TLX and 3 Series are similarly sized inside, the Acura is almost 9 inches longer than the BMW
In the land of bigger is better, the more substantial TLX holds a visual advantage. Excellent resale value: Strong reliability and resale value are two pillars of Acura’s appeal. Combined with a starting price that puts it about $2,500 below the BMW, you’ll pay less for a similarly equipped TLX up front, and you’ll recoup a bigger share of that money when you sell it. Longer powertrain warranty: Both cars offer 4 years or 50,000 miles of basic warranty coverage. But the Acura’s engine, transmission and related parts are covered by a longer 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty.
