2020 BMW 3 Series vs 2020 Acura TLX

Serving Greenville, SC

BMW's 3 Series is a luxury compact sedan that has been impressing elite drivers for more than 45 years. While it has passed through seven generations and is loaded with genuinely innovative features today, it has retained the elegance that strongly appeals to drivers. The Acura TLX may be compared to the 3 Series because these models are placed in the same auto class. Nonetheless, they stand apart in most essential areas, and learning about their strengths can help you finalize your sedan selection.


The allure of the 2020 BMW 3 Series is undeniable thanks to its unique façade that balances elegant smoothness with a certain sense of power. BMW's recognizable grille has an elongated style, and this grille is perfectly integrated with dual-bulb headlights. An LED light beam tops these headlights, and they have a pulled, dramatic look. Throughout the exterior, the 3 Series has power-folding side mirrors, a powered sunroof with a sunshade, keyless access, 18-inch wheels, and more. The Acura TLX for 2020 shows its style differently. As is the case with many other Acura models on the market today, a central definition line that runs down the hood establishes the grille's vertical crease. This angled grille has a pentagon shape and is separated from the five-bulb headlights. Foglights, a sunroof, power-adjustable side mirrors, and a few other features are standard or available on various TLX trim levels for 2020.


The 2020 3 Series from BMW is an advanced sedan that is appropriately equipped with elite materials and coveted technologies. You can appreciate the many features if you choose the 3 Series as your next sedan include a tri-zone climate management system, a keyless starter, an auto-dimming rear mirror, Connected Drive, Live Cockpit Plus, USB ports, a HiFi premium sound system and others. The interior of the Acura TLX shows off multiple molded surfaces throughout the dashboard and two display screens. The leather seats are bolstered in the front row. Ambient lighting, smart device app integration, and wireless charging are a few of the TLX's interior features.


A behind-the-wheel comparison of the 2020 3 Series and the TLX reveal more differences. The base powertrain for the BMW 3 Series is an I-4, twin-power turbo 2.0-liter engine. It is mated to a sports auto transmission with manual shifting modes, and it produces 255 horsepower. The most powerful gas engine available for the 3 Series gives you 382 horsepower. The TLX's base engine is a 2.4-liter, I-4 design that delivers 206 horsepower. A V6 engine is also available, and it offers 290 horsepower.
