Which Brand Has More Variety?

As you shop for your new ride, you want the luxury of choice! BMW outdoes Acura in a big way here, as it offers a much larger and more diverse lineup. You can literally shop for days!

The Acura lineup is limited to premium sedans and SUVs, and as of now, includes roughly half a dozen models. Meanwhile, BMW has dozens of models available. You'll have sedans, coupes, convertibles, and Sports Activity Vehicles® (the BMW moniker for SUVs) to choose from:

The BMW brand also includes plug-in hybrid and all-electric models-two options Acura doesn't put on the table as of yet. The brand's performance lineup, dubbed BMW M, far outstrips Acura, with more powerful models and a couple dozen of them to boot.

The BMW Laserlight Advantage

Let those LEDs shine forth fiercely and illuminate the path ahead. Both luxury brands are known for their signature headlamps, each with their own unique shape and style.

If you know anything about Acura, you'll recognize the brand's Jewel Eye® LED headlights a mile up the road! They reveal the road more clearly, without blinding oncoming traffic. Of course, the same could be said about BMW's Icon Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight technology.

This technology uses specific blue elements to produce light more efficiently than common LED bulbs. The BMW Laser emblems look brilliant and will help you see and be seen on the roads!

BMW vs Acura: Interior Luxury

You expect to be pampered by your luxury vehicle of choice. Acura and BMW do their best with premium materials and features, from leather-appointed seats to panoramic moonroofs.

Though availability differs by model, you can always revel in bold style choices-even available wood and metal finishes! They add some extra sense of luster to the dashes and door panels, as well as the center consoles. In some ways, though, BMW goes the extra mile once again:

  • Ceramic or Glass Controls. Select models offer Ceramic or Glass Controls for your BMW gear shifter, iDrive Controller, audio controls, and Start/Stop button.
  • Merino leather. The finest leather available in BMW cars can be found in the brand's most premium models. It's free from dyes and artificial colors.
  • Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof. This fine addition to models like the BMW X5 and X7 enhances the dimensions of your moonroof with LED illumination in six beautiful colors.

Is BMW Better Than Acura?

While no luxury car brand can objectively be better than another, there's no doubt BMW makes a strong case for itself over Acura. Certainly, when it comes to selection and luxury features, the BMW brand has more than a few feathers in its cap. It could be better for you!
