The luxury crossover market has grown tremendously in recent years, and automakers are introducing new and updated models to keep up with the competition. The 2024 BMW X5 and 2024 Acura MDX are two of the latest offerings in this market, each with its unique features and capabilities. Choosing a suitable luxury crossover vehicle can be challenging, so we've comprehensively compared the BMW X5 and Acura MDX.

Interior & Exterior Styling Comparison

The BMW X5 has a sleek and stylish exterior, with a distinctive kidney grille and a bold front fascia. The X5 has LED headlights and taillights, while larger wheels and a panoramic sunroof are optional features. The X5 offers an impressive array of standard features, including numerous charging points for devices and, depending on the options chosen, myriad luxury features. You'll find power-adjustable front seats with memory for the driver on all trims and a power-adjustable steering column.

The 2024 Acura MDX has been completely redesigned, and its exterior is sharp and aggressive, with a diamond-shaped grille and sharp crease lines. The interior of the MDX has a premium look and feel, especially on the premium trims. They feature French-stitched leather on the dashboard and open-pore wood that mingles well with piano-black and metal accents. The MDX also has a standard sunroof, but most other features are available as part of optional packages.


Technology Features Comparison

When you enter the X5's cabin, you’ll see a curved wall of display screens that span two-thirds of the dashboard. A 12.3-inch screen behind the wheel is a gauge display, but there’s a larger 14.9-inch touchscreen where you have access to BMW's iDrive infotainment interface. The BMW X5 infotainment system is intuitive and customizable.


The MDX features an enormous 12.3-inch infotainment display with a console-mounted touchpad controller in the middle, which we're sorry to report is somewhat frustrating. You’ll find the 12.3-inch digital reconfigurable gauge display that’s standard, as are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The lineup also has an in-dash navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
