BMW vs Acura: Which Has More Cars?

You want options as you shop for your dream daily driver. Diversity of choice is the best way to stumble upon the car that best meets your needs, and here, BMW has a leg up over Acura.

How? Well, BMW simply has more models on the market. While the Acura lineup is limited to a handful of luxury sedans and sport utility vehicles, you have literally dozens of BMW models to choose from. Shop sedans and Sports Activity Vehicles®, sure, but also coupes and convertibles:

  • BMW X1
  • BMW X3
  • BMW X5
  • BMW X7
  • BMW 2 Series
  • BMW 3 Series
  • BMW 5 Series
  • BMW 7 Series

    You can also consider dozens of sport-tuned models from BMW M, the brand's performance arm. A specially tuned BMW M TwinPower Turbo engine, plus performance brakes, suspensions, and differentials lend these models so much more power and athleticism than Acura cars.

    BMW also has a far larger selection of plug-in hybrid and all-electric models. Find the future of driving with innovative powertrains from Bavarian Motor Works!

    Luxury Car Exclusives: BMW Has More

    Unlike the everyday automotive marque, luxury carmakers focus on the brand, not the model. You don't say you drive an X4-you tell people you drive a BMW! In a space more centered on brand character than individual differences, does BMW or Acura stand out?

    Each brand has its own claim to fame. For instance, Acura drivers will show off their car's Jewel Eye® LED headlamps, while BMW lovers won't miss a chance to flash Icon Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight (if so equipped). BMW has the kidney grille, while Acura sports a diamond pentagon.

    But in many ways, BMW has better and more memorable brand features available. These features have no competition to speak of from Acura:

    • Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof - Available on select models, this BMW exclusive offers a panoramic moonroof illuminated by LED light in your choice of six brilliant colors!
    • Glass or Ceramic Controls - The ultimate show of sophistication. Plate the center console controls in some models with available glass or ceramic trim pieces.
    • Extended Shadowline Trim - Add a sporty, mysterious appearance to many models with blacked-out kidney grilles and dramatic aesthetic enhancements.

    Is BMW Better Than Acura?

    No brand can claim complete victory-some drivers are attracted to BMW and others prefer the character of Acura. It's a matter of taste, but we believe Bavarian Motor Works offers so much more to be excited about. More variety, more exclusivity, and more innovation!
