BMW 5 Series vs Acura TLX

An all-wheel drive executive sedan with handsome good looks? That sure sounds like the 2021 BMW 5 Series, and you’ll want to see how it compares to the Acura TLX. You can soar down the streets of Mobile, Alabama, in a new luxury car—but first, see what these models offer!

We’re eager to introduce you to the best and brightest sport sedans on the block. Explore your options and compare the 5 Series and TLX, courtesy of our experts at BMW of Mobile.

Break New Ground in a BMW Plug-In Hybrid

Break New Ground in a BMW Plug-In HybridYou know as well as we do how much it can be to drive a powerful sedan. Now, you have another opportunity—the chance to bolster your environmental credentials in a plug-in hybrid!

The 2021 5 Series and TLX are not equal in this respect. Only BMW has an entry here, known as the 530e Plug-In Hybrid. Finally, you can lead the charge with 288 horsepower and save serious fuel along the way. In fact, this 5 Series has its own all-electric mode.

That’s right: You can drive the BMW 530e without sipping even the smallest drop of gasoline. It has an all-electric range of up to 21 miles and even displays e-range on a hybrid-specific digital instrument cluster! Take note that the TLX is all gasoline, all the time.

5 Series & TLX: Climb to Peak Performance

5 Series & TLX: Climb to Peak PerformanceHigher… higher! Unlike Everest, it takes a mere matter of seconds to reach performance peak in a sport sedan. Can you scale higher heights in the BMW 5 Series or Acura TLX?

We’ll save you the suspense: The 5 Series has more power on tap. That’s not unexpected, given that BMW is better known for performance than the Acura brand. Choose from three different powertrains when you opt for the 5 Series sedan:

  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder—248 HP
  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder w/ electric motor—288 HP
  • 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8—523 HP (M550i) or 600–617 HP (M5)

Meanwhile, the TLX tops out with just 272 horsepower from its base turbo 4-cylinder engine. It may add a supercharged V6 later this model year, but even that isn’t expected to top the BMW M5.

Indulge in Your BMW 5 Series & Acura TLX 

Indulge in Your BMW 5 Series & Acura TLX A pampered interior should be part and parcel of every luxury car. You won’t be disappointed by the 2021 5 Series and TLX, which elevate your every moment behind the wheel.

Available plush leather-appointed seats and finely crafted finishes—metal in the Acura; metal and wood in the BMW—enhance the experience. The 5 Series even features available ceramic controls on the center console, a play that positions it well-beyond the TLX.

However, the BMW notches a win with available massaging front seats, a luxury you won’t find in the Acura. Arrive feeling relaxed, refreshed, and ready to take on anything!
