2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid vs 2016 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 near Milwaukee, WI

2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid vs 2016 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 near Milwaukee, WI

2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD in Crystal Black Pearl

You’ve decided that you want a hybrid. Correction, you want a phenomenal hybrid. You need something that’s as efficient as it is fun to drive, and you crave a vehicle that can cater to all of your whims and wants and wishes. Let us at Acura of Brookfield lend a hand in making your decision by pitting our amazing 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid up against another notable from the segment: the 2016 BMW ActiveHybrid 5. After this in-depth look, we think you’ll want to visit us at 19180 W. Bluemount Road in Brookfield, WI!

The RLX Sport Hybrid isn’t a typical hybrid, and you can tell from the fact that it actually has three electric motors. Yes, three. They’re combined with a 3.5-liter i-VTEC® engine and it all totals out at a flawless 377 horsepower that you’ll enjoy merging onto I-94 with. The 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission and Electronic Gear Selector provide smooth, seamless shifts and the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive gives you total control — no matter how inclement the weather gets in February. Top it off with the fact that this beauty has Idle Stop and clocks in at an incredibly frugal 29/30/29 MPG city/hwy/combined1, and there’s really no weak spot on the RLX Sport Hybrid.

We’re not going to say that our version totally smokes the competitor, but it kind of does. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 pairs a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline 5-cylinder engine with only one electric motor — that’s the first strike against this vehicle. The second strike is that these two combined only provide 335 horsepower. In light of that, you might think that the fuel efficiency would be outstanding, but you’d be wrong! The ActiveHybrid 5 barely clocks in at 23/30/26 MPG city/hwy/combined2, which just can’t compete with the RLX Sport Hybrid. You’ll also notice that the ActiveHybrid 5 comes standard in RWD, which is notoriously terrible for trekking through any sort of snow or rain. Keep that in mind!

BMW regrouped to improve their fuel efficiency for 2018, but fell far short of anything that can compare with the RLX Sport Hybrid. Not only did they downgrade to an inline-4 engine, but it now only produces 248 horsepower — that’s a lot of power loss! It still remains standard in RWD, and does improve it’s fuel efficiency, but at what cost to the handling and performance?

You’ll notice some significant differences on the inside of these hybrids, too, including when it comes to the entertainment system. The RLX Sport Hybrid comes with a Krell® Audio System for starters, and it features a whopping 14-speaker layout. The ActiveHybrid 5 charges extra for its Harmon Kardon® 12-speaker system, which just seems like salt in the wound.

We’ve laid it out pretty succinctly in this comparison between the 2017 Acura Sport Hybrid vs 2016 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 near Milwaukee, WI, comparison. We even threw in some 2018 stats! Visit us at Acura of Brookfield today to really experience what it’s like behind the wheel of the champion, the one and only RLX Sport Hybrid. We hope to see you soon!

Gary provided excellent customer service. He took his time to listen, to problem-solve, and to find the best solutions. He didn't push for additional work, which is often the case in dealerships. Gary showed kindness and empathy -- this builds trusting relationships and keeps people coming back.

On the sales side, Stuart was easy to work with; no pressure and prompt, honest responses to questions. Roger on the closing side was efficient and helped me get through on a timely basis. Denver on the delivery end was helpful both in regard to overall vehicle orientation and set up of the custom driver functions.

I was in the midst of dealing with a family health crisis when my parked car was totaled. I needed a car and had almost no time to shop for one. Years earlier I had an MDX so looked on line for cars in stock and called my trusted salesman Steve Armitage to schedule a test drive. He helped me find the best car for my needs and went out of his way to make the transaction and delivery as efficient as possible. The kindness and professionalism of Steve and the team is so appreciated.

Service was excellent. Colin Fiedler is very professional and customer focused. My only fly in the ointment with the service experience is the expectation to refuel the loaner vehicle. Unless someone is taking a trip to Madison or something, you’d expect gas to be part of the package when one is spending thousands of dollars in service and is a loyal customer. Just a thought. Thanks.

Took the car in with a small issue, Colin greeted me and put me in a loaner for the day. Wasn't halfway through the day that they told me the issue was resolved and I could keep the loaner till I was done with work. Picked up the car and it was fixed. So happy! I didn't even have to worry.

Service done to my car was good, customer service from Gary, service person was good but when I went to pick up my car, people that was there where Not nice at all. Three people looked at me and walked away without asking anything, another person helped me, he was nice. then, when I went to pay, cashiers did not even smile and when I went out the door to get my car, one of those cashiers was behind me, I held the door for her and she didn't even say Thank you!
