2018 BMW 3 Series vs 2018 Acura ILX near Hattiesburg, MS

2018 BMW 3 Series shown above with optional equipment. 

Deciding which luxury vehicle to take home can seem like a tedious and daunting task. We at BMW of Meridian are here to make that process a bit easier by introducing you to our latest and greatest BMW 3 Series. This sedan includes all of the must-haves for an automotive experience unlike any other. If fact, we have created a head-to-head matchup between the aforementioned vehicle and the 2018 Acura ILX so you can see how it fares compared to similar vehicles in its class. You can come take it out for a test drive when you stop by our location at 2000 Highway 39 North in Meridian, MS

Power

When it comes to finding the perfect combination of opulence and power, the BMW brand reigns supreme. That is prevalent from the moment that you hop into the driver’s seat to experience the sheer force at your disposal. You are bound to fall in love once you grip the steering wheel of the 2018 3 series to unleash the sheer force lying beneath the sheet metal. When you spring for the 3.0L turbocharged 6-cylinder powertrain, you will have an exciting 320 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque to motivate your trips down Russell Drive. Unfrotuantely, when you opt for the 2018 ILX, you will have a 2.4L 4-cylinder that can only disperse a disappointing 201 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque.

Interior

Power clearly steals the show when it comes to the matchup between the 3 Series and Acura ILX, but what about what lies inside of each of these beauties? Let’s start things off by diving straight into the 2018 3 Series. You won’t have any trouble finding your perfect point of relaxation when you upgrade to the 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Unfortunately, in the 2019 ILX, you won’t get quite as much flexibility with the standard 8-way option, leaving to you to get out and stretch more often. Lastly, you will have three different body styles to choose from in the 3 Series, leaving your customization preferences totally up to you!

Space

Luxury sedans are most known for their art of finesse, but that doesn't’ mean that you have to sacrifice cabin space by any means necessary! Your copilots in the back won’t have any trouble finding their perfect point of relaxation in the 2018 3 Series, because they will have a spacious 35.1 inches of rear legroom. Unfortunately, when you opt for the 2018 ILX, you will have a lesser 34 inches of rear legroom which simply won’t suffice during those long road trips. You won’t have to listen to any arguing in the back either, because when you choose the BMW, you will have 55.1 inches of rear shoulder room and only 53.5 inches in the Acura. 

When it comes between the 2018 BMW 3 Series vs 2019 Acura ILX in Hattiesburg, MS, the choice is clear. You can come check out the former today when you stop by BMW of Meridian to take this beauty out for a test drive. We have flexible business hours and look forward to your visit.

The general manager is one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet for someone who works at car dealership most people think of general managers is the guy who counts the pennies tries to sell you the undercoating and tries to add the extra things to the contract so that you spent a little bit extra more but their general manager is there to help you get precisely what you want he doesn't try to pressure you into buying anything extra of what he does doing is he make sure that when you leave that lot that you are 100% satisfied

My salesman was great, very helpful and did majority of everything over the phone. I took it back because of issues with my driver side headlight and the sales manager JW was very rude, unprofessional, accused me to being the reason the issue needed fixing and made very smart remarks (today isn’t the day). Everyone else was friendly but i wouldn’t buy anything else from them or recommend anyone simply because of him. One bad employee makes the whole dealership look bad.

We have owned BMWs for many years and this dealership (previously Sunbelt BMW) has always taken excellent care of us. On the rare occasions we had a problem it was always taken care of promptly. We have purchased two BMWs under the new ownership and the experience continues to be excellent. The service given at this dealership is one of the reasons we continue to do business here.

I LOVE MY BMW. I have gone there for service intervals always greeted with a smile and friendly staff. The guys at the front service desk or superb and my tech Mark Fuller was awesome. Bmw are expensive but I recommend many of my friends to BMW not only for the ultimate driving machine but also the great service that BMW of Meridian offers. Waiting room offers tv, Wi-Fi, coffee, water, and reading material. The plus side is great service. Down side is I need more money to purchase a BMW M3 as a toy. Thanks guys again for awesome experience again.
