  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Heated front seats
  • Noise/sound cancellation
  • Jewel-Eye® LED headlights
  • Satellite radio
  • Voice activated controls for audio and Bluetooth wireless enabled devices

RDX vs. X3: Performance

Which is more powerful, the RDX or X3? At the base level, it’s the RDX, which provides Santa Clara drivers with a 272-hp 2.0L I4 engine rated at 280 lb-ft of torque.

The BMW X3 comes with a 248-hp 2.0L I4 engine that generates just 258 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the RDX with front-wheel drive comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission for smooth performance, and the BMW X3 with rear-wheel drive gets an eight-speed automatic.
