MDX, 2019 RDX, or BMW X3 M40i?

As above, I'm looking for a suv to replace my wife's 2009 Honda Civic EX. I have the 2016 Acura ILX aspec tech plus with 23,000 miles, bought in March 2015. Yes low miles on the ilx because I took it to Korea when I went to Osan AB. We're looking at SUVs as our next car since we just got married and have no kids yet. I'm stationed now at my home in Hawaii. I plan to move in June 2019 likely to Germany and leave the ILX here with my parents while we are overseas since we can only have one car overseas.

While overseas in Germany I was thinking of getting a BMW X3 M40i pretty much loaded with the safety features and tech package, cold weather package with this. Considering it may cost nearly $67,250 for this build DECMRIX7 for a X4, i maybe able to get nearly $6500 through military sales and tax free since I'll be driving it in germany for at least 6 months. Plus wife will bring her civic with us to trade in for possibly $6k so it'll be $54,750. These are theoretical numbers since price for the new X3 isn't out yet. Still it'll likely be more expensive than a fully loaded 2019 RDX. It'll be slightly cheaper than a fully loaded MDX sport hybrid. However I'd be able to get a "good deal" with my long time high school friend who works at acura as a salesman for many years now so it'll like be much cheaper than MSRP but I'm not sure yet on how much cheaper.

So im in this dilemma on which suv to get. I drove the Current X3 Msport and it's a blast to drive and feels like a car when driving it. The same was with the RDX and mdx. The mdx sport hybrid of course was fun and it also drives like a car and dang the DCT is so smooth reminds me of my ILX and love it. The RDX is also something to look forward to also. I'm not sure which car would be "best for me" kind of thing as I'm in this situation lol. Though the BMW would be a blast to drive and the RDX economical and fun, the MDX keeps coming back to my mind and comparing my friends BMW X5 2015, the MdX seems like a great SUV for a awesome price for the space you get, tech and gas mileage. What do you think??
