Audi and BMW are two German automakers who always make everyone’s shortlist, and both of them often come up when Marietta drivers are shopping for compact SUVs. There are a few great BMW SUV models and Audi SUV models, but two that people ask about the most are the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. So, which is the best in the Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3 matchup? BMW of Gwinnett Place compares BMW models with Audi models below.

Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3: Interior Features

Marietta drivers doubtless expect luxury with these BMW SUV models and Audi vehicles, and they’ll get it. Each comes with your regular array of luxury features: keyless ignition, Bluetooth® connectivity, steering wheel-mounted controls, and dual-zone automatic climate control. BMW SUV models have a little more than that, though. You’ll get these standard features on the BMW X3, and only on the Audi Q5 if you buy an upgrade: 

  • 12 speaker audio system
  • Navigation system with voice activation
  • 10-way power front sport seats with driver memory settings

And the BMW X3 already starts out at a lower price! The interior of the X3 also has more cargo space: 

  • 2021 BMW X3 Cargo Space, Trunk: 28.7 cubic feet 
  • 2021 BMW X3 Max Cargo Space: 62.7 cubic feet
  • 2021 Audi Q5 Cargo Space, Trunk: 25.1 cubic feet 
  • 2021 Audi Q5 Max Cargo Space: 53.1 cubic feet

Compare BMW models to other Audi models and you’ll find many of the same advantages.

Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3: Powertrains & Specs

The Audi vs. BMW matchup showcases some powerful engines with great handling and other performance perks. Here’s a look at which engines are available to Alpharetta drivers wanting to compare BMW models to other vehicles: 

BMW X3 Powertrains

  • Standard 2.0L 4-cylinder Engine – 248 hp / 258 lb-ft of torque | 25 mpg city / 29 mpg highway (Rear-Wheel Drive), 23 mpg city / 29 mpg highway (Optional xDrive AWD)
  • Available3.0L 6-cylinder M Performance Engine – 382 hp / 365 lb-ft of torque | 21 mpg city / 27 mpg highway with xDrive AWD
  • Available 2.0L 4-cylinder Plug-In Hybrid Powertrain – 288 combined hp / 350 combined lb-ft of torque | MPGe To Be Announced (60 combined MPGe in 2020)

Audi Q5 Powertrains

  • Available 2.0L 4-cylinder Plug-In Hybrid Powertrain – 362 hp / 369 lb-ft of torque | 50 combined MPGe 

This Audi vs. BMW comparison shows us engines that are almost equal in power. But on the ever-important fuel economy rating, the X3 pulls ahead. We’re still waiting on the fuel economy ratings for the X3 hybrid, but this bodes well! So does the extra horsepower. 

Test Drive the 2021 BMW X3 in Duluth

It’s always exciting to look at the Audi vs. BMW competition every year. As we show above, there’s a lot going for the X3, but the best way to know if it’s right for you is to give it a test drive!
