2018 Audi Q5 vs. 2017 BMW X3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW X3. The Audi Q5 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X3.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X3. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the BMW X3. When looking at overall length, the Audi Q5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X3.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the BMW X3, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q5 greatly out-muscles the BMW X3.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3. The Audi Q5 has less cargo space than the BMW X3, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi Q5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3.
