2017 BMW X1 vs. 2018 Audi Q5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Audi Q5, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X1 and the Audi Q5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Audi Q5, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the BMW X1 is a better financial choice over the Audi Q5, when considering MSRP. 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 BMW X1 and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Audi Q5, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Audi Q5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X1 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi Q5.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi Q5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Audi Q5. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X1 as you will in the Audi Q5.

Warranty
The BMW X1 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q5.
