Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi e-tron than in the BMW X3 M. The BMW X3 M offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi e-tron, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the BMW X3 M, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi e-tron, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Audi e-tron is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X3 M. 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 e-tron and the BMW X3 M have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi e-tron is much wider than the BMW X3 M, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi e-tron, which is slightly longer than the BMW X3 M.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Audi e-tron doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X3 M.

Handling
The Audi e-tron has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X3 M, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi e-tron has a lot less horsepower than the BMW X3 M.

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

Warranty
The Audi e-tron comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3 M.
