Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q4 e-tron offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW X3. The BMW X3 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Audi Q4 e-tron.

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). Whether you pick the Audi Q4 e-tron or the BMW X3, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Audi Q4 e-tron is a little narrower than the BMW X3, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi Q4 e-tron is slightly shorter than the BMW X3, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Audi Q4 e-tron has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW X3, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi Q4 e-tron has a little less horsepower than the BMW X3.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q4 e-tron and the BMW X3. The Audi Q4 e-tron has less cargo space than the BMW X3, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
