When you’re looking for a luxury SUV, it’s likely you’ve considered comparing the Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3. Both brands are well-known in the industry for their luxury and reliability, and are especially popular for enthusiasts who value performance. The 2021 Audi Q5 and the 2021 BMW X3 both include all the luxury, power, and performance you would expect from these brands; however, the BMW has a little bit more to offer. Don’t wait to check out the details of this popular BMW vs. Audi matchup.

Interior Features of the Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3

These vehicles start with similar price tags. Both include all the latest features, including Bluetooth® connectivity, push button start, dual zone climate control, and conveniently placed steering wheel-mounted controls. Even so, these similarities belie some significant differences! Similar to the other BMW SUV models, the X3 leads the segment in its standard features:

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

Compare the features listed above to the inclusions on the Audi Q5:

  • Button-controlled Navigation
  • 8-way power front bucket seats
  • 10-speaker audio system

It’s also important to point out that the X3 is more spacious and accommodating:

  • X3 Cargo Space: 28.7-62.7 cubic feet
  • Q5 Cargo Space: 25.1-53.1 cubic feet

Of course, if you’d like more space, you can compare BMW models to find exactly what you need. Our X3 vs. X5 comparison is a great place to start.

Powertrains & Specs of the Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3

Power and efficiency are the most important aspects to consider when buying a new car. You need to be sure you can travel between Marietta and Johns Creek with the best possible power and fuel economy available. The features of the Audi are impressive; however, the X3 offers a more satisfying driving experience overall:

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)
  • 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)
  • Available 3.0L 6-cylinder M Performance Engine – 382 hp / 365 lb-ft of torque | 21 mpg city / 27 mpg highway with xDrive AWD

Audi Q5 Powertrains

  • Standard 2.0L 4-cylinder Engine – 248 hp / 273 lb-ft of torque | 22 mpg city / 28 mpg highway (quattro® all-wheel drive)
  • Available 2.0L 4-cylinder Plug-In Hybrid Powertrain – 362 hp / 369 lb-ft of torque | 50 combined MPGe

Although both vehicles have comparable performance and fuel economy as standard, the X3 has a slightly better fuel economy—even with available all-wheel drive. Furthermore, since the BMW X3 Hybrid got up to 60 MPGe for model year 2020, we expect it to continue to exceed the standard set by the available plug-in hybrid powertrain for the Q5. 

If it’s power you’re after, you truly can’t go wrong with the available M Performance engine. Of course, the X3 M can deliver even more power to those who are hoping to pull out all the stops.
