Performance Specifications of the 2017 Audi Q3 vs. BMW X1

If you're thinking about buying a luxury vehicle, you want something that's as fast as it is comfortable. Thankfully, you'll find that in the 2017 BMW X1. Powered by a 2.0L turbo I-4 engine, the vehicle produces up to 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, and gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. With a nice, narrow turning diameter of 37.4, the vehicle is easily maneuverable.

On the other hand, the 2017 Audi Q3 comes standard with a 2.0L I-4 turbo engine that maxes out at just 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a slightly sluggish six-speed automatic transmission, and gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. This vehicle has a slightly larger turning diameter of 38.7, which means it doesn't have quite a tight turn ability as its competitor.
