BMW X3 vs. Audi Q5: Performance

If you're in the market for a luxury crossover utility vehicle, you want power and performance that reflect your high level of investment. And that's exactly what you'll find with these two vehicles. However, you'll immediately notice a huge difference between them in terms of power production. 

The 2016 BMW X3 offers a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces up to 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The 2016 Audi Q5 base engine produces only 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. But that doesn't even take into consideration the other two power options available in the X3 offering that powerful range of up to 300 horsepower, whereas the Q5 maxes out its power production at just 272 horsepower.

Feature Availability Comparison

On the interior of your luxury crossover, you want all of the high-end features you've been looking for, like HD radio and an advanced infotainment system with concierge services, automatic emergency services, and destination guidance. In the 2016 BMW X3, you'll find all of these as well as other cool standard features, like run-flat tires, that allow you to keep driving until you're able to pull over. 

But do you know what you won't find in the 2016 Audi Q5? Any of the neat features we just mentioned that are standard in the BMW X3. Unfortunately, the 2016 Q5 is missing the advanced features buyers are looking for and it's not just that they're not standard; they're simply not available. Other features that aren't available on the Q5 include Head-Up Display, Active Driving Assistant, and Parking Assistant-all of which are available on the X3.
