2022 BMW X3 vs 2022 Audi Q5

Serving Milwaukee, WI

A thorough search for a smaller luxury crossover SUV will lead you to the impressive BMW X3. Thanks to its brilliant performance capabilities and extensive features, this is an exciting option to consider. However, it is frequently compared to the Audi Q5, another smaller luxury crossover SUV model. After getting to know these 2022 models, which SUV will stand out to you as a premium option?


The 2022 BMW X3 is sold with your choice of two engines. The lower trim levels receive 248 horsepower from their turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gas engine. The M-Performance version of the X3 has a V6, 3.0-liter mild-hybrid powertrain system that offers 382 combined horsepower. These are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base trims for the Q5 also have a turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gas engine. Like the X3, the Audi Q5 is offered with a hybrid engine. This is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine connected to an electric motor, and the result is 362 combined horsepower.


Both the 2022 BMW X3 and the Audi Q5 are mid-generation vehicles. However, the X3 shows off a refreshed exterior with a new look for the front and rear facades. This modernized styling reflects a two-part, bar-style grille and scalloped LED headlights. The profile is elegant, and the streaming contours on the sides highlight the X3’s athleticism. The Q5 is available with a Black Optics package as an option for the first time in 2022. All other aspects of the Q5 are comparable to its preceding version. A grid-style grille and chunky consume the nose LED headlights. Both the hood and side panels have pinstripe definition. The roofline rakes sharply downward across the liftgate.


Suppose you opt to drive the BMW X3. In that case, your 2022 crossover SUV could come with equipment like an MBUX system, an auto parking system, heated front and rear seats, leather material, rear side sunshades, a Harman Kardon sound system, a navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, and other gear. The 2022 Audi Q5, on the other hand, has standard features like heated front seats, leather material, an auto climate control system, rain-sensing wipers, smart device connections, and more.
