2020 BMW X3 vs. 2020 Audi Q5

When it comes to the titans of the luxury SUV segment, Audi vs. BMW are always battling it out for first place. So if you’re trying to decide between the popular 2020 Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3, which should you choose? While the Audi Q5 has tons of great qualities, we think that the BMW X3 is the ultimate choice. But don’t take our word for it, check out the evidence below.

Audi vs. BMW: Price

Both models include tons of impressive performance and luxury features, but you won’t pay the same price for those specs. When you compare the Audi Q5 vs. BMW X3, the BMW X3 has a lower starting price than the Audi:

  • Audi Q5: $43,300 MSRP

Audi vs. BMW: Interior Dimensions

When you choose an SUV for the Pekin area, you want to take advantage of all that space. Between the two, the new BMW X3 lineup has much more room to utilize. Whether you have a full cabin of passengers or you fold all seats flat, the X3 still has the edge:
