2020 BMW X1 vs 2020 Audi Q3


BMW and Audi are two top-rated car brands in the industry with high-rated models including the 2020 Audi Q3 and the 2020 BMW X1. Thanks to its stylish cabin and cozy interior, the BMW X1 ranks higher than Audi Q3. Let us compare to learn more.

Design & Style

The 2020 Audi Q3 is a 5-seater car with comfortable seating in the front row. There’s  not much space on offer for 6-footers, but you can get some flexibility with the sliding and reclining rear seats. The interior has a sleek design and good build quality, but it does not match top rivals in this segment.

The 2020 BMW X1 is a 5-seater car with ample space to adjust passengers of all sizes. The front seats has 8-way power adjustment, and it provides good support. Thanks to a commanding seating position, driver has excellent outward visibility. It has been put together quite nicely, and its stylish cabin matches the price point. Enhanced options such as brushed aluminum and wood grain make the cabin look more stylish.

Technology & Safety

Standard tech features in the 2020 Audi Q3 include the HD Radio, 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, 4 USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Some key features include MMI infotainment system, wireless charging, and Virtual CockPit. Even though the interface is simple, the touch screen is not as responsive as you may expect. Some of the standard safety features include Audi Pre Sense Front (a type of forward collision warning), pedestrian detection, and Audi Pre Sense Basic, which tightens seat belts and rolls up window if it senses collision.

The 2020 BMW X1 comes with an iDrive infotainment system known for easy controls. The standard 8.8-inch touch-screen has excellent graphics and it can respond quickly to inputs. There’s also a rotary knob to control some functions. Apple CarPlay and navigation come standard, while optional features include parking sensors, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, speed limit recognition, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning.


The 2020 Audi Q3 comes standard with a 228-HP turbo-four engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. The Q3 feels overwhelmed when you are jetting down the highways, and the acceleration can be sluggish as well.

On the other hand, the 2020 BMW X1 comes with a turbo-four engine. It can help move the car quickly from a stop, and power delivery up to high speed. It offers ample muscle for daily commute. Furthermore, you get great fuel efficiency as well.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW X1 delivers plenty of user-friendly technology, luxurious cabin, comfortable ride and engaging performance. This luxury SUV has something for everyone. 1315887901
