2020 BMW X3 vs. 2020 Audi Q5


Reputed for its product, BMW X3 is considered the most comfortable and elite SUV, but from totally a new outlook. These latest models come with a more modernized driver trains consisting of powerful engines, improved horsepower as well as torque. The incorporated modern cockpits are listed among the top X3’s functions.  More so, the latest SUV comprises an innate safety system and has the ability to react to voice signals. The latest X3 is unquestionably a gifted, highly performing automobile with an accurately-designed powertrain and an array of stunning technologies.

The Audi Q5, on the other hand, is also regarded as one of the most ideal luxurious vehicles of the time. However, there are several attributes that place the X3 model ahead of the rest including the Audi itself.

Design & Style

While the design has remained an important focal point for the BMW based X SUVs, this has not changed with the introduction of X3 M40i in the market. The 2020m bumper styling is far much more luxurious with diverse detailing and certainly, has the manufacturer’s trademark grille displaying the inbuilt badge. Revamped taillights, sturdy chassis style, alert adaptive LED headlights and high ground clearance inches are some of the attributes that make the latest M40i one of the trendiest in the automotive industry. Although entirely all the X3 series are availed with exceptional trim designs and unique styling, the X3 M-Sport provides an enhanced athletic look with shadow line external trim, shiny roof, and large-sized wheels for stability.

On its part, Audi Q5 is also aerodynamic and ergonomically suitable considering its latest exterior design. But, there is no chance that it can equal the X3’s unique and advanced layout.

Technology & safety

Regardless of the road condition – off-road or highway, the latest X3 M40i remains efficient, smooth and agile. Under the most adverse driving circumstances, the X3 M40i functions effortlessly and controls the level in high regions by applying the M Sport suspending the system. Again, using the available iDrive Protection Suite, the X3 M40i operates like a gifted automotive. It manages both rear and side collision monitor via an inbuilt-view camera. This is vital in the sense that it allows drivers to have a better view of the dark-spot to ensure safe traveling. It also renders freeway speeding much easier via adjustable speed controls & LED headlights via the auto-change functionalities. Yet, the X3 M40i outsmarts Audi by adding various extra instinctive technological features like voice commands and motion control.


In terms of performance, there is no doubt that engine upgrading within the constantly evolving Sporty automobile section is extremely essential. Even though the X3 trim works better on a four-cylinder double-turbo, the X3 M40i comes with a double-turbo six-cylinder delivering 355 hp &369 p-ft. The M40i variant works better by combining the correct acceleration with soft drivability in order to deliver a powerful and better performance. As it were, the l-4 2.0 L/21 that Audi comes with is undeniably not sufficient to give the M40i’s gigantic twin-turbo a run for its money.

Bottom line

Given that the two brands are listed among the best considering their stunning sporty layout series, the test involved in this high-class is extremely tough. While brand recognition, technology-integration and driving mechanics play a significant role all through the vehicle assessment, X3 M40i, enjoys an upper hand compared to Audi Q5. The latter has a much higher performance rating, extraordinary driving dynamics, and a better fuel efficiency level.
