2022 BMW X1 vs. 2022 Audi Q5


If you’re looking for a small and playful SUV that drives fast and looks good then you should look no further than the 2022 BMW X1. This upgraded version comes with a ton of features, but how does it compare against its main rival – the 2022 Audi Q5? Both vehicles come with interesting features and technologies, so it’s worth taking a look at them and seeing how they stack up.

At the end of the day, both cars are made by German manufacturers and as you probably already know, nothing beats German engineering. Still, let’s take a look at these two vehicles and see what the 2022 models bring to the table.

Design & Style

One of the main advantages of the 2022 BMW X1 is the beautiful and stylish interior. When you get inside the car, you’ll be surrounded by a plethora of premium woods and textured upholstery. The instrument cluster is easy to read and this car can comfortably seat 5 people. You might also be happy to know that this model from BMW comes with a carpeted interior.

The Audi also boasts premium materials and it can transport 5 people in great comfort. It has an attractive dashboard that leaves no room for distractions and it comes with an intuitive cluster instrument. However, the cargo space in the Audi is rather small, so you might not want to buy this car to transport stuff around.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology features, both vehicles have something interesting to say. For example, the 2022 BMW X1 comes with a large 8.8-inch display that allows you to easily adjust the main settings of the car. You also get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard as well as numerous driver aids such as emergency braking and lane departure warning.

The Audi also comes with an infotainment system and a decent audio system. This vehicle supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but if you’re looking for a better speaker system and more sophisticated driving aids, you have to pay more.


You might be happy to find out that the 2022 BMW X1 comes with a powerful 2.0 turbocharged engine that produces 228 horsepower. This engine is connected to an automatic gearbox and allows you to quickly overtake someone or reach your destination on time. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, offers a more modest 201 horsepower from a 2.0 turbocharged engine. The vehicle is still quick, but the acceleration is not as exciting in comparison with the BMW model.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, both these vehicles incorporate modern technologies that will make you want to drive miles after miles. It’s just a matter of personal preference, but if you’re looking for the best car in this category, you are probably better off with the 2022 BMW X1.
