2022 BMW X1 vs. 2022 Honda CR-V


BMW and Audi are two of the most popular car brands in the market, and both of them have released their new vehicles, the 2022 BMW X1 and 2022 Audi Q3. While they look similar to each other, they are actually quite different when it comes to functionality and features. If you’re still trying to choose between these two options, here’s what you need to know about both cars so you can decide which one will suit your needs best.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

Although both vehicles are compact crossovers, they have very different exterior designs. The Audi’s body is based on a combination of a hatchback and an SUV, featuring sleek lines and edgy side trim. It also has a sloping rear roofline that adds to its sporty appearance. Meanwhile, like other BMW models, the 2022 BMW X1 is more streamlined and curvaceous than other small crossovers.

  • Interior Design

Both 2022 Honda CR-V and 2022 BMW X1 feature a nice, spacious interior with a comfortable environment for passengers to enjoy their ride. You can place anything in your back seats since there is no hump in between. The rear legroom of both 2022 Honda CR-V and 2022 BMW X1 are almost similar at around 39 inches, which is quite good for regular adult riders and tall people! The shape of the seats is round and comfortable enough for extended trips or short ones. For your entertainment, you can use a built-in touch screen panel (or two of them) so that you won’t feel bored during your trip due to lack of quality entertainment systems like those offered by the 2022 Honda CR-V or 2022 BMW X1!

Technology & Safety

Although both 2022 Honda CR-V and 2022 BMW X1 come with tons of standard tech and safety features, each one is pretty different when it comes to the availability of specific systems and innovative functions: while most of these advanced technologies are optional on both vehicles, some are only available in higher trim levels, which means you have to pay a bit more if you want that specific system on your vehicle. As for safety features, what you get will depend on whether you’re buying a base or higher trim level: for example, only top-end versions of both models come with automatic emergency braking (AEB) as standard equipment.


While the 2022 Honda CR-V has 161 HP engine, its competition only has 136 HP engine on average. Both models have 2L four-cylinder engines, but the 2022 Honda CR-V can deliver torque that is lower by 200 Nm than what its main rivals can offer (15 Nm). Remember that high torque makes a vehicle more fun to drive and fuel efficiency improves due to less fuel consumption per mile: better engines perform better than low-performance models in every respect!

The Bottom Line

Do you want comfort, Performance, and Style: What really matters to you? If it’s comfort and performance, then know that both of these cars have been acclaimed for their comfort, power, and design. For example, several publications have singled out the engine of the 2022 BMW X1 as one of its best features. Then again, if your concerns are more aesthetic than functional (i.e., you care about style more than anything else), then we think it’s worth mentioning that many reviewers describe all cars as some of most stylish available on today’s market.
