2022 BMW X4 M vs. 2022 Jaguar F-Pace


The 2022 BMW X4 M and the 2022 Audi SQ5 are compact SUVs with incredible performance, safety, and comfort. Which one is better for you? We’ve taken a closer look at these vehicles to see which one should take home the best compact sports utility vehicle.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The 2022 BMW X4 M is the better-looking car. With its wide stance and aggressive design, the X4 M’s looks align more with what you’d expect from a sporty SUV. Its aggressive front end gives it an imposing presence on the road. As you look back along its flanks, you’ll notice that this crossover is wider than its competitor’s thanks to its wider track width and larger wheels—the latter of which help to contribute to its lower center of gravity. The Audi SQ5 has a more conservative exterior design that may appeal to some buyers but won’t necessarily attract attention as the BMW X4 M would.

  • Interior Design

The 2022 BMW X4 M is the clear winner regarding interior design. From its sporty seats and steering wheel to its carbon fiber trim and controls, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into a race car. The Audi SQ5? Not so much. It looks more like a suburban family sedan than an SUV, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing—it still has plenty of bells and whistles for millennials who want their vehicles to do everything except drive themselves (which is perfectly fine). The Audi SQ5 also boasts seating for up to five passengers, while the BMW X4 M can accommodate four adults comfortably if they’re close friends or related by bloodlines (relative term).

The Audi SQ5 wins this category because it offers more practicality than pure style. The front seats are fully adjustable and offer lumbar support for long drives, plus there’s plenty of storage space in both front and back rows—you could even fit your entire Costco haul in there!

Technology & Safety

The X4 M offers a more advanced safety system than the SQ5. The X4 M has adaptive cruise control that can engage and disengage automatically. For example, when traffic slows down to a stop, and you’re following behind it, the system will automatically engage. When traffic starts moving again, the system will automatically disengage, so you don’t hit the car in front of you if they suddenly accelerate without warning. In addition to adaptive cruise control, the X4 M also offers lane departure warning and forward collision warning (with automatic emergency braking) and lane keep assist and rear cross-traffic alert (which warns about vehicles coming from either side).

The X4 M’s infotainment system is more advanced than the SQ5. The X4 M has an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™ capability for seamless integration of your mobile device into its infotainment system; it also has satellite radio capability (including HD radio), Bluetooth wireless connectivity for hands-free calling and audio streaming plus voice recognition functionality for hands-free voice commands via Siri Eyes Free or Google Assistant.


The BMW x4 M engine packs 473 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, significantly more than the Audi SQ5’s 280 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

The BMW x4 M also has a better 0-60 time than the Audi SQ5: 3.8 seconds compared to 4.9 seconds.

The Bottom Line

The BMW X4 M is the better option.

It outperforms the competition in just about every way, and it has an attractive design that will appeal to anyone who likes cars. It’s also more stylish than the Audi SQ5, making it a great choice for those looking for something other than a crossover vehicle.
