From our wide selection of vehicles to our knowledgeable staff, we’re always willing to go the extra mile. To get you excited about the new faces of the 2019 BMW family lineup, we’re here to share with you how the latest BMW X1 matches up against the 2019 Audi Q3.


There is a lot involved in crafting a great luxury SUV, and both BMW and Audi try their best to make that possible in the 2019 BMW X1 and the 2019 Audi Q3. For one, both vehicles are equipped with similar sized engines, however, the BMW X1 utilizes its size far better, earning an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. These numbers far outweigh the EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway of the Audi Q3. When it comes to power, the BMW X1 outshines the Audi Q3 with a greater output: 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque vs 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque.


Beyond just engine power, what both vehicles offer in terms of options is certainly worth noting. The 2019 Audi Q3 offers two different trim options, and the base safety features are spartan when compared to vehicles of its class. The 2019 BMW X1 base model equips forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. The Audi Q3 fails to offer a driver alert monitor, whereas the BMW X1 does as optional. This innovative system detects when a driver gets drowsy and emits an alert to suggest a break.


To boot, the 2019 BMW X1 boasts more interior room than the Audi Q3. For example, its cargo space measures 27.1 cubic feet, while the Q3 renders just 16.7 cubic feet in the same configuration. While both vehicles feature split-folding rear seats, the BMW X3 has the upper hand with a max 58.7 cubic feet of storage volume, whereas the Q3 features 50.3 cubic feet.

It’s clear to see the many advantages of the 2019 BMW X1 when compared to the 2019 Audi Q3. To learn more about what it has to offer, contact us at BMW of Silver Spring, your trusted source for new BMW cars and pre-owned vehicles.
