2022 Audi Q5 vs 2022 BMW X3

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

The 2022 Audi Q5 and the 2022 BMW X3 are premium compact crossovers with a magnetic appeal. At first glance, it is easy to believe that they would deliver the same overall driving experience, but they have significant differences in features, abilities, and styling. After exploring the Q5 and the X3 in greater detail, which model will stand out to you as a superior option?


Two powertrains are available for the 2022 Audi Q5. The 45 TFSI comes with a 261-horsepower, turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. This is associated with a dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid powertrain is also available. It adds an electric motor to this same engine, and the result is 362 combined horsepower. The 2022 BMW X3’s first two trim levels receive 248 horsepower from a turbo 2.0-liter gas engine. A mild-hybrid V6 engine is offered in the top trim level. These are combined with an eight-speed auto transmission.


The Audi Q5 has a sophisticated, athletic look with a tall, grid-style grille and bold dimensions from end to end. The nose is also dressed up with a metallic skid plate and metal-outlined air vents. The tapered hood and the sleek sides have pinstripe accents for a premium touch. The X3 has subtle curvature throughout its profile, and its two-part grille is smaller than the Q5’s grille. The headlights have a radiating quality. You will find several linear elements with metal-accented lower panels on the sides.


The 2022 Q5 is magnificently appointed with luxurious features and high-tech equipment through all trim levels. Depending on the trim selected, your Audi crossover could have traffic sign recognition, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a heads-up display, a navigation system, heated front, and rear seats, a surround-view camera, traffic jam assist, adaptive cruise control, a wireless charging pad and more. The 2022 BMW X3’s standard features include front and rear parking sensors, a power liftgate, a dual-zone climate control system, remote monitoring, a navigation system, and a 12-speaker sound system.
