If Your Clients are Considering a Q3...
They are probably interested in a German-made luxury compact SUV with reputable performance and build- quality. What they might not be aware of is the X1 not only has much more
rear seat and cargo space and quicker acceleration.. Additionally, BMW offers a 4-year/80,000-km included maintenance plan, whereas Audi only offers 1-year or one visit plan of included new vehicle maintenance unless an additional
Audi Care package is purchased for an additional $1,295.
What the Automotive Press Has to Say About the Q3...
“What the Automotive Press Has to Say About the BMW X1 xDrive28i...Were it our money, we'd seriously consider the 2020 BMW X1 xDrive28i against its primary
competitors, mainly the Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3. Of the three, the BMW's mini-X styling and tall body make it the most spacious and most like a conventional SUV in terms of profile. It doesn't seem to suffer in the handling
or performance arena because of this, but it does make the X1 more livable when filled to capacity than either of its competitors.”

What the Automotive Press Has to Say About the BMW X1 xDrive28i...
"It's the BMW, however, that offers more cargo space, with 27.1 cubic feet versus the Audi's 23.7, and there's a ton of extra storage under the X1's
trunk floor. This is because it's fitted with run-flat tires, so there's isn't a spare tire aboard as there is in the Q3."
"The Audi feels great until you drive the BMW.” The X1 is the one you want to drive. Its powertrain
and chassis are far superior to the Audi's, and its interior, although less spacious, is constructed with better materials and to a higher level of quality. It's also more fuel efficient, and it has the greater cargo volume.
Although it's easy to recommend the new Audi Q3, the BMW X1 is the winner of this comparison.”
When compared to the BMW X1, the new Q3 lacks some comfort and performance features that consumers expect to see in a luxury vehicle. Even still, the BMW X1 possesses customizable features like the Advanced Vehicle
and Key Memory, performance, and cargo space that can’t be matched at any level by the Q3. Based on specifications, features, better performance, better fuel economy, and reputable automotive review site assessments, the BMW X1 wins
