2018 Audi Q3 VS 2017 BMW X1

Two Big-Name Luxury Compact SUVs Face Off to Show Which Small-but-Mighty Crossover Reigns Supreme

While both of these smaller-sized SUVs are luxurious in their own right, if you’re still deciding whether you’d rather join the BMW family or the Audi family of vehicles with your next new SUV, allow this quick-fire comparison below help you in reaching your final decision. The information on the 2018 BMW X1 is still sparse, but the 2018 Audi Q3 is already available:

When You Dare to Compare, the Winner is Obvious:

  • Price: Despite the difference in years, with the 2018 Audi Q3 squaring off against the 2017 BMW X1, the 2018 Audi Q3 still costs less upfront than the 2017 BMW X1, arriving with an MSRP of $32,900, which is just a tick under the 2017 BMW X1’s base MSRP of $33,750. If that’s the split between the two model years, we’re left to wonder how much more expensive it will be to have a current-year BMW.
  • Park With Ease: In the 2018 Audi Q3, you’ll see standard Audi Parking Systems Plus front & rear, which isn’t available on the 2017 BMW X1. Audi’s sensor-based parking system lets you know when you’re too close to something during parking maneuvers. You won’t find this feature standard or available on the 2017 BMW X1.
  • Affordable All-Wheel Drive: Both these small SUVs offer all-wheel drive (AWD) as an option, but adding Audi’s legendary quattro® AWD system only bumps you up to an MSRP of $35,000 in the 2018 Audi Q3, but adding BMW’s X-Drive to the 2017 BMW X1 (y’know, the system that serves as its namesake) will bring you up to an MSRP of $35,750.
If what you’re looking for is luxury appointments, exciting driving mechanics, better standard equipment, and features that matter, we think you’ll find that the 2018 Audi Q3 hits all the notes quite nicely.
