Q5 vs X3: Performance Specifications

The 2022 Audi Q5 and the 2022 BMW X3 have quite a bit in common under the hood. Both vehicles are powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. These engines come paired with an automatic transmission that allows for seamless traction and control in all driving conditions.

The Q5 also comes with a standard legendary quattro® all-wheel drive (AWD) system that provides advanced stability and traction control. In the X3, an all-wheel drive system is only an available add-on for the first trim level, which means you'll have to upgrade from the base trim in order to unlock AWD capability.

Plus, you'll miss out on hybrid efficiency in the BMW X3, which lacks even a partially electric option. Audi, on the other hand, continues to lead the automotive industry into the future with its plug-in hybrid option. Enjoy a whopping EPA-estimated 61 MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent) on top of 369 lb-ft of torque with this engine.1
