If you’ve long been searching for a luxury compact SUV with plenty of power, technology, and space to go around, give some thought to the 2019 BMW X1! Here at BMW of Schererville, we’ve seen countless drivers fall head over heels for this model. Rather than just taking our word for, check out this comparison of the X1 and the 2018 Audi Q3 before visiting us at 1400 US Highway 41 in Schererville, IN.

Performance

Surely, you’re on the hunt for a ride that won’t fail to get your blood pumping when you step on the gas. With the 2019 X1 as your reliable companion, this won’t be a concern. Its standard 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine unleashes a substantial 228-hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, proving that it has what it takes to thrill. On the other hand, things might not seem as exciting in the Audi Q3, as its comparable 2.0L turbo system only produces 200-hp and 207 lb.-ft. of torque. As a result, it takes 8.2 seconds to go from 0 to 60 MPH. Meanwhile, the X1 wastes no time, getting you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds1!

Safety

If you plan on taking the 2019 BMW X1 everywhere you go, then you’ll most likely want some reassurance that it’s equipped to protect you and your loved ones from harm. Thankfully, there’s no need to fret, as this luxury SUV is loaded with plenty of safety features. For instance, Pedestrian Detection comes standard as part of BMW’s Active Driving Assistant2, helping you stay more aware of your surroundings. Also included in this package is Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, which supplies stopping force automatically when you’re unable to in time. Although the 2019 Audi Q3 offers similar advancements, these won’t be found in the base trim, putting this vehicle a notch or two below its rival from BMW.

Capacity

To really earn your admiration and consideration, the BMW X1 steps up its game when it comes to interior space. Whether you’re sitting upfront or in the back, you’ll have ample space to stretch your legs out, with 40.4 and 37.0 inches of legroom offered, respectively. That way, you don’t have to worry about cramps or aches spoiling the trip to Fairground Park with the whole crew. If you’re driving in the Audi Q3, then you and your guests might feel a bit uncomfortable in the 40.0 and 31.1 inches of legroom in the front and back, respectively. Plus, the SUV from Audi only provides up to 50.3 cubic ft. of storage space, while the BMW X1 has you covered with a maximum of 58.7 cubic ft. of cargo room.

Has this comparison between the 2019 BMW X1 vs 2018 Audi Q3 near Valparaiso, IN, convinced you to take home the X1? If so, make it a priority to visit BMW of Schererville to see this stunner in action! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at 800-860-3545.
