2018 BMW x3 vs 2018 Audi Q5 in Schererville, IN

2018 BMW X3 in Phytonic Blue Metallic. 

Interior of the 2018 BMW X3

You want power, space, and enough technology to make every drive worthwhile. Well, the 2018 BMW X3 offers all three, plus so much more. Compared to its competition, the 2018 Audi Q5, the X3 outperforms in almost every way. See this compact luxury SUV for yourself by stopping by BMW of Schererville today. You can take it out on a test drive with a member of our staff!

Our competition begins with a comparison between each luxury SUVs engine lineups. The Audi Q5 doesn’t have much of one, since it only offers its 2.0L TSFI® powertrain. Although it does achieve a commendable 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, which exceeds the BMW X3’s 248 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque being produced from its standard 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain, that is where the Q5’s superiority ends. In terms of efficiency, the Q5 won’t take you as far with its 27 MPG hwy1. On the other hand, you’ll enjoy long, leisurely rides in the X3 with its 29 MPG hwy2. You can choose to equip the X3 with the available 3.0L M Performance SAV® engine. This machine delivers a pulse-pounding 355 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque for your satisfaction.

One of the reasons you look into a SUV in the first place is because of the space that they offer. This rings true in the 2018 X3 with its 28.7 cubic ft. of room when all five seats are occupied. It may be tough to find enough space for your packages from The UPS Store with only 26.8 cubic ft. of cargo volume behind the rear seats of the Audi Q5. As the driver, you’ll also enjoy a standard 10-way power-adjustable front seat in the X3, which you can use to find your perfect comfort position. You’ll have less options in the Q5, since it only comes standard with an 8-way power-adjustable chair.

Your primary concern whenever you’re considering purchasing a vehicle is going to be safety. You want to make sure you and your loved ones are protected at all times, and are given some features to help you along the way. While both the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 have a standard backup camera to help you see any obstacles directly behind you, the X3 takes it a step further with its optional Surround View feature. From the comfort of the front seat, you’ll have a 360-degree view of the outside of the X3. You won’t find such a feature on any of the Q5’s models.

The clear winner of this 2018 BMW X3 vs 2018 Audi Q5 in Schererville, IN, comparison, is the BMW X3! For a better driving experience, contact us at BMW of Schererville by dialing 800-860-3545. We hope to hear from you soon!

Nick, the service advisor, explained the repairs to me so I understood them. The wait was not very long. My vehicle was presented to me completely repaired and clean. Nick always treats me nice and lets me know how repairs are progressing. I always try to see him when I bring my vehicle in.

Our overall sales experience was positive. I have pretty high standards for larger purchases especially with vehicles and would consider myself a fairly difficult customer to deal with. The team was very patient and we were able to put together a very reasonable lease deal. We left the dealership feeling very good about our decision which wouldn’t have been possible without the high value they clearly place on the sales experience.

BMW of Schererville have awesome, friendly, and kind people working there. They helped me with the car I liked and I got it financed with very low APR. BMW of Schererville fixed everything that was wrong with the car and still provided me with the fantastic deal. We bought 2013 bmw 328xi & 528xi and the cars work and drive great. Amanda was the salesperson that helped us a lot. Chris helped us with giving a great deal on the cars. Katherine was the finance manager and she made sure we got good deal with the cars. Strongly recommend BMW of Schererville.

Yesterday, I purchased my 5th BMW from this location. Chris Hardaway is truly the consummate Client Advisor! I had the most amazing experience believe it or not. He sent William, BMW Genius to pick me up from my home in Chicago. Once I arrived at the dealership, Chris was at the entrance to greet me. The auto purchasing process was yet again very smooth and swift, which I am told (by others) can be stressful. Everyone I interacted with was very pleasant. I cannot remember a time when everyone I met smiled and stopped to converse. The personal touch makes a world of difference. Well done. Until my return... Thank you Chris H. William, Daniel, Glenn and Sven! Monte W.

Just drove my X3 home. I appreciated the transparency of the transaction of buying my vehicle. Antonio was very helpful in finding the exact configurations I wanted. Unlike other dealerships that I have encountered, the staff all worked very efficiently to get me a great price. I am extremely happy with my whole experience from start to finish!

The staff was very professional and helped me determine what work I needed to have done. Shout out to Stephanie for her excellent customer service. She walked me through all of the work that I needed done and let me know what was imperative and what could wait. She was even willing to help me work on a budget for payment. The loner vehicle I got to drive was exquisite. Every person I came in contact with was professional and polite.
