2017 Audi Q3 vs 2017 BMW X1 Specs

The 2017 Audi Q3 and 2017 BMW X1 are front-wheel drive cruisers delivering athletic acceleration and sharp handling. These fun-to-drive, sporty roadsters ride with confidence and control on highways, narrow city streets, and bumpy backroads alike, providing plenty of passing power and apt suspension systems that soak up most turbulence from uneven surfaces.

When you look underneath the hood of a 2017 Audi Q3 or 2017 BMW X1, you'll find vivacious turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engines that ride neck and neck in horsepower. An 8-speed automatic transmission sends power to the 2017 BMW X1's wheels. The 2017 Audi Q3 opts for a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission for sporty gear shifts and control.

For added traction and control, the 2017 Audi Q3 offers a quattro® all-wheel drive system, which sends engine power to the wheels with the most grip. The 2017 BMW X1 also offers an all-wheel drive system to help improve traction, but you'll be glad to have quattro® all-wheel drive when streets get slick around West Chester or Conshohocken, as it improves the 2017 Audi Q3's handling on unpredictable road conditions.
