Comparo – 2013 Q5 vs BMW X3

The Q5 ‘s most significant in the segment is the X3, and that SUV, like the Q5, hasn’t done too for its parent brand. Yet together two SUVs hold up the segment and whatever little excitement is until I expect Mercedes in with the GLK and prices it competitively.

second generation X3 is technically no new as it was launched in 2011 as a refreshed Yet, not having seen specific design on our roads too means it still gets attention from passerbys. attention is however not a reflection of it looks good, or not.

In my opinion it’s a non-inspiring something that you wouldn’t very passionate about. the upside down lip on the front or the flowing shoulder line runs from the front to the tail lamps, the overall is purely of a sedan raised on a high platform. It’s not neither is it handsome and that it for consumers.

Having said neither is the Audi Q5 a very design! It too lacks the personality should draw attention to it. As in the previous test, the Q5 sits the Q7 and the Q3 but lacks the persona that possesses.

I couldn’t make up my mind which is the better looking of the two the outside and I’d look elsewhere if styling was top of my shopping (Volvo XC60).

Step the cabin of the X3 and what you see is a fairly well-built ambience that is European. It’s standard BMW with a two-tone palette gives it a refined and sophisticated Yet in places the leather feels plastic and lacks the richness of the Q5.

The knobs don’t stand out as in the X3 as they do in the Q5 and the look and feel of the is much more luxurious in the Q5 in the X3.

Where space is concerned, the X3 out a bit ahead of the Q5 with more room for rear seat as well as more shoulder and room. In the BMW you also sit more which adds to the feeling of One critical plus point for the Q5 is its sunroof which offers a glass area, enhancing the of space.

Another interesting is that the armrest in the middle of the bench is placed lower in the X3 in the Q5. Why this is important is because in the X3 it more natural and therefore the seating position more Score one for the BMW’s ergonomics

The X3’s centre console protrudes into the rear cabin lesser than in the Q5 it less intrusive though in of functionality they both only air-con vents, a cubbyhole for loose change and receipts and a charging point.

SUVs are extensions of sedan the X3 is based on the 3 Series and the Q5 on the A5 coupe. means you get fairly composed and stable ride quality as is from any monocoque. There are and cons to both though. The X3 has handling abilities with a 50:50 weight balance both axles but in order to that superior margin the quality isn’t comfortable the suspension is stiff.

It’s not stiff enough to all the standard clichs to, yet it’s enough to make it uncomfortable. And it makes the Audi feel a magic carpet ride. The Q5 has spring and dampers in its latest and it’s better suited for the of our roads.

Ground clearance in SUV is almost the same which into poor off-roading and you really shouldn’t be trying to get sticky situations. Both also offer drive modes that alter steering, engine and transmission though only the X3 allows you to deselect traction control.

Both SUVs also electromechanically assisted steering which is in the interests of efficiency but differ in nature. Where the X3 is and more sensitive at slower the Q5 seems heavier at all speeds. the drive selector on the dynamic the Q5 feels the heavier of the two but also more direct.
