Not Sure, Which car to buy?

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Audi Q3

    • Loaded with features - panoramic sunroof, electric seats, LED headlamps. Feels well loaded for the price.
    • Impressive build quality inside out. Feels built to last.

    BMW X3

    • The BMW X3 has solid build quality
    • Despite being a compact crossover, it offers adequate space at the rear
    • The sporty handling makes the X3 a fun to drive car

    Audi Q3

    • Interior design is beginning to show its age. Looks out of place on a Rs 40-lakh SUV.
    • Forget Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a simple USB port is missing.
    • High transmission tunnel makes the Q3 a strict four-seater
    • Not as fun to drive as its rivals. More power and heavier steering would've made it a lot more engaging.

    BMW X3

    • Though handling is good, the ride quality of the X3 isn't plush
    • There's a noticeable lag in power delivery from the engine of the X3
    • The larger 3.0-litre diesel engine is not available in the BMW X3
