2022 BMW X3 vs. 2022 Audi Q5 in Edmonton, AB

The BMW X3 is back for the 2022 model year, and now that's joined our inventory with a restyled exterior, we thought it only natural to compare this luxury SUV to a popular rival in the new Audi Q5. Both these 2022 models are easy on the eyes and boast elegant cabins and refined powertrains. If you're located in our home of Edmonton or St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Beaumont, Leduc, Spruce Grove, Devon, or Stony Plain, AB, find out how the 2022 BMW X3 measures up against the Q5 below and visit Edmonton BMW online to compare other models to our new SUV.

Safety & Technology

Both these SUVs hit the market with excellent safety ratings, with our model getting the nod in driver-assist technology in the 2022 BMW X3 vs. 2022 Audi Q5 battle. While the Audi Q5 offers a handful of the basics in its standard driver-assist suite, the new BMW X3 SUV comes with a forward-collision warning system that pairs with automatic emergency braking, as well as a lane departure warning function, among other things, to keep you from drifting out of your lane.

This year's X3 is just as generous in the infotainment department, thanks in part to a sprawling 10.3-inch touchscreen display with smartphone integration. An in-dash navigation system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a USB input, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability are all included in this new BMW SUV, with an available wireless charging pad freeing your centre console of cords and clutter. The 2022 Audi Q5, by comparison, offers a respectable infotainment suite of its own, but you'll have to pay a premium for several features that already come standard in the X3.


The latest X3 packs a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine under its hood for 248 horsepower, as well as a silky-smooth automatic transmission. Thrill-seekers craving extra pep can opt for a 3.0-litre turbo option with over 380 horsepower, and each of these refined powertrains offers swift acceleration, a responsive ride, and thrifty fuel economy, with the X3 base engine netting a combined 9.3 L/100km. Whatever your configuration of choice, you'll enjoy first-rate cornering ability, a balanced ride, and athletic handling, all while braving bumpy patches of road without losing composure. The 2022 Audi Q5, on the other hand, gets a standard 201-horsepower turbo engine - considerably less than the X3 - with a 261-horsepower option available for upgrade. While its ride is smooth and composed, the Q5's driving dynamics aren't nearly as exciting as the X3's, making it better suited for highway cruisers instead of driving enthusiasts.

    Interior & Exterior Style

    This year's X3 returns with loads of new style points, beginning with a revamped grille and lighting in both the front and rear. BMW has also updated this SUV's front and rear bumpers and its exhaust tips, all while offering stylish new wheel designs. Add in some elegant bodywork and a lined, sculpted hood, and the 2022 BMW X3's restyled exterior is a sight to behold. As for the 2022 Q5, this Audi rival is easy enough on the eyes, but its design remains a little too understated for the luxury SUV segment, and its front end isn't nearly as bold as the X3's.

    As for their interiors, both these SUVs get refined, upscale designs, but while the Audi Q5's cabin is both quiet and subtle in its elegance, the 2022 BMW X3 separates itself from its foe with opulent materials and numerous available comforts for a personalized luxury experience. A stunning dash design boasts a large infotainment display that's cleverly angled toward the driver's side, with wood accents and faux-leather dash and door trims available to give the X3's cabin even more refinement. You can also treat your BMW SUV's supportive seats to rich leather upholstery, with 10-way power-adjustability providing the driver and front passenger with personalized comfort. Whatever your pleasure, the 2022 BMW X3 has it all.
