I have the Q7 and my wife drives an X5. The ride on the bmw is much sportier than the q. The q feels more luxurious and has an extremely quiet cabin. I also like the interface of the center console - esp the feature where it lets you write on the pad. If you like a sporty ride go bmw if you like a comfort ride go Audi. I also like the q5 looks over the x3. X3 seems like a stunted version of the x5.

Q5 just got a refresh so there maybe good deals on Pre refresh models. X3 should price out cheaper as BMW has better incentives. Q5 rides better but is less engaging.

Drive both and see which one drives and feels better. Which interior you like more etc

Of those two, the Q5. I've got an irrational hatred of the corporate BMW shifter and really dislike how dirt cheap their base interiors are.

I prefer the Audi; I didn’t like the way the X3 drove.

Look into an Audi SQ5 if budget allows, else Q5. An SQ5 will eat an X5 for lunch and twice on Sunday.

Test drive the Audi Q5 with a water bottle or coffee in the cup holder. You’ll buy the BMW.

Agreed with you until my interior was covered in coffee (regularly). I went Volvo XC60 in Oct so in all fairness, maybe Audi figured out the cup situation. Seat warmers, moonroof, and adequate cup holders are my only deal breakers.

All comes down to how you feel while you’re driving it

Had a Q5 for years. Got so bored of it. Switched it for a Volvo XC60 AWD and it’s surprisingly better/more interesting looking, zippier, and better tech than the Q5. Not the answer you’re looking for, but making a point that the Q5 lost its sexiness

Did the same in Oct!

I chose Q5 because it has Android Auto integrated. When I tried the X3 a couple years ago it only had the Apple drive app.

My mom drives an X3, and my aunt drives a Q5. I prefer the Q5, but I don’t hate the X3. It really comes down to personal preference.
