Its impressive features start under the hood — as the PHEV version of this model is capable of 362 horsepower* — and span to the cabin, where the Audi Q5 offers a haven of comfort and convenience. This SUV is equipped with technology designed with you in mind, such as a MMI® touch display with an intuitive, customizable screen for easy access to music, contacts and more.

Another SUV that has been making waves is the 2023 BMW X3. While this competitor is undoubtedly a fierce rival, we’re convinced that the 2023 Audi Q5 is still the better SUV. Take a look at the table below to see the two compared.

Although the 2023 BMW X3 puts up a good fight, it pales in comparison to the 2023 Audi Q5. When you choose the Audi Q5, you’ll have more choices when it comes to building your new SUV, since this model comes with three available engines. You’ll even have the option to make your Audi Q5 a PHEV, or plug-in hybrid, thanks to the available 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and  electric motor combination. If you choose the BMW X3, you won’t have the option of equipping it as a hybrid. On the inside, these models share some of the same features. For instance, they both come with standard Lane Departure Warning and 40/20/40 split fold-down rear seats. However, the Audi Q5 takes the lead once again, offering truly luxurious features like available front heated and cooled cup holders (which are not available on the BMW X3) and standard leather upholstery (which you’ll have to upgrade to get on the BMW X3). Finally, the Audi Q5 offers a maximum of 19 available audio speakers, as compared to the 16 available speakers on the BMW X3.

You’ll be glad you chose the 2023 Audi Q5 when you have all of these features at your fingertips. Test-drive your very own 2023 Audi Q5 at Audi Lakeland today.
