Image comparison: Audi Q3 2018 encounters BMW X1 F48

In recent years, has developed the new BMW X1 F48 to be a worldwide Bestseller that has exceeded all expectations. With the Audi Q3 2018, a new enemy into the game, the end to the success story of the X1 and instead, the place in the sun under the compact Premium SUV he tries to take over. The second Generation of the Audi Q3 is based like its predecessor on the technology from the VW-shelf, its MQB variant is the same as the VW Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq.

With a length of almost 4,49 meters, the Audi Q3 2018 extends beyond the BMW X1, F48, almost five inches, at the same time, three inches wide and nearly three inches shallower than the Munich. The larger dimensions at least in the volume of the trunk is not reading, here is the Audi Q3 with 530 up to 1.525 and the BMW X1 with 505 to 1,550 liters of practically eye-to-eye.

In the interior of the Q3 takes the Audi-concept and relies on multiple Displays. The digital instrument cluster with a 10.25 inches screen diagonal is on Board as standard, in the center console, Infotainment display with 8.8 or 10.1 inch for optional use. Also, the digital instrument cluster is even larger, as the Audi Virtual Cockpit, the screen measures 12.3 inches.

The engine range for the new Audi Q3 includes, for market launch in the autumn of 2018 with three petrol engines and one Diesel, covering a power range from 150 to 230 HP. An alternative to the standard front-wheel drive the quattro all wheel drive that can send needed power to the rear wheels. Other engines with less power are likely to follow, including a sporty Audi SQ3 is definitely conceivable.

On a split supply as in the case of BMW, where an alternative to the X1 is also almost as convenient, but much more independent and dynamic-drawn BMW X2 available is dispensed with Audi for the Moment.
