BMW X2 vs. Audi Q3 Sportback

Carscoops decided to compare the BMW X2 with the Audi Q3 Sportback and Q3 definitely gives the X2 a run for its money.

To start the Q3 is slight bigger than the X2 and has more trunk space.

How do they compare on paper?

For starters, the Audi is a tiny bit bigger, measuring 4,484 mm (176.5 inches) in length, 1,849 mm (72.8 inches) in width and 1,585 mm (62.4 inches) in height. Its wheelbase meanwhile is 2,680 mm (105.5 inches) long. The X2 on the other hand, is 4,360 mm (171.6 inches) long, 1,824 mm (71.8 inches) wide and stands 1,526 mm (60 inches) tall, with a 2,670 mm (105.1 inch) long wheelbase.

The Q3 Sportback also has a bigger trunk, with 530 liters (18.7 cu.ft) available to you with the rear seats upright. Fold everything and you get 1,525 liters (53.8 cu.ft) of space. The BMW has a notably smaller luggage compartment at 470 liters (16.6 cu.ft) with the seats in place and 1,355 liters (47.8 cu.ft) otherwise.
Both SUVs deliver the exact same performance regardless of which engine you choose.

In terms of performance, Audi is only unveiling two versions of the Q3 Sportback at launch – a 35 TDI s tronic model and a 45 TFSI quattro s-tronic variant. Here’s how the latter compares to a turbo gasoline X2:

– Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI quattro: 2.0L turbo, 227 HP (230 PS), 258 lb-ft (350 Nm), 0-62 in 6.5 sec

– X2 xDrive28i: 2.0L turbo, 228 HP (231 PS), 258 lb-ft (350 Nm), 0-62 in 6.5 sec

As you can see, you’ll get the same type of performance regardless of which crossover you buy.
Inside, the Q3 comes with a bigger infotainment display.

What about tech?

The dashboard of the Q3 Sportback is identical to the one in the regular Q3, meaning it features a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster as standard, and a 10.1-inch infotainment display. Pay extra and you can get the 12.3-inch instrument cluster instead, to go with your motion activated tailgate, ambient lighting and so on.

Interestingly enough, you can’t get the X2 with a fully digital gauge cluster, whereas its standard infotainment system only has a 6.5-inch display – the optional one measures 8.8 inches, which is still less than the standard one in the Audi.
Despite all of that I think I'd still pick the X2 because I prefer its overall styling.

X2 for me regardless. Always been a BMW owner and BMW dealers are far more common around me so servicing when required is convenient.
