Audi Q5: Comparison against BMW X3

Audi Q5, BMW X3

Interesting comparison here of the Audi Q5 against the BMW X3.

For performance, the Audi’s new-for-2011 turbocharged four-cylinder makes its own V-6 almost obsolete. The front-drive, 211-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo four makes more torque than the 270-hp V-6, and gets better gas mileage too, of 20/27 mpg. It’s a gutsy performer with 0-60 mph times of just over 7.0 seconds, a bit slower and coarser than the six, but considerably less expensive in some trims.
