BMW X3 BENEFITS VS. AUDI Q5
  • The BMW X3 has the Q5 beat from nose to back end by 2.3 additional inches. The wheelbase is also longer on the X3 which leads to 1.9 more cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up than the Audi Q5 has.
  • BMW has a fast shifting 8-speed sport automatic transmission which is much quicker to engage than Audi's 7-speed dual clutch transmission which can lag when engaging. You will experience a much smoother and more comfortable drive in the BMW because of this.
  • Go further with your tank of gas in the BMW which features 29 mpg highway compared to Audi's 27 mpg highway.
  • The BMW is made in America and the Audi is not.
  • Despite being 105 pounds heavier than the Q5, the BMW X3 is only 0.1 seconds slower to 60mph, allowing you to quickly cruise the streets from O'Fallon to Belleville.
  • With the BMW Genius App, BMW Genius Hotline, and on-site BMW Geniuses at Newbold BMW, X3 drivers have unlimited access to specialists that can help with anything from pairing their Smartphone to using voice control.
  • Car and Driver said that the Q5 feels slighly unsettled on the expressway as the nose seems to drift to and fro with slight murmurs through the steering wheel.

 BMW ULTIMATE CARE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
Arguably the largest win for the BMW X3 is the complementary maintenance program and how it benefits the overall cost of ownership.
The Ultimate Care Plan comes standard on the BMW X3 for the first 3 years or 36,000 miles which extends well past Audi's program of 1 year or 10,000 miles.
 
Ultimate Care covers a wide range of maintenance items such as engine filter, engine oil, brake fluid, spark plugs, remote control / key battery and more. With this expansive coverage, the total cost of ownership becomes much lower for the BMW X3 compared to the Audi Q5. Newbold BMW's service center is proud to service BMW X3s with the Ultimate Care plan.
2019 BMW X3 EXTERIOR, INTERIOR & TECHNOLOGY
EXTERIOR: DISTINCTIVE BY DESIGN
Three distinct body styles give design options to BMW customers. The xLine allows drivers to go rugged with accentuated 18-inch Y-Spoke wheels and exterior trim elements. Bumper add-ons and rocker panels create a satin aluminum appearance. When selecting the Luxury body style, your BMW will shine with dress-to-impress design. High-gloss Chrome accents highlight the body from grille to tailpipe. Lastly, the M Sport body style gives a sense of performance flair. With larger M Double-spoke wheels, precision-engineered aerodynamics, high-gloss roof rails, and Shadowline exterior trim, your X3 will drive and look like the high-performance machine it is.

INTERIOR: PACK FOR ANY DESTINATION
The BMW X3 is spacious enough to pack for any destination. With 62.7 cubic feet of storage thanks to split fold-down rear seats, this Sports Activity Vehicle can fit it all. With the optional factory-installed trailer hitch the BMW X3 becomes ready for a broad range of BMW Accessories. The 2019 BMW X3 seats five and comes standard with leatherette upholstery and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. Upgrades to leather upholstery and 14-way power-adjustable front seats are available. The back row is spacious as well and provides ample space for even the tallest of passengers. Interior features are endless such as the optional navigation system with iDrive, gesture control, head-up display, and wireless charging and WiFi Hotspots.

TECHNOLOGY: AT THE FOREFRONT OF SAFETY
Protection is backed by the technology in the BMW X3. The suite of standard driving features includes Park Distance Control and Active Guard with Frontal Collision Warning for added comfort and confidence on every drive. Cruise control has added safety as well in the Driving Assistant Plus Package. This type of cruise control continually monitors traffic conditions and automatically slows and stops your BMW when necessary. Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance is another optional feature with the BMW X3. This feature keeps your BMW at center lane while traveling at highway speeds. If it senses a potential side collision, automatic steering input helps guide you away from danger.
