The 2016 BMW X3 Continues to Challenge the Status Quo Among its Segment

The 2016 BMW X3 Goes Head to Head with the 2016 Audi Q5

When BMW first set out to build the new 2016 BMW X3, they committed themselves to building a crossover that would challenge the status quo. They wanted to design a vehicle that offered the ultimate in versatility, desirable amenities and top of the line safety features. Fortunately, BMW was able to do so successfully, making it quite easy for the X3 to take on competitors such as the Audi Q5. Read on below to learn more...


The 2016 BMW X3 vs. The 2016 Audi Q5

Beautifully Appointed and Designed with Your Needs in Mind

Step inside the BMW X3 and you'll find a host of luxurious appointments. From its Burl Walnut Wood trim to its Pearl Gloss Chrome accents, the X3 is as beautiful as it gets. Unfortunately, the Audi Q5 falls short of such interior trims.

Unlike the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 comes standard with a host of functional storage compartments. From its luggage nets to its cargo rails and multiple fastening points, the BMW X3 keeps being organized on-the-go an easy feat.

The BMW X3 Comes Brimming with Tech-Savvy Amenities

For many area drivers, a vehicle's tech features are what drive their buying decision. If you're hoping to purchase a vehicle that offers standard Bluetooth connectivity along with a USB port, we suggest putting the X3 at the top of your shopping list. Sadly, the Audi Q5 does not offer Bluetooth standard and is unavailable with a USB port.

Bluetooth connectivity isn't all the X3 has to offer though. With the BMW iDrive system with an on-board computer, touchpad Controller and 8 programmable memory buttons, you'll enjoy a wealth of technology at your fingertips. Unfortunately for the Q5, iDrive is exclusive to the BMW brand.

Drive with Confidence Behind the Wheel of the 2016 BMW X3

Unlike the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 puts your safety at a premium by coming with vital features such as BMW Assist eCall and an SOS button so that you request emergency services if you've been in a collision.

While both vehicles do come with a Roadside Assistance Program, only the BMW X3 offers unlimited mileage to take advantage of its many features so that you can enjoy complete confidence behind the wheel.

With its many interior features and safety reassurances, the 2016 BMW X3 is the perfect choice for Mechanicsburg, Lancaster, Carlisle, Harrisburg and York area drivers. If you would like to learn more about this year's X3 and all that is has to offer, we invite you to visit our showroom in Mechanicsburg, PA today.
