What's the Best Luxury Crossover SUV for Chicagoland Drivers: the BMW X3 or Audi Q5?

Prepare to understand the meaning of true luxury when you get behind the wheel of the 2016 BMW X3 at our Chicagoland dealership!

The 2016 BMW X3 offers the full scope of the luxury driving experience from its sophisticated style to breathtaking performance to first class interior. The BMW X3 is truly everything a luxury crossover should aspire to be. That leaves competitors like the Audi Q5 unable to keep pace with all the X3 has in store for drivers throughout Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Elk Grove Village, Arlington Heights, Bloomingdale, Elgin, Mount Prospect, and Bartlett, IL. 

The 2016 BMW X3 is designed for families, but engineered for drivers. Whether you favor efficiency or power, you'll have your choice among a turbocharged four-cylinder, six-cylinder or turbodiesel engine. Regardless of what's under the hood, the X3 leaves the Q5 in the dust by delivering exhilarating power and high-performance on the open road!

If you're seeking first class comfort, then, the X3 proves to be a far superior option than the Audi Q5. The X3's impeccably designed, modern cabin offers more passenger and cargo room than rivals like the Audi Q5. That way, you'll have ample room for five passengers and tons of space for your cargo carrying demands!

Of course, the 2016 BMW X3 stands out as a marvel of automotive technology. The X3 is available with a stunning array of cutting-edge tech features for your safety, comfort and convenience on the road. The X3 becomes your personal assistant with a wireless hotspot  and BMW's Mobile Office that provides touchscreen access to text messages, email, voice memos and beyond. No comparable option is available in the Audi Q5!

You'll also have your choice among options like integrated navigation, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sounds system, active park assist and blind spot monitoring. As you'll see below, the BMW X3 is truly the better choice than the Audi Q5 in all areas that are important to crossover drivers like you. Take a look:
