Q. Which is better SUV between Q3 and X1?
  • The better pick here among the two would be Audi Q3 in diesel which is a great value for money, luxury car from Audi that does everything well while still looks more expensive than it actually is. Audi has managed to keep the low entry price for the Q3 range. But really the pick of the bunch is the new diesel. It’s a much more pleasant driving experience. On the other hand, the BMW X1 is the entry-level compact SUV from the German manufacturer that is a crowd favourite in India with its road presence and overall appeal.Do take the test drive for both the cars so that you can get a complete glimpse regarding the ease and comfort of driving.
  • Both are equally good. X1 has been upgraded already, but Q3 upgradation is on the cards! So, have to wait to compare!
  • An upgraded q3 is my choice.
