    Q. Which is better between BMW X1 and Audi Q3?
    • Audi Q3 has been discontinued and no longer available in the Indian new car market. If we talk about BMW’s X1, it might not have changed enough on the outside for you to distinguish it from the outgoing model in one glance, but the changes lie where they matter. Under its skin. The refinement of the engine and ride quality mean the X1 will not only please you but also others around you who wouldn’t mind spending time in that cabin. BMW had the chance to give you more bragging rights with this facelift by making the feature list meatier. But instead, they chose to focus on making the X1 a better package for the family as well, without corroding its core fun-to-drive nature. Overall, the X1 is the enthusiast’s pick in the segment, but now your family will also be enthusiastic to be driven around in it.Moreover, you may check out 2020 BMW X1 Diesel: Road Test Review for better clarity.
    Q. Which one better segment in suv class Audi Q3 upcoming 2019 modelor Mercedes Benz GLA class 2019?
    • When it comes to the luxury from the outside as well as inside of the cabin, then there is no match to the Mercedes GLA class but if you are looking for a car with a rugged and tough look with the compatibility to offroad then we would suggest going with Audi Q3. The Mercedes provides the best in class Luxury features and beauty you won't take your eyes off. The Audi Q3 is the aggressive SUV which would let you down on the tough roads with its beefier looks.
    • We quattro is a proper SUV from Audi its main entry level car apart from A3.An allrounder .Gla is tagged as sports with nice interiors bit cramped rear gives my verdict in favour of Q3 more over the aftersales experience from Audi I'd nice.
    • Audi is no match to Mercedes in any luxury class. If we talk about BMW we may still compare but Audi is just not luxury class in comparison of its features and comforts and safety compared to a Merc.
