It's no secret that drivers throughout Lynden, WA and Mount Vernon, WA appreciate a good SUV when they see one. With more and more drivers choosing SUVs and crossovers that are on the petite side and easy to park, there's no shortage of options available to choose from.

But the Audi Q3 comes out ahead when compared side by side with these competing models. In style, design, features, and more, our compact SUV is the best option for any Bellingham, WA driver. Read on to learn more.

The Audi Q3 vs. the BMW X1

  • Standard all-wheel drive. Whether you have a long commute in Anacortes, WA or a short one, when the roads are slick or wet and you need extra traction, all-wheel drive can be your best friend. With the Audi Q3 the added peace of mind of all-wheel drive is standard, meaning you'll get it regardless of which trim level you choose. But the BMW X1 doesn't offer AWD standard and you'll have to spend extra and request it to get it on their SUV.
  • Premium luxuries. Spoil yourself and your passengers with the Audi Q3, which comes with more of the high-end luxuries drivers want as standard equipment. Starting at the base model Q3, you can expect a range of sought-after features, including leather upholstery and heated seats. But the BMW X1 doesn't have leather upholstery standard and heated seats are only something you can get if you add on pricey options.
  • Standard safety features. The Audi Q3 also has more standard safety technologies than the BMW X1, with a healthy roster that includes lane departure warning, automatic high beam control, automatic emergency braking, and frontal collision mitigation. The X1 gets some of these standard, but it's also missing some driver favorites.

The Audi Q3 vs. the Lexus NX 300

  • Cargo space. Golf clubs or groceries, when you need space for your gear, the Audi Q3 is there for you, with more room for cargo than the Lexus NX 300. While the Q3 can hold up to 23.7 cubic feet of gear, the NX 300 has space for only around 17 cubic feet.
  • All-wheel drive. As with the BMW comparison before it, the Q3 also bests the NX 300 when it comes to all-wheel drive. Score the bonus of AWD standard with every Q3 you purchase, but you'll have to request it as an option if you consider the Lexus NX 300.
  • Standard features. Always the leader when it comes to supplying drivers with the high-end features and amenities they want, Audi equips every Q3 with an incredible list of standard creature comforts that includes leather upholstery, heated seats, a power-operated liftgate, and more. But you'll have to move up trims or add on options to get the same level of amenities on the NX 300 as you can expect standard with the Q3.
