The Q5, meanwhile, has 40.2 inches of front headroom and 37.7 inches of rear headroom. Therefore, those same riders may feel a bit cramped inside this SUV.

There’s more cargo room inside the BMW, as well. When all the seats are up, you have 28.7 cubic feet of space. Fold that row down flat, and you have 62.7 cubic feet to work with—more than enough room for an umbrella, chairs, and other beach gear.

Unfortunately, you may be pressed to fit all your items inside the Audi. After all, it has just 25.1 cubic feet of cargo room behind the back row, then 53.1 cubic feet when that row is folded down.

Amenities Inside the X3 vs Q5

  • Heated rear seats
  • Heated steering wheel

The X3 also offers 14-way power front seats, so you can find your ideal seating position as quickly as possible.
