Your travel needs can change from day to day. On Monday, you may need extra space in the back to pick up your new piece of furniture after work. On Wednesday, however, you may need lots of passenger space to accommodate your buddies after hockey practice. As your needs change, the BMW X3 and the Audi Q3 can accommodate them.

Room for Your Crew

Let’s look at the interior dimensions of the BMW X3 vs. Audi Q3 to see which is best suited for you!

When you’re looking for additional passenger room, the BMW X3 is the way to go. This model provides extra room throughout the cabin that the Audi Q3 can’t match.

Got Gear?

Additionally, the X3 offers more cargo room, which makes it easier to bring home extra groceries or pack an extra bag when the rear seats are upright. Since you may sometimes need as much cargo space as possible, both the X3 and the Q3 come equipped with 40/20/40 split fold-down seats that let you customize your cargo area.

Take advantage of this feature to obtain a maximum cargo capacity of 48 cubic feet with the Audi Q3. Want even more space? Then, the BMW X3 and its 62.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume is the way to go.
