Audi Q3

The Audi Q3 slots in as the smallest SUV in the Audi lineup, providing Exton drivers with standard all-wheel drive, a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine, and a robust selection of tech and comfort features. The Audi Q3 differs from the XC40 in its exterior design, offering up a more classic elegance compared to the XC40 model's suave Scandinavian sleekness. Moving to the interior of the Audi Q3 finds a luxurious interior clad with heated leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and a 10-speaker audio system. Not too shabby for a base trim offering. Moving to the S Line ensures increased interior functionality thanks to a wireless smartphone charger, heated front seats, and an S Line interior design scheme with available Alcantara interior accents. The top of the Line Premium Plus trim includes a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a navigation system, the Audi virtual cockpit, a top-view camera system, and park-steering assist. While the Audi Q3 offers a strong set of interior features, it doesn't offer up the same performance options as the Volvo XC40, which might be something to consider if you're a Media driver that's after more power behind the wheel than 228 horsepower.


The BMW X1 is a sporty, lavishly luxurious compact SUV that keeps the options straightforward regardless of the trim selected. Options are straightforward because the BMW X1 is available in just two trim levels: sDrive28i and xDrive28i.

As far as interior features go, the base trim includes an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, push-button start, and automatic climate control. To really get into the luxury side of things, you'll have to opt for some upgrades. Indeed, opting for a panoramic moonroof, a head-up display, leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, and a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system are all potential options.
