      New Mini SUV - BMW X1 or Audi Q3

      Hi Guys

      I am planning to invest into a luxury mini suv. Well I call it mini, since its not really that huge.
      Vehicles I had shortlisted :

      1. BMW X1 - sDrive20D xLine

      2. Audi Q3 - Premium

      Need any owners in India particularly to say more about running and maintenance of the vehicles.
      And any plus minus anyone could tell more on.

      Thanks for views and suggestions beforehand !

      AFAIK major difference between these two is X1 is RWD with AWD support whereas Q3 is FWD with AWD support. So see if you want to have joy of RWD or want to continue with typical FWD despite of spending that much of amount. I would rather pick 320 sedan.

      Audi Q3 for me. Not because of any special feature of amazing performance, but just because I like those 4 rings more than blue and white pie-chart!

      Well you can also include volvo v40 cross country in ur list.
      Since your worried about maintenance, volvo will be a little dearer than the germans.
      Test drive all the cars to get a clear picture and then decide.

      I tried V40 but wasnt impressed. It was put off for the technology and interiors you get in V40. Secondly, car is more comparable to Merc Class A or BMW 1.

      I wanted someone who is driving Audi Q3 , or X1 more to comment on how the vehicle been going off-road or in hills , or rocky roads.
      After sales service.
      Performance. Any plus or minus anyone can say ?

      I'm all about sharing the road
      with other drivers—as
      long as they use the part
      that's behind me.

      Get the X1! All new car, more FTD and looks great. You can also consider GLA. All three cars : new X1, Q3 and GLA are FWD.
      BMW Maintenance is easier on the pocket compared to Merc. It is also proven to be more reliable among the German trio.
