BMW X3 v Audi Q5 v Volvo XC60: UP-HILL DRAG RACE & which is best OFF-ROAD!
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Have you ever wondered how three of the most popular family SUVs can perform off-road? Well, we have, so we made this video! We’ve got the BMW X3 going up against the Audi Q5 & Volvo XC60 across a series of six challenges to see which is the ultimate family car off-roader.

So how do they compare on paper? Well starting with the X3, it’s the ‘30e’ edition, so it’s powered by a 2-litre petrol engine coupled with an electric motor to deliver 292hp and 420Nm of torque. It weighs about 1,990kg and costs approximately £49,000.

Next up is the Audi Q5, which has a 2-litre turbo petrol engine under the bonnet to produce 265hp and 370Nm. It weighs less than the BMW, coming in at 1,880kg, and it’s cheaper too, costing around £43,000.

And finally we have the Volvo XC60. With a 2-litre turbo diesel up front, the XC60 puts down 197hp and 420Nm of torque. It’s weight and price is pretty similar to the Audi, at 1,900kg & £43,000 respectively.

So what do you think - will the most powerful car in the line-up, the X3, snatch it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    So the BMW is a hybrid, Audi is a Petrol, and Volvo is a diesel. Seems like a bizzare comparison video when the selected powertrain options are so much different...

    Sorry but why are you not comparing Hybrid against Hybrid to be a little bit fair in weight for example. Diesel vs. diesel and petrol vs. petrol.

  • JustFun598

    TBH these should be done by same driver in all of the cars, because not everyone is equally skilled obviously, which pretty much affects the scores and outcome.

    I thought Volvo had discontinued the diesel. You should have take the Volvo hybrid and gotten to test the electric rear axle.


    Totally stupid comparision because if own one of those cars, you have to take care about how not to damage them. Really stupid to make off road race ...

    Fun fact - the "quattro" in the Q5 is more closely related to the Haldex system in the Volvo than it is the traditional permanent Torsen system in Audi's of old!

    The video is awesome! That BMW has great suspension! The Volvo is lower to the ground so it has less suspension. My dad has a Land Rover Discovery 02. We only drive it if we think are other cars are going to get stuck, or we want to off road, because it guzzles gas. For are next car it’s going to be a Grey Tesla Model X Plaid with 7 seats. You make very good high quality videos. Thank goodness you made these! Other wise I don’t know what I would do!

    From when X-drive is an off-road sistem? At min 12:31 volvo have advised to go SLOW-SLOW.. Probably Volvo even now has that noise at the door from that torsiojn and say about BMW: Oh the bmw has slipped, even if the door is oke let give 1 point. :))))) Good logic! :))))) Even so, the bmw is so "bad", that audi with their Quattro in hole history haven't beat the bmw rear propulsion in sale. Although Audi is in VW garden while BMW it has their own garden.. And Volvo with all their safety in history, was unable to sustain itself in sales.. It was sold and bought, that volvo doesn't even know whose it is anymore.. :)))) Buy Audi with Quattro dieselgate tehnology progress.. :))) If you want to learn something about X-drive system and for what was born, look at your own test Where X-drive Knocked Out audi and volvo from far, at all your test. I recomand that video not because im a bmw fun or a hater what you probably say, but because to learn who is looking at that video for what is xdrive ment to be. And learn once and for all that xdrive is an inteligent 4x4 sistem, but for dry road. If enybody whant to compare xdrive with another 4x4 sistem compare at dry roads not for offroad where xdrive was not designed. I will be so happy if all the people buy audi and volvo and let that bed scor of bmw, for a few of us. :))))) Have and nice day and don't forget that xdrive is NOT for OFF-ROAD.. You are to many who don't understand xdrive system is for.. Because you have't read about that.

    Had the Audi 2019 model and no thanks! My wife has the 18 model x3 and it’s better in every way! Audi is rougher on the road, feels low to the ground, transmission took forever to change. While the x3 is super smooth feels taller and the tranny is just flawless. And I can keep going. But for now no more Audi until we’ll see a completely new model. Facelift doesn’t fix the issues I had with it.

    15:35 kierowca audi i volvo się nie zatrzymali to i przeszły gładko. kierowca w BMW postanowił sobie to przejechać na "półbiegu" na tyle wolno aż doszło do zatrzymania pojazdu. A mimo tego jakoś nie sprawiło to problemu aby spokojnie ruszyć i pojechać dalej.
