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!
