Audi’s all new Q3 has just been released, which was not unexpected considering Audi has a vehicle in every segment that BMW has one.

The new Q3 is certainly aesthetically pleasing, but when I first saw it, I didn’t have a strong reaction one way or the other. I think that is a function of the fact that like most Audis today, it is fairly similar to every other Audi product, especially the Q5. So while it’s not ugly, it is a bit booring to me.

Regardless, we bring you this photo comparison between the Audi Q3 and the BMW X1, a car which has been on the market for 2-3 years now. You be the judge! (Try voting in our poll above)

The turbo 4-cylinder N20 engine has impressed Autoweek in their first experience with it, in an X1 28i. They felt that it was terrifically refined, always urgent, with particularly strong low-end attributes and impressive flexibility across a wide range of revs. In addition, the N20′s power builds in a smooth, free revving fashion without any hint of turbocharger lag. Overall, they called this newest BMW engine pleasing to drive and highly efficient. Full review inside.

Some weeks ago, we brought you information on BMW’s new turbo inline 4 petrol engine (N20B20) making its debut in the X1 xDrive 28i. Reviews from the first new X1 xDrive 28i press drive event in Slovenia are slowly trickling in this week, so here’s a roundup so far.

In sum, all reviews out so far have nothing but good words for the new engine. The only drawback mentioned coming from the N52 is the engine sound. Other than that, all mags loved the low end torque which BMW apparently managed to combine with enough grunt at the higher revvs.

FYI, BMW has also hinted at the 1-series hatchback and the 3-series getting this engine when the new models launch later this year and early next year, respectively.

In this video, BMW experiments with sticker designs on the X1 and gauges public sentiment to the somewhat different, but non-radical look. We just like the video because it gives us some nice looks of the X1.
