So i'm currently doing some research on the 2011 Q5 and the BMW X3 (i'm also looking at the MB GLK, but that doesn't come anywhere close to what i expect in a SUV vs the Q5/X3)
On paper, it looks like the X3 provides better fuel economy, lower starting price, more power, vs the Q5.
i'm wondering, for those who have already done the comparisons, what persuaded you to get the Q5 instead of the X3? Brand loyalty? Styling? or price? Quality?
so far, from doing my work, i'm 60% leaning towards the BMW, 40% for the Q5. I just want to make sure i'm making the right choice. I've never owned a BMW and not too sure of the quality and ease of use.
FYI, My wife and i are expecting towards the end of this year and this would be the car we would use for the baby.
