Audi RS Q3 vs BMW 330d & Merc A45

Which leaves the BMW and the Mercedes-Benz. The xDrive system on a car like the 330d Touring is, for me, a bit of a no-brainer. Extra security, at a reasonable cost, an addition that makes an already beautifully capable and rounded car even better. If you need space, pace and distance-munching ability to cruise to a ski chalet, then there are few cars to beat it - especially as it is still reasonable fun when you get to the mountain passes.
