See How the New Audi Q5 Stacks Up Against the New Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

In the world of luxury crossovers, German-made models like the Audi Q5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 are some of the most thrilling performers on the road. Both vehicles have smooth rides and agile handling. Here at Audi Columbia, we think the Q5 is a better compact SUV than the GLC 300. We believe that once people in Columbia compare both vehicles side-by-side, they'll agree that the Audi Q5 is roomier, more powerful, and comes with more standard features than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

The New Audi Q5 vs. the New Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

  • The Q5 Has More Passenger Space: While the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 has a fairly spacious interior, its sloping roofline severely cuts into rear headroom and impinges rear visibility. Taller drivers and passengers in Lexington, SC will prefer the Audi Q5 because it has more front head- and legroom than the GLC 300.
  • The Q5 Has More Standard Horsepower: The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 comes with a turbocharged 255-horsepower four-cylinder engine that has plenty of get-up-and-go. But people in Irmo who want quicker acceleration will like the Audi Q5's new turbocharged four-cylinder base engine, which puts out 261 horsepower.
  • The Q5 Has More Towing Capability: Chapin, SC drivers who often pull boats or campers behind their SUV will appreciate that the Audi Q5 can tow up to 4,400 pounds when properly equipped. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 only has a 3,500-pound tow rating.
  • The Q5 Has Standard Wireless Device Charging: When you're out and about, you don't want your smartphone to run out of juice. People in Florence will like that the Audi Q5 comes standard with a wireless smartphone charging pad. Wireless device charging is available in the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, but you have to pay more to get it.
