Audi Q7 vs Mercedes Benz GLS Performance Capabilities

SUVs were built to take you to places you may have only dreamed about. Both of these models have rugged exteriors and impressive ability to tackle nearly any terrain that you may encounter along the way.

Both the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes Benz GLS offer selectable drive modes, so no weather condition or uneven terrain can hold you back. If you choose the Mercedes Benz GLS, you'll have four different drive modes to choose from with their DYNAMIC Select system: ECO, Comfort, Sport, and Off-Road.

If four drive modes aren't enough for you, then opt for the Audi Q7 that gives you seven different drive modes to choose from.

Thanks to Audi drive select, you can choose from Dynamic, Comfort, Auto, Individual, Offroad, Allroad, and the available Offroad/Lift setting.1

The ability to select one of these seven drive modes gives drivers of the Audi Q7 a versatile, personalized driving experience that can change with their lifestyle needs.

Unique Design

When it comes to driving a luxury SUV, you don't need extra thrills and frills to let other drivers know your luxury status. The emblem on the front of the Singleframe® grille of the Audi Q7 is enough to let other drivers know you mean business.

The interior design of the Audi Q7 allows for a more comfortable flow and overall experience. This can be credited to the standard heated 8-way power front seats. These luxury seats also include a 4-way power lumbar.

While the Mercedes-Benz GLC also comes with standard heated front seats, drivers of this SUV won't get the tailored seat position as they would with the Q7 since the GLC only comes standard with a 4-way power adjust.

With the Audi Q7, you'll find the standard MMI® touch response system. This system features two center screens: an upper 10.1-inch screen for infotainment and navigation and a lower 8.6-inch screen for climate control, comfort, and more. Being equipped with two screens eliminates the need for buttons, dials, and other controls.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC also has a large center touchscreen. However, with the GLC you'll only have access to one screen instead of two.

State-of-the-Art Safety

Keeping everyone inside your vehicle safe is the goal for all drivers. Sometimes, though, the unexpected happens and it may pull your attention away from the road. To provide additional protection for luxury SUV drivers, both the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes Benz GLS have enhanced safety features.

These two SUVs have available features that can help bring your vehicle to a stop if necessary, check your blind spots, and provide parking assistance. If you're searching for a safety feature that acts as your personal co-pilot no matter the time of day, you can put away your binoculars and say hello to the available night vision assistant of the Audi Q7.

Using infrared and thermal-imaging technology, this feature enables you to see pedestrians and larger animals that cross your path. If they're within 300 feet of your Audi Q7, you'll be alerted, so you can adjust to the situation accordingly. Unfortunately for Mercedes Benz GLS drivers, there's no comparable feature.
