2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Audi Q7

Match the 2019 Audi Q7 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLS, and you’ll find both are roomy three-row SUVs, however, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV provides more advanced safety and driver assists, as well as brawnier performance. See how these luxury SUVs fare against one another in our head-to-head comparison! 

GLS vs. Q7: Performance & Towing 

The new Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV and Audi Q7 are both top performers in their class. Yet, when you take a closer look at their specs and features, the GLS performance sets itself apart. Review their specs below: 

  • Towing Capacity: While the Audi Q7 can tow up to 3,493 kg, the GLS can tow 3,500 kg with its optional trailer hitch. 
  • Engine: A 362-hp 3.0L biturbo V6 engine comes standard on the GLS 450 4MATIC®. The Audi Q7 2.0T Premium gets a weaker 252-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder. 
  • Transmission: You’ll enjoy smoother shifting on Nepean-Barrhaven roads behind the wheel of the GLS, thanks to its 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission. The Q7 offers fewer gear ratios with an 8-speed automatic.

GLS vs. Q7: Safety Features

When it comes to safety, both have systems that take preventative measures to protect occupants in a collision. However, the Mercedes-Benz GLS comes with other safety features that can’t be found on the Audi Q7, including:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: This system monitors driver drowsiness using over 70 different parameters, and then uses audio and visual alerts if it senses your driving habits have changed. 
  • Crosswind Assist: Using the Electronic Stability Program, this feature detects strong lateral gusts when your vehicle is travelling at high speeds and helps your vehicle stay its course. 
  • MAGIC VISION CONTROL: Laser-cut holes in the wiper blades allow for washer fluid to be sprayed directly in front of the blade. This prevents the wiper spray from obscuring your vision while cleaning your windows.
