2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® vs 2018 Audi Q7
Larger SUVs are usually seen as a low-key alternative to minivans. Some might consider them a family wagon for those looking to break free from the stereotype associated with minivans. When you’re dealing with luxury SUVs, however, there is much to be seen and appreciated in them. Need proof? Here’s some. Check out the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® vs 2018 Audi Q7.
The performance edge in this one goes to the 2018 GLS 450 4MATIC®. This SUV beats out its rival in both horsepower and torque, meaning that you’ll have more performance and power capabilities on the road. In addition, the 9-speed automatic transmission in the GLS 450 4MATIC® gives you a smoother gear change and better top-end fuel efficiency than the 8-speed in the Q7. This is ideal when you’re driving a vehicle with seven people and any extra ounce of power is appreciated.

PRESAFE® in the 2018 GLS 450 4MATIC®
Leading the charge for the luxury full-size SUV segment is a highly-capable and safe GLS 450 4MATIC®. It comes standard with Mercedes-Benz’s own PRESAFE® feature, which is only available in Mercedes-Benz models. An industry first, PRESAFE® makes every effort to ensure your safety by activating whenever a crash seems imminent. The system automatically closes all windows and the sunroof, adjusts the front headrests and also tightens the front seatbelt pretensioners. While this of course will not necessarily prevent bodily harm, it is a great start toward minimizing the events of a collision. Just one more way Mercedes-Benz is looking out for your well-being.
