Strap on your seatbelts and hold on tight, because the Mercedes-Benz GLS is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Complete with a spacious, luxurious interior and top-of-the-line performance, the GLS compares favorably against other top luxury SUVs. You may be familiar with the rivalry between Mercedes-Benz and Audi. The Volkswagen-owned luxury automaker certainly has its own reputable amenities in the Q7, but how do they compare to what the GLS has to offer? Find out here as we compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2019 Audi Q7!

Highlights in the 2019 GLS
It’s clear to see who wins the performance battle here. Under the hood of the 2019 GLS sits a 3.0L V6 biturbo engine, and it gets 362 horsepower as well as a towing capacity that far exceeds that of the Q7. This is important to point out because if you plan on using your SUV to tow larger loads, whether it be a boat, camper, ATVs, or what have you, you’ll want as much power as you can get. While you can upgrade trim levels in the Q7 to get more power, you’ll have to pay a lot more to get them. Meanwhile, the 7,500-lb towing capacity in the GLS comes standard in the base trim. Some of the other highlights in the 2019 GLS include:
- 8-inch central display screen
- Harman/Kardon® premium audio system
- Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
- 64-color ambient lighting system
- Rear-seat entertainment system
- DYNAMIC SELECT® driving mode selector
- Genuine wood trim
- And much more!
The Q7 doesn’t quite match up to the GLS. While this may be a disappointing reality for Audi fans, you’re more than welcome to hop on the Mercedes-Benz bandwagon.
