2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs 2020 Audi Q5

Find your future luxury SUV here at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead. But should you get the popular 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC, or go with the 2020 Audi SQ5? Let’s find out! We’ll compare the base trims of both models to give you an idea of which vehicle may interest you the most.

If you are looking for a powerful vehicle, both models are solid options. While the 2020 Audi Q5 has a reliable 248 horsepower, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC does have a bit more with its 255 hp. Even so, you won’t notice much difference when you drive the two. However, there are other technologies that you might want to check out, such as Adaptive Cruise Control. If you are looking for this technology, you’ might want to check out the GLC. While the Q5 does have it on other trims, you cannot get it on the base trim like you can with the GLC. Let’s take a closer look.

Advantages of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Much like the Adaptive Cruise Control, you’ll find cooled and ventilated front seats as an option in the GLC, but once again you’ll need to move up a trim in the Q5 in order to get these features. However, if you are looking for genuine leather seats, you may actually want to opt for the Audi Q5, since you won’t find it on the GLC. Similarly, you won’t be able to get a sunroof on the GLC either, so if that’s a feature you need to have, you’ll once again want to opt for the Audi Q5.
