North Olmsted drivers who are on the market for a luxury SUV have a few stellar options, with the 2020 Audi Q7 impressing many hopeful SUV-owners. But when you carefully run the match up of Audi Q7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV, the GLS still proves itself to be the car that excels in two important departments for SUV’s: power and space. Read below for a head-to-head comparison of these two vehicles, with vital specs and important details to keep in mind from Mercedes-Benz of North Olmsted.

Audi Q7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLS: Engine and Performance

There’s a lot to like in both vehicles in terms of their performance for Cleveland roads, but the Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV outranks the Q7 when it comes to standard performance features.

Audi Q7

  •  2 liter turbocharged engine gets you a standard 248 horsepower
  • You can max out the Q7 with 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that gets you a 335 horsepower
  • You need more than a trailer hitch to reach the 7,700 pound – you also need a trim upgrade.
  • 8-speed transmission

Mercedes-Benz GLS: 

  •  A 3.0L biturbo V6 engine is standard on the GLS 450 4MATIC®  gets you 362-hp – higher than any Q7 engine can go in that department.
  • With an equipped trailer hitch, this vehicle gets 7,700 pounds of towing
  • 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission

Audi Q7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLS: Space for Cargo

Drivers looking for SUV’s are looking for something that will fit a lot of friends and family for trips across Westlake. While both vehicles have seven seats, one of them gives you more overall space. The GLS outperforms the Q7 in this department and has impressive cargo space to boot.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS: 

  • Cargo Volume (seats up): 17.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (seats down): 84.7 cubic feet
  • Front Headroom: 39.4 inches
  • Rear Headroom: 40.2 inches

2020 Audi Q7: 

  • Cargo Volume (seats up): 14.2 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (seats down): 69.6 cubic feet
  • Front Headroom: 39.9 inches
  • Rear Headroom: 35.9 inches

As you can see, the only place where the Audi Q7 squeaks ahead of the GLS is in front headroom, while the rear headroom and immense cargo volume on the Mercedes GLS SUV make it hyper competitive.
