2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2018 Audi Q5

Between the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE and the 2018 Audi Q5, you’ll find that you can have it all without paying extra when you opt for the GLE. Both models provide plenty of power, space, and entertainment for everyone, but only the Mercedes-Benz SUV doesn’t add on to the cost. Learn more about what each model can provide for your Hackettstown commute today at Mercedes-Benz of Newton.

GLE vs. Q5: Performance

For more power on the Hackettstown roads, you’ll want to opt for the Mercedes-Benz GLE. This model is built with a 329 hp, 3.0L V6 bi-turbo engine with an ECO-START®/STOP system for a more efficient drive. The Audi Q5 has a 252 hp, 2.0 TFSI® engine and a dual-clutch seven-speed S-tronic® automatic transmission for a strong ride, though not strong enough to outpower the GLE.

GLE vs. Q5: Interior

Inside, the new GLE provides up to 80 cubic feet of cargo space with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats down. The Q5 only provides up to 60.4 cubic feet cargo space with the 40/20/40 rear folding seat configuration. When it comes to technology and comfort, the Q5 requires a package upgrade, but the GLE gives you what you want. The GLE offers:

  • Mercedes me connect
  • Heated front seats
  • MB-Tex upholstery
  • Power tilt/sliding sunroof
  • Remote Start
  • Brake HOLD feature
  • Hands-free Bluetooth® interface
  • Optional leather seating

GLE vs. Q5: Safety

Safety in your new family-friendly SUV is the top priority. While the Audi Q5 gives you access to Audi pre sense® basic with emergency braking, rear cross traffic, and vehicle exit assist, the GLE provides plenty of safety innovations you won’t find in the Q5 including:

  • Active Brake Assist
  • Crosswind assist
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • available Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® cruise control
