2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 Audi Q8

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC follows the tradition of being one of the brand’s best-selling luxury vehicles. The German automaker offers a couple of updates for the GLC since its release back in 2016. This year’s version will have better exterior, more impressive interior and tech features, and a new engine lineup.

The 2019 Audi Q8 is a luxury flagship crossover that chose to defy the trends. Its SUV capabilities are blended with a few sedan characteristics and the result is well-received by the public.

Design & Style

On its exterior, the GLC now has standard LED headlights and light patterns. The grill slats are new and it has a mesh backdrop. A chrome-finished faux skid plate and more chrome on the window sills were added. The interior is also revamped to look more sophisticated and smart.

The Q8 has a conservative approach to its styling. It generally took the styling cues of the Q7 but with a sculpted rear end. The designers tried to remedy the bulky rear doors by adding a few creases and arches. While it looks quite plain, the wider front and its imposing nose gave it some character.

Technology & Safety

The tech features of the GLC are added with the new COMAND® touchpad. It has its own Interior Assistant which is their version of the BMW’s Gesture Control System. The IA has a revamped voice command function to make various functions work. It is cool that the user can set personal speech patterns to voice the commands.

The infotainment system of the Q8 is also strong with the sleek MMI system. The sound quality from its standard audio system, however, is far from great. The voice control feature is a little more than the average but cannot be used for adjusting important systems such as ventilation and the seat heaters.

Performance

The GLC base model already has an impressive 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This power is enough to demonstrate a spirited driving even at highway speeds. The engine range is added with mild-hybrid technology. This means that the GLC can be assisted by an electric powertrain to boost not only its performance but also fuel economy.

A V6 engine is a standard for the Q8 and it delivers an impressive 335 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque. it does a decent job at accelerating but it tends to get sluggish and not too responsive on low speeds.

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt that the 2019 Audi Q8 may look impressive because of its engine. It, however, lacks the fun spirit that the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC has. The Q8’s lackluster approach for its looks is a significant turnoff since a luxury car is expected to look extra great. The GLC, on the other hand, gets a lot of nods for its sophisticated design and styling. Its innovative features are also interesting.
