2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Audi Q7

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS marks its fifth year sporting the current design. As a massive luxury SUV, the GLS can haul the whole family in comfort. There is plenty of space for adults as well as kids with their gears. But cargo space is not the only strength of the GLS. It can deliver a lot of power and it also has a four-wheel drive capability.

The 2019 Audi Q7 is the most family-oriented choice for the brand’s SUV lineup. It is a lot less flashy compared to the GLS, but its luxurious features are well-executed too. Here is a comparison of the new GLS and Q7 to check which one is reasonable to have.

Design & Style

Unlike most of the Mercedes-Benz’ lineup that has curvy features, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is big and boxy. Even the grille is wider than most of its siblings and it is stamped with the prominent star logo. Its cabin has finely tailored goods. It has metal details for the air vents and the infotainment screen. Its upholstery and other cabin features can be customized with a variety of materials such as wood veneer and carbon fiber.

The 2019 Audi Q7 has a bland design. It is a great thing that it has a big trapezoidal grille plus good-looking LED head and tail lights. They somehow liven up the exterior and made the wagon-like profile look presentable.

Technology & Safety

Driving a big car tends to be stressful. This is probably why the GLS is equipped with a number of customization options for its infotainment system. The varieties of upgrades that are available keep the audio and navigation systems interesting to the user.

The Q7 has Audi’s MMI technology for infotainment. It is unquestionably one of the best as it has clear graphics, excellent sound quality, and a user-friendly interface.


Under the hood of the GLS base model is a V6 engine that can produce up to 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This engine is definitely fast and strong. There are drive modes to help with different driving conditions. The ride is smooth and controlled thanks to the use of air suspension. There is also an Active Curve system that applies counterforce against the body lean. This is to keep the vehicle steady during quick turns.

The Q7 2.0 T produces 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is a strong performer and has an admirable handling capability. Steering effort is appropriate and the brake system instills confidence.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is undoubtedly the best performer among its class. Its powerful engine is spectacular on the road. Its stylish features hide its bulky size and came out as sophisticated as the smaller Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
