2015 Audi Q5 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi Q5 than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Audi Q5, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Audi Q5 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Audi Q5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q5 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q5, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Audi Q5 has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi Q5 has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.
