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

Comparison Review


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

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Audi Q5. 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Audi Q5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is about the same width as the Audi Q5. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is slightly shorter than the Audi Q5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Audi Q5.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Audi Q5 is clearly the choice over the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has a lot less horsepower than the Audi Q5.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Audi Q5. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has less cargo space than the Audi Q5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi Q5.
