Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 than in the Audi Q7, 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 Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi Q7, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Audi Q7 or the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi Q7 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q7, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Warranty
