Comfort & Convenience
The new Mercedes-Benz GLC and the 2018 Audi both offer certain comfort and convenience features, such as front power lumbar support and optional heated front seats. However, when comparing the Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Audi Q5 interior, Cook County drivers will soon realize that the GLC 300 offers unique interior amenities the Q5 2.0T Premium quattro doesn’t, including:
- Available Cooled Front Seats
- Front Dual Power Headrest
- Standard Front Power Memory Seats (Optional on Audi Q5)
- Rear Armrest Storage
- Available Cargo Net
While both models offer features like variable assisted steering and available navigation aid, the technology on the GLC cannot be beat. The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers a larger variety of features the Audi Q5 doesn’t include as standard or optional equipment, such as:
- Standard Vehicle Location System (Optional on Audi Q5)
- Standard Telematics (Optional on Audi Q5)
- Available Rear Electronic Parking Aid With Camera
- Available DISTRONIC PLUS® Intelligent Cruise Control
Safety & Security
The GLC puts driving safety first, with a wide selection of safety features not included on the Q5, including rear pretensioners and Front Airbag Deactivation via Child Seat Detection System. The GLC not only has driver and passenger protection in mind, but it also thinks about the security of your belongings. The GLC provides a standard retractable soft cargo cover and standard vehicle theft tracking/notification system, both of which are only optional on the Q5.
