Technology Features

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.
