Crowning the King of Luxury Performance - Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

The Audi Q5 SUV is certainly the luxury compact SUV segment's most modern offering, boasting a high degree of the latest technology, premium comfort, and sophisticated style. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover enthusiasts with a lush cabin and a plush ride quality. When it comes to performance, both of the luxury SUVs claim high levels of power and agile handling. So, with the Audi and Mercedes-Benz models coming head to head, which SUV will take the crown of the king of luxury performance?

Performance Standoff

The Mercedes-Benz GLC has plenty to flaunt when it comes to the engine lineup, offering a wide selection of powertrains to satisfy most shoppers, including a standard turbocharged engine, along with V6 and V8 options available on the performance-oriented models. However, its competitor boasts better handling and more athletic performance, featuring the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive as standard equipment.

The athletic performance of the Audi Q5 is unmatched - the model features the versatile turbocharged 248-horsepower 45 TFSI® engine, mated with a seven-speed S tronic® transmission, while the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive yields high-precision and dynamic handling. This feature allows the vehicle to swiftly switch from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive according to the conditions, which provides the driver with appropriate power when needed and saves on fuel and drag when it's not in use. Drivers may also customize the experience to suit the driving style and road conditions with the Audi drive select system.
