What is The Best Luxury SUV near Atlanta for Me?

If you're thinking of buying a luxury crossover SUV in Atlanta, you expect it to have a posh interior. But shouldn't it also be fun to drive? The new Audi Q5 has one of the finer cabins in its class, with premium materials inside like standard leather upholstery and wood trim. Its also a joy to drive, with engaging handling and swift acceleration. The new Mercedes-Benz GLC Class is also a compact luxury SUV with a sophisticated interior and plenty of nice features. However, here at Audi South Atlanta, we believe the Audi Q5 handles better and offers a few more standard features than the GLC Class. Continue reading to find out why the Audi Q5 has more to offer people near Atlanta, GA than does the GLC Class.

Audi Q5 vs Mercedes-Benz GLC Class


  • The Audi Q5 Is More Athletic: Both the Mercedes-Benz GLC Class and the Audi Q5 have quick acceleration and nimble handling. However, the Q5 is more agile than the GLC Class. It stays planted around turns, with very little body roll. It tackles twists and turns with aplomb, and rides smoothly even when the pavement is rough. The GLC Class stays composed on most roads, but it doesn't quite have the sporty ride you get with the Audi Q5.
  • The Audi Q5 Has a More User-Friendly Infotainment System: Both the Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Class have high-tech infotainment systems, but drivers in the Atlanta area will find that the Q5's system is easier to use. Its physical controls make it easy to operate, and features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it a breeze to sync your smartphone to the Q5. Some people find the GLC's standard and available infotainment systems tricky to use. Unlike the Q5, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto don't come standard in the GLC Class. You'd have to pay more to get the same smartphone compatibility in the GLC.
  • The Audi Q5 Has More Passenger Space: Both the Mercedes-Benz GLC Class and the Audi Q5 will seat five people, but the Q5 gives you more room to stretch out in. The Q5 has more front shoulder room (57.7 inches vs. 57.3 inches in the GLC), second-row legroom (37.8 inches vs. 37.2 inches in the GLC), front legroom (41 inches vs. 40.8 inches in the GLC), second-row shoulder room (56.5 inches vs. 55.8 inches in the GLC), and front headroom (40.2 inches vs. 38.9 inches in the GLC).
  • The Audi Q5 Comes with Real Leather Upholstery: The Audi Q5 comes standard with leather upholstery, while the GLC Class comes with leatherette upholstery. People near Atlanta who enjoy the look and feel of real leather will appreciate that it's standard in the Q5. You'll have to pay more for a higher trim to get genuine leather in the GLC.

  • The Audi Q5 Comes Standard with All-Wheel Drive: All-wheel drive gives you better road grip and improved traction on wet or icy roads. Drivers in the Atlanta area will like the Q5's standard quattro® all-wheel drive system, which proactively distributes power where it's most needed, giving it enhanced stability and handling. The GLC Class offers all-wheel drive, but its optional, so you have to pay more to get it.
