Although the 2018 Audi Q7 is bigger in size than the Mercedes-Benz GLE, it’s the Mercedes-Benz model that allows you to do more while on the job or seeking adventure. This model offers an impressive 6,600-pound towing capacity so you can bring all the  bigger items along for the ride. If you want the Audi, you’ll only get a 4,400-pound towing capacity, which means you’ll have a lot less power to haul the items that you’ll need to haul. Having an additional 2,000 pounds is an attractive feature the Mercedes-Benz model has over the Audi. Plus, when you factor in the standard 3.5L engine on the GLE vs the 3.0L engine on the Q7, you’ll quickly see why you can  haul so much more with this model.

Technology and More

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE offers impressive technology features that make this ride more entertaining for those in the cabin.


  • Audio:
    • GLE: The GLE comes with Bang & Olufsen® BeoSound™ audio system that provides a crisp and clear audio of your favorite music, podcast, or general entertainment, and it perfectly wraps through the cabin
    • Q7: The Q7 comes with a BOSE® audio system that is impressive, but doesn’t compare to the clarity and beauty you’ll find on the Mercedes-Benz model
  • Entertainment:
    • GLE: If you bring the GLE home to Staten Island, you’ll love the rear-seat entertainment system that comes with wireless headphones. This way, those in the backseat can stay entertained, and those in the front seat don’t have to be inundated with the audio from the back.
    • Q7: For those with the Q7, opting for the rear seat entertainment system will cost you extra, proving the Mercedes-Benz gives you everything you need right up front
