Comparing the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 to the BMW X3 & Audi Q5

Drivers in Atlanta know that luxury SUVs are all the craze this summer. Cited for their world-class interior design, striking exterior flair, and enhanced performance capability, luxury SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 are hard to miss on the highways in Decatur. To get a better look at what the GLC 300 has to offer, let's compare it to two of its closest competitors, the BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

Interior Features

Sporting a spacious and sophisticated interior cabin, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 sets the bar high when it comes to its available standard features and its captivating aesthetic. Highlighted by an array of standard features, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote engine start, and a power liftgate, the GLC 300 revels in its luxurious and functional design.

Unlike the Audi Q5, both the GLC 300 and the BMW X3 come available with a head-up display and adaptive cruise control system that reacts to the cars around you when you get a little too close for comfort. Integrated with an available hard disk drive and premium sound system, the GLC 300 and X3 both put the power in your hands, while the GLC 300 offers a few additional features that you won't find in either model, like a CD player and an optional entertainment system.

Exterior Design

Boasting the longest wheelbase out of the three luxury models, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 embodies an alluring sport utility design that's easily recognizable on the roadways in Conyers. Available with running boards and a dual pane moonroof, the GLC 300 can be upgraded to accommodate for just about any upcoming adventure that you have planned for this summer.

Standard equipped with a rear spoiler, the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 luxury SUVs both make their presence known in Stone Mountain with a suite of sporty design elements that help set them apart from other capable SUVs on the roads. However, what they both lack in comparison to the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is the executive-level craftsmanship and elegant arrangement of body lines that help give the GLC 300 its iconic and noteworthy appearance.


Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, Audi Q5, and the BMW X3 all come equipped with the same engine producing similar horsepower on the open roads in Tucker.  Standard equipped with rear-wheel drive, except the Q5 which comes with all-wheel drive, the GLC 300 and the X3 both feature an innovative performance management system that helps shift power between wheels when the going gets tough and the terrain changes suddenly.

Standard with an active suspension system, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is poised to handle the off-road avenues around Atlanta with confidence and control, which is something the X3 and the Q5 might have a little more trouble doing. Featuring an automatic transmission system with manual mode across the board, all three luxury SUVs invigorate drivers with their modern performance capability and are poised to inspire your next adventure no matter which model you choose to drive.
