2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2020 Audi Q5

The Mercedes-Benz GLA offers powerful engine performance and athletic handling which are both essential to ensure smooth rides and steady navigation of corners and bends. The GLA also fetches good economy ratings that will pay off in the long run. Does the 2020 Audi Q5 offer just as many perks as the GLA? Let us find out more below.

Design & Style

The Mercedes-Benz GLA has a seating capacity of 5 on its cushy front seats that are very spacious to cater to passengers and drivers of all sizes. They also come with power adjustment options to support the driver in securing that perfect position which is important for longer drives. Its interior cabin style adapts a sophisticated theme which makes use of deluxe materials that are soft to the touch to cover most of its surfaces.

The 2020 Audi Q5 can accommodate up to 5 people on its seats at both rows which are supportive and spacious. Leg- and headroom are also not an issue but the back row’s middle seat’s position may cut back on the space slightly. Its interior feels luxurious with plenty of top grade materials like leather and wooden trims covering most of its surfaces. Overall, the cabin has a sleek outlook that feels neat and seamless.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz GLA comes equipped with several tech features such as its COMAND® system for infotainment, 8-inch display, HD radio, Bluetooth®, and USB ports. For safety, the GLA offers a rearview camera, collision warning, auto emergency brakes, attentiveness monitor, and rain-sensing wipers.

The 2020 Audi Q5 has various tech devices like climate control, 7-inch screen for infotainment, Bluetooth®, USB ports, HD radio, and Apple/Android compatibility. It also offers several safety features such as rearview camera, collision protection, and pedestrian detection.


The Mercedes-Benz GLA can put out 208 horsepower on a turbocharged 4-cylinder under a 7-speed auto transmission. Its fuel economy ratings can fetch 24 mpg in cities and 34 mpg on highways.

The 2020 Audi Q5 generates 248 horsepower on a 4-cylinder as its base whereas its fuel economy is rated at 22 mpg and 28 mpg while in cities and on highways respectively.

The Bottom Line

The Mercedes-Benz GLA is the vehicle to pick to experience a highly-responsive handling to better maneuver around bends and corners. Its fuel efficiency is decent for the powerful engine that it offers whereas its infotainment system is user-friendly. The 2020 Audi Q5 offers almost similar sets of features and powertrain lineup but its price is way too steep for the same vehicle class.
