2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2020 Audi Q8

Designed with an excellent cabin, with comfortable space to accommodate a maximum of seven people, depending on your choice of trim level, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE just knows how to impress. This car oozes with potent handling too, ready to take you to tougher roads.

Oozing with a handsome interior, the 2020 Audi Q8 will soon launch the RS Q9 model. Expect spacious seats inside the ride as well.

Design & Style

The Mercedes-Benz GLE basically seats up to five people in its four-door setup. This luxury midsize SUV can be expanded to include a third row seat that can accommodate two more passengers. Even with the third row inclusion, the ride still promises comfort all throughout your travel. Aside from high quality materials in the interior construction, there is plenty of solid hardware inside the ride as well.

With a lovely and spacious interior, the 2020 Audi Q8 manages to occupy a spot in the upper half of the luxury midsize SUV rankings. There is ample room to accommodate the needs of taller passengers in its five-seating capacity setup. While you will find the interior dazzling at some point, there are certain components that make it understated, thus leaving a disappointment feeling to those who get a glance of it.

Technology & Safety

The GLE is now carrying Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system, whose functions are supported by its 12.3-inch touch screen. It comes with easy-to-use voice controls, and gesture controls. Standard safety features for this ride include a rearview camera, active brake assist blind spot monitoring, active brake assist, and driver attention monitoring. It also has a standard active parking assist which has parking sensors used to automatically steer the SUV when moving through parallel parking spaces.

The Audi Q8 carries a newer version of its MMI infotainment system. This combines two screens, one is the 10.1-inch touch screen and the lower display that is 8.6 inches in size. It supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, ad Amazon Alexa.  It also has a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, *Bluetooth®, four USB ports, a 10-speaker stereo, satellite radio, HD Radio, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Safety wise, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking , lane departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlights are standard for this ride.


The GLE carries a base trim model that is turbocharged by a four-cylinder engine to generate up to 255 horsepower. It has a six-cylinder engine variation that can reach up to 362 horsepower. The twin-turbo V8, on the other hand, packs up to 483 horsepower. Generating 335 horsepower, the V6 engine in the Audi A8 is quite a disappointment when compared to the GLE’s six-cylinder version.

The Bottom Line

Surpassing expectations of car lovers out there, you will surely love the GLE over the Q8. After all, it combines class and sportiness with its overall setup. Not to forget that it oozes with great technology and safety features as well. Its potent engine lineup is another thing to praise in this ride.
