If you’re on the hunt for a spacious, high-performing model, with enough towing power for your wildest adventures, the GLS SUV is the model to beat.

Interior Dimensions & Cargo Room: Q7 or GLS?

Trying to decide whether the Mercedes-Benz GLS or Audi Q7 has more to offer your family? Although both large SUVs come standard with seven-passenger seating, there’s no way around the fact that the GLS is more comfortable–especially in its second and third rows.  Here’s how the two SUVs compare on key dimensions:

2019 Audi Q7 Dimensions Inside 

  • 1st-Row Legroom – 41.7 inches
  • 2nd-Row Legroom – 38.8 inches
  • 3rd-Row Legroom – 29.2 inches
  • Cargo Volume (Minimum) – 14.2 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 2nd Row) – 35.7 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st Row) – 69.6 cubic feet

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS Dimensions Inside 

  • 1st-Row Legroom – 40.3 inches
  • 2nd-Row Legroom – 41.9 inches

  • Cargo Volume (Minimum) – 17.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 2nd Row) – 17.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume (Behind 1st Row): 84.7 cubic feet

With five more inches of 3rd-row legroom, 3 more inches of 2nd-row legroom, and 15 more cubic feet of available cargo space, the GLS has no trouble notching a win.

Performance and Utility: Q7 or GLS?

The 2019 Audi Q7 is certainly no slouch, but it can’t hold a candle to the Mercedes-Benz GLS. Here’s how their engines, transmissions, and towing capacities compare:

  • Q7 vs. GLS Towing Capacity: If you’ve ever had to pull heavy cargo, you know that the GLS towing capacity is sufficient for almost any non-commercial task. You’ll be able to pull a maximum of 7,700 pounds, compared to 4,400 pounds in the Q7.
