Seating Capacity


Comparing the Audi Q7 vs. the Mercedes-Benz GLS, you find two absolutely plush luxury vehicles. You’ve got plenty of room for three rows of passengers, bespoke interiors built out with the finest of materials, and powerful engines ready to win the day in Larchmont. However, only one of these vehicles has a more powerful engine, more seating in the third row, and the seal of approval that is the Mercedes-Benz name. Read on and let Mercedes-Benz of New Rochelle enlighten Mamaroneck drivers on the merits of this legendary luxury SUV.



GLS vs. Q7: Value & Features

While the Audi Q7 does come in at a lower price than the Mercedes-Benz GLS, the features and power offered from this vehicle just can’t compare to what the Mercedes-Benz GLS gives you. You’ve got a much less powerful engine, a rather cramped third row, and when you consider what the most expensive Q7 offers compared to the base GLS 450, you’ll know. Even on the top-tier Q7 SUV, you’ll have to pay extra for these features:

  • Ventilated front seats
  • Front passenger’s lumbar support
  • Remote starting system
  • Air suspension

How about the GLS 450? On this model, they’re all standard! Also, only the GLS has heated third-row seats and second-row captain’s chairs as optional upgrades.

GLS vs. Q7: Interior Dimensions & Cargo Room

You can seat with six or seven inside the GLS, depending on if you pick the second-row captain’s chairs. However, all Q7 models seat seven. And when you look at the dimensions for the GLS vs. Q7, you’ll have a clear view of which is better for Bronxville adventures:

2022 Audi Q7 Dimensions Inside

  • Front Headroom: 39.9 inches
  • Middle Headroom: 38.8 inches
  • Rear Headroom: 35.9 inches
  • Front Legroom: 41.7 inches
  • Middle Legroom: 38.8 inches
  • Rear Legroom: 29.2 inches
  • Cargo Space Behind Third Row: 14.2 cubic feet
  • Cargo Space with All Seats Flat: 69.6 cubic feet

2022 Mercedes-Benz GLS Dimensions Inside

  • Front Headroom: 39.4 inches
  • Middle Headroom: 40.2 inches
  • Rear Headroom: N/A
  • Front Legroom: 40.3 inches
  • Middle Legroom: 41.9 inches
  • Rear Legroom: 34.6 inches
  • Cargo Space Behind Third Row: 17.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Space with All Seats Flat: 84.7 cubic feet

While you sacrifice a little bit in the first row on the GLS, you likely aren’t buying a full-size SUV for only two passengers. The second and third rows provide more room in the Mercedes-Benz GLS, with an exceptional bias toward the GLS when it comes to the third row. This way, all your passengers will be able to sit back and relax.
