2019 Audi Q5 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC


The 2019 Audi Q5 is a five-seat SUV with a powerful turbo engine and a spacious cargo area — but then again, so is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC. In fact, the new GLC offers a much roomier cargo area and many features that are either unavailable on the Q5 or require an upgrade. So, which one is right for Caledon families? Our vote is for the GLC. Compare the Audi Q5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC below to learn more!
