Audi Q7 vs. GLE 350 4MATIC®: Luxury Features

The Mercedes-Benz GLE and Audi Q7 offer many of the same features, including technologies like a pre-collision system, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and smartphone integration. However, the GLE has a few aces up its sleeve, specifically the following features that aren’t standard on the Q7:

  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX): New for the GLE, MBUX is an intelligent infotainment system that responds to voice commands and natural language and puts you in control of everything from cabin functions to music to navigation.
  • Blind Spot Assist: Standard Blind Spot Assist operates at speeds of 20 mph or higher, and can sense when a vehicle enters your blind zones. If a vehicle is detected, you’ll see an illuminated red icon on the corresponding mirror and receive other visual and audible notifications.
  • PRESAFE® Sound: This system is an extension of PRESAFE® and emits a “pink noise” via the audio system if a collision seems likely. The pink noise stimulates a natural reflex in the human ear and helps protect your hearing from damage should an accident occur.
