The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA and the 2018 Audi Q3 are both attractive options for compact luxury SUVs. When you compare the features and specs head-to-head, though, a few important truths become apparent:

  • The GLA is significantly more powerful
  • The GLA has nicer standard and optional features
  • The GLA has superior overall utility

Form your own opinion of the GLA by exploring the inventory at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston in Charleston, WV.


These models have similar standard performance, but for Huntington drivers who prize power, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA beats out the Audi Q3.

  • The AMG® GLA 45 runs on a highly refined version of the standard 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that boosts power ratings to an astounding 375 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. The standard model also comes with three distinctly different selectable driving modes.
  • The only engine available for the Audi Q3 is also a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder, but it can only muster 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque and is not able to re-tune performance on-demand.

Despite the similar starting price between models, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA comes with a nicer list of standard features:

  • The Mercedes-Benz model comes with 18-inch alloy wheels that give the exterior an upscale look, HD radio to expand your audio options, and thembrace® telematics system that offers a suite of features including in-car Wi-Fi.
  • The Q3 comes standard with steels wheels, a traditional radio, and no telematics system or option for on-the-go connectivity around Beckley.
