2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2018 Audi Q3

November 8th, 2017 by

It’s no secret that small crossovers and SUVs are some of the most popular cars on the market and for good reason. If you’re debating between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA and the 2018 Audi Q3, Fletcher Jones Imports is here to help you make the best decision.

Mercedes-Benz GLA vs Audi Q3

Fuel Economy

While both of these compact crossovers are perfect for navigating through Las Vegas, the GLA 250 has a few advantages over the Audi Q3.

The GLA’s 4-cylinder turbocharged engine is capable of producing 208-hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque while the Q3’s 4-cylinder engine can only produce 200-hp.

If you’re a commuter from Summerlin or Enterprise, the GLA 250 reaches 24 mpg city/33 mpg hwy. Add 4MATIC® and the GLA’s fuel economy will still beat the Q3’s 20 mpg city/28 hwy.

Cargo Space

The Q3 may have the GLA beat when it comes to its 48.2 cubic feet of cargo room compared to the GLA’s 43.6 cubic feet. However, when the rear seats are up the GLA provides 17.2 cubic feet versus the 16.7 cubic found in the Q3.

Interior Features

Perhaps the biggest difference between the GLA and the Q3 is the GLA’s standard features you won’t find in an Audi.
For instance, what you may see as option in the Audi Q3 you’ll find as a standard feature on the GLA like its 8-inch color display, backup camera, and HD Radio Receiver.


In the case of an accident, you’d want the safest vehicle having your back. The Mercedes-Benz GLA is equipped with frontal crash prevention technology as well as features like KEYLESS START and Active Brake Assist that’s not even offered as an available option in the Q3.

Find Your Dream Vehicle

You may have an idea of which vehicle might be the better option, but the best way to decide for sure is to get behind the wheel and take it for a test drive.
