GLA vs. Q3: Interior

When selecting a luxury vehicle, comfort should be a top priority. Although the GLA 250 and Audi Q3 are both spacious enough for five passengers and offer conveniences like dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, and 60/40-split folding rear seats, the GLA family is equipped with features that aren’t standard on the Q3. The GLA 250, for example, brags a power liftgate for easy loading/unloading, as well as a power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory for greater on-the-road comfort.

GLA vs. Q3: Safety

To give you the peace of mind you deserve while driving, the new GLA and Q3 are outfitted with many active and passive safety systems. Both SUVs offer a theft-deterrent alarm system, tire pressure monitoring, and daytime running lights. That said, the GLA 250 still stands apart from the Q3, thanks to exclusive safety features, such as:

  • Active Brake Assist: Through the support of radar-based technology, this system will inform you if you’re approaching a stationary object or vehicle ahead at a potentially dangerous speed or distance.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: This system monitors up to 70 unique parameters of driving behaviors and can alert you via audible and visual warnings if it detects drowsiness during long road trips.
  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®: Optional on the GLA 250, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® is an adaptive cruise control system that can respond to the traffic flow ahead of you and completely stop your vehicle when needed.
