2022 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 63 S Vs. 2022 Audi SQ5 Performance

2022 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 63 S Vs. 2022 Audi SQ5 Performance

Both the GLC 63 S and the SQ5 focus on the performance they’re able to pack into a fully-capable SUV. Both vehicles come standard with AWD drivetrains and selectable drive modes, but both employ vastly different engines. For the SQ5, a turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine puts out 349 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque to achieve a 0-60mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The GLC 63 S is powered by a handcrafted 4.0L biturbo V8 that pushes 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, good for a 0-60mph time of just 3.6 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 174 mph. Either would be an enjoyable vehicle to drive, but there’s no comparing the thrill levels available between them. Inquire about the GLC 63 S at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park to see how you can take one for a test drive.

2022 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 63 S Vs. 2022 Audi SQ5 Safety

2022 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 63 S Vs. 2022 Audi SQ5 Safety

With a vehicle as performative as this, you’ll want to be sure it’s got you covered with safety and driver assistance features to keep you and your passengers safe (not to mention your lustrous paint). Both of these vehicles have standard safety systems that will, in the event a potential collision is detected, tighten front seatbelts and close windows to prepare occupants in the moments before a collision. Unfortunately for the Audi SQ5, there aren’t many more similarities after that. Braking is one of the most important abilities for safety, which is why the GLC 63 S comes standard with features like active brake assist (which can automatically brake if an imminent collision is detected) and adaptive braking technology (which can prime the braking system for an improved braking response when it’s needed most). The SQ5 doesn’t offer comparable features. Learn more about the 2022 Mercedes-AMG® GLC 63 S at Mercedes-Benz of Orland Park today.

As impressive as a vehicle can be mechanically and performatively, it’s nothing without accommodations and amenities that serve you and keep you wanting a drive. Both the GLC 63 S and the SQ5 make use of adaptive damping systems that work in conjunction with the drive mode selection to optimize the suspension for your ride. Be it long-road cruising or agile cornering, these vehicles can actively adapt to maximize the available performance. Both vehicles integrate paddle shifters, allowing you to take control of the gears for a truly connected feel. You’ll find lavish seating materials inside either vehicle, but only the GLC 63 S is available with AMG® performance seats that use robust bolsters to conform to your body and keep you secure through quick corners.
