  • 208-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder
  • 258 lb-ft of torque

Performance & Fuel-Efficiency

Turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engines appear under the hoods of both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and 2018 Audi Q3. Let’s take a closer look at their specs:

  • Engine Power: The GLA 250 outmatches the Q3 SUV’s 200 hp and 207 lb-ft torque with a much bolder 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • Fuel-Efficiency: Thanks in large part to ECO-START®/Stop, the 2018 GLA 250 earns an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway rating vs. the 2018 Q3 SUV’s lackluster 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating.

Practical Amenities & Technology

A power-adjustable front-passenger seat and a parking assist system are included as standard on the Q3; however, Eastvale and Chino drivers can outfit the GLA 250 with one or more of these features as options. What’s more, the GLA line comes standard with many everyday conveniences not included on the base Q3, such as:

  • Power Liftgate: Using a built-in sensor, the power liftgate automatically stops if obstructions are detected, and can even be programmed to stop at a specific height.
  • Driver Memory Settings: The standard 14-way power driver seat includes driver memory settings, allowing you to store up to three positions for the seat and side mirrors.

Crash-Mitigating Safety Features

The GLA 250 and Q3 offer dependable SUV-caliber safety. Both include all the basic systems, such as multiple airbags, anti-lock brakes, and traction and stability control. However, when you compare the crash mitigation systems on the GLA 250 vs. Audi Q3, you’ll notice that a majority of the Q3 SUV’s driver assists are optional. Only the GLA 250 comes standard with:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®®: This driver attention monitor alerts you when you begin to lose focus on road-trips or long drives.
  • Active Brake Assist: Radar-based technology can predict frontal collisions and, if necessary, trigger automatic emergency braking.
