Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 than in the Audi Q7, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Dimensions
