Overall verdict

"Typical, isn’t it? You wait years for an all-electric prestige SUV, and then several come along at once."

Mercedes EQC frontright exterior

Okay, granted, the Tesla Model X has been around since 2016, but all the other rivals for the EQC - those being the Audi E-Tron and Jaguar I-Pace - came along at a very similar time to Mercedes’ entrant in the class.


So how does the EQC mark itself out from the competition? Well, it’s smaller than most, so it struggles to match the best of them for practicality. Indeed, the Tesla even gives you seven seats as opposed to the five seats in the rest.


The Jaguar has the sporty side of things sewn up thanks to its eye-widening speed and sharp handling, whereas the Audi E-Tron majors on being an electric SUV that feels like a luxury limousine thanks to its cosseting ride, sensational refinement and impressive interior quality. So what trump card does that leave for the EQC to play?


Step forward, MBUX. This is Mercedes’ latest generation of infotainment tech, and it brings all sorts of different functionality together into one visually stunning and easy-to-use package. 


Bear in mind that you’ll want to buy a car of AMG Line Premium level or above to get the most out of it on this score (because entry-level cars miss a few desirable bits of functionality, unfortunately), but if you do, and you love your gadgets, then this alone will be a reason for buying the EQC over its adversaries.


It’s good in other areas as well. It comes loaded with standard equipment, has a high quality interior and it has enough space and practicality for a family, even if it can’t do any of these things quite as well as the very best-in-class. Likewise, it’s impressively quick, hugely quiet and refined on the road and the motorway ride is very smooth. However, it’s not so comfy in a few other situations, it doesn’t handle with the same precision or keenness as most of its rivals, and it can’t quite match the best of them for driving range, either.


The fact remains, though, that the EQC does a very solid job in every area, so it’s a good all-rounder. And, if tech is your thing, then it has the wow-factor to steal your heart, and more importantly for Mercedes, your custom. Not quite one of the best electric cars, but well worth considering.

Is the Mercedes-Benz EQC right for you?

If you’ve made the decision to go for an all-electric premium SUV, it’s fair to say that you’ve already come a very long way in your decision-making journey. Well done you. Now all you need to do is decide which of the small group of cars that fit the bill is the one closest to what you’re looking for.


We’ll keep this short and sweet. If you’re looking for the sportiest car of this type, go for the Jaguar I-Pace. If you want the roomiest and most practical, it’s the Tesla Model X, while if you want the one with the poshest cabin, the Audi E-Tron is the one for you. 


If, however, you want a decent blend of all those abilities, plus a comfortable motorway ride, and supremely quiet and serene driving experience and a seriously impressive infotainment system, the EQC could well be the one for you.

What's the best Mercedes-Benz EQC model/engine to choose?

The engine selection is pretty easy with the EQC. It doesn’t have one, and all versions get the same 408PS output from their twin electric motors. The official WLTP range only differs by four miles between best and worst (accounted for mainly by the size of alloy wheel fitted to the various models), too, so that’s not a decision-making factor, either. 


The amount of kit you get might be, though. The entry-level Sport trim gets plenty, and the AMG Line gets some sporty visual upgrades, but both miss out on the Apple Carplay/Android Auto upon which some buyers will insist. You get it on AMG Line Premium trim, along with Burmester surround sound, a wireless phone charger and augmented reality navigation to make your car feel more special. As such, that’s the one we’d go for.

What other cars are similar to the Mercedes-Benz EQC?

As an all-electric premium SUV, the Mercedes EQC has a very definite selection of rivals, albeit ones that range more in size than with other classes of car. It’s closest competitor in that regard is the Jaguar I-Pace. Yes, the Jag is designed to be fast and sporty, while the Merc is a more sensible, relaxed choice, but they’re bang-on for size. The Audi e-tron, like the Merc, is more of a luxury car than a sports car, and it’s also appreciably bigger. Bigger still is the Tesla Model X. It’s also a sight more expensive and has seven seats.
