The Mercedes EQA’s biggest strength is undoubtedly its long range, but overall a firm ride and lofty pricing let it down. Newer rivals, including the Genesis GV60, Kia EV6 and Smart #1, are much better all-rounders. To make the most of the EQA’s range, we recommend going for the front-wheel-drive 250+ version.

It’s not such a big jump in price to AMG Line Executive trim from the entry-level trim, but the only real benefit is that you get some slightly sportier styling inside and out. AMG Line Premium adds 20in alloy wheels, wireless phone-charging and a 360-degree parking camera, while AMG Line Premium Plus adds a panoramic glass sunroof, electrically adjustable front seats, a Burmester sound system and a head-up display. Despite these two trims offering some fine luxuries, they do push the price up significantly.

This gets two motors, making it four-wheel drive and covers 0-62mph in 7.7sec. The official range is 266 miles, which is a lot less impressive than the 250+.
