What Car? says...
The Mercedes EQA is like that colleague who wears a full suit-and-tie for a video conference call, even though everyone else is in a dressing gown and pyjamas.
You see, there are now a whole host of impressive small electric cars to choose from, but very few of them have a posh badge. So, while electric vehicles (EVs) like the Kia e-Niro and Volkswagen ID.3 are certainly praise-worthy, they might not appeal to the same crowd as those lured in by the glitzy gravitational pull of the three-pointed star.
The Mercedes EQA is similar in size to the Volvo XC40 Recharge, with both models occupying the middle ground between other small electric cars like the e-Niro and ID.3, and large electric cars such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model 3.
Price-wise, it’s closer to those bigger rivals, and if it delivers a cut-price, downsized alternative to the more expensive Audi E-tron and Jaguar I-Pace, this could be a real watershed moment for Mercedes’ venture into the EV world.
To find out if it's good enough to compete in the electric car category, read on. We’ll tell you exactly how good the Mercedes EQA is in terms of performance, interior quality, boot size and more, and which version you should go for if you decide to buy one.
