Review

The Mercedes EQC is a solid effort and brilliant if you want to maximise the peace and quiet offered by going electric: it really is hushed on the move. But while it's generally comfortable on motorways, it doesn't ride as well as its rivals in other respects and the range is someway off an I-Pace's.

get the best price

This adds 20in alloy wheels and sports seats finished in natural black leather. It's worth adding the Premium package, though, for infotainment upgrades such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

You certainly won’t have any complaints about its acceleration, because the EQC can hit 62mph from a standstill in just 5.1 seconds. That makes it faster than most hot hatchbacks or, more to the point, an Audi e-tron. The I-Pace and Tesla Model X are faster still, but you’d have to be a real speed freak to care.The EQC achieved 208 miles on a full charge in our Real Range tests — the Tesla Model X managed 233 miles, the Audi E-tron 196 miles, an the Jaguar I-Pace 253 miles.
