How it copes with people and clutter

You wouldn’t expect to have any issues with front space in a car as large as the Mercedes EQC, and the good news is you won’t – not unless you're very tall, anyway. Good-sized door pockets, a lidded cubby (with integrated cupholders) beneath the air-con controls and further stowage space under the central armrest make it great for family life too.

There’s no doubt the Audi E-tron is altogether more accommodating for people sitting in the back. Indeed, leg and head room in the EQC are more restrictive than in the rival Jaguar I-Pace, but the Mercedes has more room for three across its rear bench seat than the Jaguar. We've only tried cars fitted with a sunroof, which reduces head room a little. If you want seven seats, you'll need to splash out more on a Tesla Model X as the EQC is a five-seater only.
