Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes EQC 4x4?

Another large electric SUV to pay serious attention to is the Jaguar I-Pace because not only is it a cracking thing to drive, it also goes a lot farther than the EQC on a single charge. It, too, comes very well equipped.

If refinement is your bag, check out the Audi E-tron. The range isn't brilliant as large electric cars go, but it isn't far off that of the EQC. Not as quick as an EQC, though.

Overview

Refinement and long-distance comfort are where the Mercedes EQC excels, plus performance is more than enough to keep speed-freaks happy. However, it doesn't have the range of a similarly priced and more widely available Jaguar I-Pace, nor does it handle as well as that rival either.

  • Supremely quiet
  • Comfortable motorway ride
  • Decent infotainment system
  • Range between charges could be better
  • The Audi E-tron is more practical
  • The Jaguar I-Pace are more fun
