Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The EQA is the third pure EV in Mercedes' EQ sub-brand, with the S-Class-flavoured EQS soon to become the fourth. The body-in-white is mostly to GLA specification, although the subframes have been modified to reduce road roar. The basic suspension design – MacPherson struts up front with a multi-link rear – is also carried over from the GLA. Positives include the driving position, which is sporting, despite the stratum of battery cells propping it up.

  • Comfortable to drive

  • Nothing in particular

autoexpress[2]

Sentiment Score[*] 61%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Mercedes EQA is based on the combustion-engined GLA model. Priced from around £44,500, the EQA doesn't qualify for any government grant to help reduce the on-the-road cost. The range doesn't include an 'entry-level' trim as such, so you benefit from a decent level of standard equipment.

  • Class-leading infotainment system
  • Decent range
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

The Mercedes-Benz EQA is the first mass-market electric Mercedes. It uses a 140 kW-motor (188bhp) on the front axle, and a battery around 70kWh in capacity is under the floor. The powertrain supplies enough energy for a claimed 261-mile range under the WLTP tests. Top speed is electronically muzzled to 99mph.

  • Not the most engaging electric car
