Reviewers from autocar have found:
With 500 litres of storage space, the boot is biggish but not exceptionally so. The car’s driving experience has no shortage of features to distinguish it from a combustion-engined SUV. It has five driving modes (Comfort, Sport, Eco, Individual and Maximum Range) and five different battery regeneration programs.
Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Well-appointed interior
  • Comfortable ride
Cons
  • Expensive for what it offers
  • No driver support system

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The Mercedes EQC is the manufacturer's first all-electric production vehicle. Power comes from an 80kwh battery, with an electric motor at each axle. Despite weighing in at almost two-and-a-half-tonnes, it is capable of 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds. Prices start from over £65,000 for the entry-level Sport version.
Pros
  • Superb electric range
  • Lots of safety kit
Cons
  • Expensive compared to rivals

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
£66k for this 400 model in base trim (up to £80k, though less expensive, less powerful versions will arrive next year) It's heavy, you sit high, the steering's numb and there's no clever anti-roll control, all of which mean this isn't a car in which to get too carried away. But visibility is good, epic torque ever-present and there're sack-loads of grip.
Pros
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Impressive range
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Quite heavy
  • No anti-roll control

Reviewers from carwow have found:
The Mercedes EQC looks like a slinkier, more elegant version of traditional Mercedes SUVs. The infotainment system itself is very easy to use, and actually edges out the systems in the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace for general intuitiveness. There's more than enough space for four adults to stretch out and each seat has ample support.
Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Expensive compared to alternatives

Reviewers from cnet have found:
Under Europe's NEDC test cycle, the Mercedes-Benz EQC can go anywhere between 277 and 293 miles on a full charge. The EQC won't arrive in the US until early 2020, so its official EPA range estimate is still many moons away. You'll likely pay a bit more for the privilege than an Audi E-Tron or Jaguar I-Pace.
Pros
  • Excellent on-road manners
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Expensive compared to other Mercedes-Benz models

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
Mercedes-Benz says the EQC will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. There's no noise or drama, just a healthy shove in the back the instant you floor the pedal. At its lowest setting, it feels a lot like releasing the accelerator in a conventional, gasoline-powered car.
Pros
  • Powerful electric powertrain
  • Impressive range
  • Superb safety equipment
Cons
  • No multi-spoke charging
  • No DCI-PAN
