Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Mercedes says more EQA variants with greater driving range are on stream but gives no figures. Positives include the driving position, which is sporting, despite the stratum of battery cells propping it up. Still, it’s a little plasticky in parts, given the £40,500 asking price, and doesn’t feel especially spacious.

Pros
  • Powerful electric motor
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment
Cons
  • Lacklustre ride quality
  • Pricier than the GLA

autoexpress[2]

Sentiment Score 58%
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.

Pros
  • Competitively priced
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lack of standard equipment

Inside you get the augmented-reality nav system from the A-Class, as well as wireless phone charging and an upgraded sound system. Premium Plus pack is another £6,000, but this adds 20-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, an adaptive damper and a 360-degree parking camera. From April, business users running an EQA will pay Benefit in Kind tax of just one per cent.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
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.

Pros
  • Compact size
  • Good visibility
Cons
  • No dedicated EV platform
  • Lack of space for people and luggage

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Mercedes-Benz EQA is the latest addition to the growing UK EV market. Costing from £40,495 in its most basic form, it offers a lot of premium SUV-shaped EV for the money. According to Mercedes, the EQA averages 15.7kWh per 62 miles. It can cover 266 miles between jabs, and there is a long-range version good for over 310 miles already waiting in the wings.

Pros
  • Comfortable and cosseting ride
