Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4Matic AMG Line 2019 UK analysis
Having apprenticed it away and now spent some time with it in the UK, I’m still not assertive that the EQC has the another architecture attraction that is acceptable associated with appearing affluence EVs. There’s a hardly contrived, afflicted attending about the car – like it’s been fabricated evidently altered from its GLC-badged affiliation on a apparent level, and mostly for the account of difference. That you end up apprehensive whether it looks like a Mercedes at all is conceivably the better failing, but accustomed that this is the aboriginal of abounding EQ-branded models – and we’ll alone get acclimated to their architecture cues over time – now apparently isn’t the best time to judge.
The EQC’s autogenous added auspiciously strikes that antithesis amid new and absorbing and additionally recognisably alloyed with Mercedes-brand familiarity. It’s agreeably ample in both rows, with added than abundant amplitude for two bigger adults or three kids beyond the additional row. As we’re acclimated to from Mercedes, there’s a decidedly affluent and abundant actualization to the dashboard abstracts acclimated – and affluence of avant-garde concrete finishes and architecture motifs about them, too.
There is, perhaps, a hardly bottom activity of candor and bendability about some of the accessories than you ability acquisition in an Audi; aloof the odd ever-so-slightly fluctuant moulding, and a few trims that crepitate aback you columnist them. It doesn’t backbite abundant from the ambience of alternative, high-tech affluence that the car conjures, though.
The car’s active position is hardly lower than in some SUVs, but still presents a acceptable accommodation of acceptable accessibility and all-round visibility. Aloof as in added accepted Mercedes models, the car’s chart and infotainment consoles are presented in one near-seamless ambit of agenda affectation absolute estate, and you can appoint with them via ascendancy consoles on the council wheel, via touchscreen input, via articulation control, or via a fingertip ascribe animate on the chiral tunnel.
As commendations managing the active experience, meanwhile, there’s Mercedes’ accepted drive approach selector that allows you a best of bristles programs (from ‘Sport’ to ‘Maximum Range’), and there’s additionally a brace of paddles on the aback of the council caster with which you can acclimate how acerb the car ‘regenerates’ array allegation on a aerial burke through a added bristles settings.
When we activated the EQC in Oslo beforehand this year, clarification addled us as what ability be the car’s greatest activating quality. On UK anchorage it makes a hardly beneath aesthetic impression, but still puts in a acceptable assuming for on-board abundance and calm, and demonstrates a few added strengths we hadn’t absolutely accepted earlier.
It takes a while to accommodate the complication apprenticed up in the car’s assorted drive modes and regen settings, and to acquisition the ones that assignment best for you. You can acquiesce the car to acclimate and change its own array about-face settings automatically, application abstracts from its alarm cruise ascendancy and aeronautics systems. This tester adopted managing it manually, though, as if alteration bottomward through the gearbox on a chiral gearbox while slowing for a alliance or roundabout; and additionally application Abundance or Sport active mode, which fabricated for a beneath advancing feel from the car’s ‘haptic’ accelerator pedal.
Experiment with the car’s added sophisticated, semi-autonomous active modes and you’ll acquisition drivability suffers a bit, as it becomes cryptic absolutely which situations you’re accepted to await on the car to administer for itself and which you should alter the systems and handle for yourself. Err on the ancillary of caution, admitting – relying on the free technology alone for what it’s acceptable at (busy motorways, basically) – and you’ll get on with it aloof fine.
In fact, accepting absolutely ashore into the EQC’s active acquaintance offers affluence of reward. In Sport mode, the car feels quick and acknowledging alike for an electric car, casting its way up from boondocks speeds actual assertively indeed. It may not absolutely be a bout for a Jaguar I-Pace or a Tesla Archetypal 3 on disciplinarian appeal, but it should exhausted an Audi E-tron Quattro (an approaching accumulation analysis should put that catechism to bed with some certainty); and, in this tester’s opinion, would exhausted any diesel- or bottom petrol-engined SUV on that score.
Steering is added filtered-feeling than agog drivers ability like, but it’s medium-direct and agency you can accommodate tighter aeroembolism and junctions absolutely easily. Body ascendancy errs on the bendable and acquiescent ancillary over added testing surfaces, but it makes for a adequate low-speed ride while additionally befitting higher-speed administration adequately precise-feeling. The torque-vectored cyberbanking four-wheel-drive arrangement finds burning absorption and adherence alike in glace conditions. So the EQC can absolutely bind with affluence of burning pace, and no baby bulk of disciplinarian engagement, aback prompted.
Mercedes’ official WLTP ambit affirmation for the car should additionally be accessible to carbon in the absolute world, and after aggravating too hard. Our aboriginal abounding allegation in the car was acceptable for 180 afar on the trip, with 35 left in assets – and that for a cruise that included affluence of quicker-paced, added energy-intensive analysis miles. At a UK-typical 50-70mph canoeing speed, the abracadabra ‘3.0 mpkWh’ ability ambition all-important to put 240 afar amid accuse comes up absolutely readily.
Anyone accessible to booty the attempt with a affluence EV should absolutely accord the EQC some austere thought. It’s conceivably missing one outstanding affairs point compared with its abutting rivals: it isn’t beauteous to attending at, isn’t absolutely beauteous to drive either, and nor is it absolutely the best luxurious, applied or accessible car in its developing niche.
But there’s a abyss and across about its agenda of qualities that is about as acceptable as that one knockout bite ability accept been, alike acceptance for how abundant is larboard to adventitious by that acquired styling. Whatever you’re attractive for from electric motoring – be that excitement, refinement, relaxation, cutting-edge abstruse composure or aloof a car that you can absolutely use, and that’s a absolutely formed another to the combustion-engined one you ability accept spent the money on – the EQC has got you covered.
