Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review: Mercedes-Benz EQC



Final thoughts and pick of the range

Comfy, refined and reassuringly normal car-ish. But it's also hamstrung by not being a bespoke EV

Mercedes has been cautious in its first electric car. (Well, first except for the electric Smarts, electric B-Class and electric SLS.) By using an adapted GLC platform there aren’t the gains in revolutionary style or cabin space you’d hope for. It’s not at all sporty to drive either.

But the detail of its refined drivetrain and chassis makes it a relaxing car to drive or ride in. And Mercedes has done all it can to ease the transition to finding energy from power points not petrol stations.
