    About the EQA

    Mercedes-Benz’s entry-level electric vehicle range has expanded, with a new EQA 350 flagship now in Australian showrooms.

    The EQA now has a two-model range, with a choice of single-motor front-wheel drive or dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrains.

    Across the showroom floor is the more spacious EQB, which shares the EQA’s platform but offers up to three rows of seating. Both are based on combustion-powered Mercedes-Benz models – the GLA and GLB, respectively – and rival the likes of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Mercedes-Benz EQA Interior

    A very similar interior to the GLA.

    If you’re the kind of person that prefers an electrified car to look and feel like its combustion-powered equivalents, the EQA’s cabin will more or less work for you.

    The GLA – and the wider A-Class and B-Class family – has struck a chord with buyers thanks to its glossy MBUX dual displays, general high-quality finishes, and of course the big thee-pointed star on the steering wheel hub. Here in the EQA, it’s much of the same.

    A-B-C-D-E-F-G – which EQ is best for me?

    The Mercedes-EQ electric sub-brand has been busy churning out a range of all-electric luxury cars based on popular Mercedes-Benz passenger and SUV lines.

    Second to hit Australian showrooms after the GLC-based EQC is the new EQA, a compact EV crossover sharing its bones with the new GLA – not an electric A-Class as previewed by the Concept EQA design study.

    EQA Colours

    What colours are available for the Mercedes-Benz EQA?

    Polar White and Night Black are the two standard colours, with the following metallic finishes a $1146 option:

    • Denim Blue
    • Rosé Gold (not available with Edition 1 package)
    • Digital White
    • Iridium Silver
    • Mountain Grey
    • Cosmos Black

    There’s also Designo Mountain Grey Magno, which costs $2539.

    Cost of Ownership

    What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Mercedes-Benz EQA?

    Like the wider Mercedes-Benz range, the EQA is covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty which is one of the leading programs in the premium segments.

    Scheduled servicing is required every 12 months or 25,000 kilometres – whichever comes first.

    Pre-paid servicing plans are available for the EQA, covering up to five years or 125,000km. The five-year package costs $2200.

    Our launch drive route wasn’t really indicative of real-world driving despite the mix of urban and extra urban environments, so we’ll need to get the EQA in for a more realistic idea of its real-world energy consumption.

    We did, however, travel some 150-200km with some more dynamic, heavy-footed stints and we ended the day with around half a battery’s worth of charge.

    Servicing is required every 12 months or 25,000km, whichever comes first, and Mercedes-Benz offers three-, four- and five-year service plans.

    These are priced at $1600, $2200 and $2650, respectively.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Mercedes-Benz EQA drivability?

    Power in the EQA 250 comes from a front-mounted asynchronous electric motor outputting 140kW and 375Nm. There’s a single-speed transmission that has been configured “for the requirements of the front-wheel drive system”.

    The 420V lithium-ion battery pack’s capacity measures 66.5kWh (usable), with Australian-spec cars claiming 412 kilometres (WLTP, combined) of range per charge. With the optional panoramic sunroof, that drops to 408km.

    Claimed energy consumption is rated at 16.2kWh/100km (ADR, combined), with the battery itself part of a thermal management system that can be heated or cooled using a coolant-fed plate underneath the battery.

    The EQA can be charged from 10-80 per cent using the available Mercedes-Benz Wallbox in around 4 hours 15 minutes (AC, 11kW), and is compatible with 100kW DC fast-charging capable of replenishing the same amount of charge in just 30 minutes.

    Mercedes-Benz Australia will also be supplying two cables – an 8m Australian domestic socket cable, and a 5m public charge station cable – which are compatible with the inbuilt Type 2 CCS plug.

    EQA Safety Rating

    ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

    The Mercedes-Benz EQA has a five-star rating from ANCAP based on testing conducted in 2019.

    It received an adult occupant protection rating of 97 per cent, a child occupant protection rating of 92 per cent, a vulnerable road user protection rating of 81 per cent, and a safety assist rating of 77 per cent.

    Atop the standard nine airbags, safety equipment includes:

    • Autonomous emergency braking
    • Lane-keep assist
    • Blind-spot monitoring
    • Traffic sign monitoring
    • Reversing camera
    • Safe exit warning
    • Adaptive cruise control with stop/go

    EQA Warranty

    What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Mercedes-Benz EQA?

    The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQA range is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    Servicing is required every 12 months or 25,000km, whichever comes first, and Mercedes-Benz offers three-, four- and five-year service plans.

    EQA Infotainment

    What infotainment do you get within the range?

    There’s the lovely dual 10.25-inch MBUX displays as well, encompassing the driver instrument binnacle as well as the central infotainment system.

    You’ll find native satellite navigation, wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the ‘Hey Mercedes’ intelligent virtual assistant, and your usual Bluetooth phone/audio streaming, DAB radio as well as a wireless phone charger.

    Available as an option is the ‘MBUX High’ which adds an augmented reality (AR) function to the navigation system, using a front-facing camera to stream real-time video onto the infotainment display and project street names, navigation instructions and more for a techy, video-game-like experience.

    EQA Boot Space

    How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Mercedes-Benz EQA?

    The boot area is similarly impacted, if to a lesser extent. Quoted capacity is 340L, with a boot floor 10mm higher than a GLA. Dimensionally, it measures 797mm by 1050mm (L x W).

    With the rear seats folded (almost flat), there’s a claimed 1320L available. For reference, a GLA250 4Matic quotes 435L/1430L.

    EQA Dimensions

    The dimensions of the Mercedes-Benz EQA

    The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQA measures 4463mm long, 1834mm wide and 1620mm tall, with a 2729mm wheelbase.

    Depending on the variant, the 2023 MERCEDES-BENZ EQA measures as below.

    EQA Market Fit

    Where does it fit in the competitor segment?

    The Mercedes-Benz EQA is categorised as a Small SUV

    Should you buy the EQA

    Is this the right car for you? Our experts buy or not guide.

    The second member of the EQ family is a competitive offering in the premium compact EV segment, if not a standout against an emerging competitor set.

    It’s arguably the most luxurious and refined version of the GLA you can buy at the moment, and offers a familiar cabin and features if you’re a Benz customer.

    There are some caveats, though. The EQA 250 lacks the performance of both the Tesla Model 3 Long Range and the new Volvo XC40 Recharge EV, while the cheaper Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro EV Sport offer more range for less money (and qualify for rebates).

    Further, the compromised packaging in the back seat and boot as a result of the electric hardware is worth noting, and ticking options boxes will send the price beyond the $90,000 mark once it hits the road.

    Give it a look, but there’s better value options out there.
