The first Mercedes-Benz EV is deliberately free of revolutionary tendencies, but for many of its SUV customers it could be an introduction to a new world of motoring.The first Mercedes-Benz fully electric vehicle (EV) to be sold in Australia has arrived. It's called the EQC and is targeted at the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, and imminent Audi e-tron.

Pros
Quiet, wafting driving experience
Loaded with cabin tech
Outstanding safety credentials
Understated design a genuine point of difference

Cons
Moderate driving range
Back seats and boot nothing special
Front suspension can get crashy
Supply appears to be quite limited

Oversells its sportiness,
pricier than rivals

The SEAT Tarraco is a practical, well-equipped seven-seater SUV with a durable cabin. It’s available with a good choice of engines but it’s very similar to the Skoda Kodiaq.

Pros
Extremely practical
Good standard equipment
Excellent engine range

Cons
Plain interior
Very similar to Skoda Kodiaq
No five-seat version
