Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

As a company car proposition, the Suzuki Across stacks up well; its low emissions bring low tax bills, and its very good all-electric range and punchy performance sweeten the deal. But an extremely high list price narrows its appeal among private buyers; cheaper alternatives are better to drive, more comfortable, and nicer inside.

PROS
Low official CO2 emissions
Punchy performance
Long electric-only range

CONS
Very expensive
Poor infotainment system
Rivals are better to drive

PROS
Smooth and powerful drive
Great electric range and CO2
Practical and high-quality interior

CONS
Very expensive
Ride is a touch firm
Shorter warranty than Toyota

The Mercedes-Benz EQC is all new for the 2020 model year.

Pros
Plush cabin,
refined handling,
costs less than some competitors.

Cons
Some rivals offer quicker acceleration,
shorter driving range than some competing models,
infotainment system's touchpad comes with a learning curve.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
All-electric powertrain
Familiar and handsome styling
Impressive performance
Spacious interior
Customizable regen

Cons
Is 200 miles enough range?
May be too conservative for some
Too late?

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
