I'm trying to get a EQC test drive at the moment but would be happy just being allowed to sit in one at the moment - my local Mercedes (Glos/Chelt) garage is telling me they are not allowed to arrange test drives / opening the car until lockdown ends which I totally understandMy OH is a MB fangirl.
She had an EQC for a weekend test drive.
Like the EQA it's a modified vehicle from their present range, the GLC, I think.
We both thought it was quite good, certainly for motorway cruising and A-roads.
Unfortunately, a bit of spirited driving on local B-roads showed it to be the biggest pile of **** imagineable. Centre of gravity far too high, handles like a carthorse.
I'll assume that the EQA will be the same compromised nonsense.
I'd imagine MB will be the first of the German legacy car-makers to go bankrupt. The future is now, not in a couple of decades.
I really want to do just test two things with the car before considering cancelling my Audi and having an EQC...
i) Wife and I want to just just sit in an AMG Line version to ensure I fit in the seat (I'm a big - 22 stone - tall - 6 foot 3.5 person) and can see out the window properly - I tried a C-Class saloon last year and my line of vision was blocked by the roofline coming down too low before the windscreen started.
ii) I want to try our dog cage in the boot of the car to see how much room it leaves us LOL - especially as there is no 'froot / frunk' to store the charging cable as well.
