Miniature circuit breaker – Mercedes-Benz EQA test – Car engine

The Mercedes was literally electrified, the EQC SUV was followed by the EQV, then the EQA, and the EQS revealed its charms just in time for our closing. In vain, well, they flew in, but luckily there was also traditional ammunition left in the arsenal, giving a chance to those who don’t want to say goodbye to the well-proven internal combustion technique yet.

The color of the center of the seats rhymes with the rose gold inserts on the instrument panel. The sense of space does not require compromise

One involuntarily seeks a parallel with the GLA leisure car in the standard model range, which in our case is the 220 d version following the principle of 190 hp power identity. Unsurprisingly, the diesel “half-brother” is better than the novelty following the green philosophy in several important respects: on the one hand it is HUF 5.8 million cheaper at the list price, and on the other hand it weighs a lot 4! Here and now, of course, the reasonableness of the type choice is not authoritative, but a data or two can help to better portray the EQA.

A battery built into the floor plane takes up some space in the luggage compartment, as do the charger cable bags.

As far as everyday use is concerned, the full charge range is somewhere around 400 km (NEDC standard 486, the more lifelike WLTP is 426 km), with a calm, intense acceleration-free drive of 16-19 kWh / 100 km of energy consumption. Consistent with the topographic conditions, it consumes and recharges strongly in contrast to the underfloor colonies, presumably this will be one of the most important behavioral traits that the EQA owner can play with in the long run. A great help is the engine braking effect that can be calibrated with the shift tabs, here you can select from four types of characters from freewheeling to almost nodding deceleration – clever, but it requires getting used to it. How efficient we were in the smart car equivalent of farming can be checked in the instrument panel menu showing the extent of recuperation.

The EQA is also produced in Rastatt and Beijing, and the Made in Hungary label also appears in the engine compartment. The engine room would have deserved a cover

For the time being, the chunky own weight is an unavoidable corollary of electric driving. When driving on a flat section or just a slight maneuver, you can’t feel the weight over 2 tons, but when braking harder, passing vigorously at a roundabout, you will let us know your battery life. Aerial movement is therefore excluded, but the EQA is commendable in terms of homeliness. The atmosphere of the passenger compartment is pleasant, with the exception of the rear center, it fits well, the design is absolutely modern, the functions are easy to interpret. The Rose Gold color concept of the Edition 1 is really special, but chances are it will be more configured by the ladies. I hope at least…

I LIKED IT
• design, quality
• range
• engine brake variations
I DID NOT LIKE
• large own weight
• purchase price
• engine compartment without cover

SUMMARY
In an eminent way, the smallest member of the ever-expanding EQ range is able to identify the basic ins and outs of electric driving, and the front-wheel drive version 250 also fits perfectly with the attitude and expression of brand loyalty. It is another matter that almost 20 million should therefore be called.
