Mercedes Benz EQC
1. SPEAK YOUR PIECE
Merc’s voice-command system works okay with basic commands, but won’t dig deeper into sub-menus for you, which is where it would be more useful. Try asking, “Hey, Mercedes, adjust the bass” and, well, she ain’t no DJ...
2. CUSTOM TUNE
EQC’s ‘Individual’ drive mode allows you to tailor just three parameters, compared to the five offered on e-tron. ‘Drive’ allows more immediate throttle response, ‘Steering’ adds more wheel weight, while ‘ESP’ relaxes the stability control.
3. TAKE A SEAT
EQC’s front seats are brilliantly comfortable on a long haul. Generous side bolsters plus adjustable under-thigh support are standouts. Electric column adjustment (manual on e-tron) is handy, responding to memory preset for driving position.
