Revamping Mercedes’ SUV Lineup: Fresh Updates for EQA and EQB Electric Crossovers

Mercedes has been on a roll, steadily rejuvenating its expansive SUV portfolio over recent months – an impressive undertaking considering the sheer variety it produces.

Mercedes-Benz EQB Electric SUV Pricing Announced

The latest recipients of this facelift treatment are the EQA and EQB electric crossovers. Changes to the exteriors are subtle but effective, featuring new star-studded black panels at the front, updated bumpers, and fresh taillight designs at the rear.

And that’s not all – brace yourself for four brand-new wheel designs spanning from 18 to 20 inches, accompanied by the introduction of two additional paint color options.

Speaking of the EQA, it’s undergone a touch of aerodynamic refinement. A novel leading edge for the rear wheel arch, coupled with a discreet ridge integrated into the rear lights, acts as a minuscule spoiler.

This seemingly minor adjustment, however, contributes to a significant boost in maximum range – an impressive 348 miles.

The spotlight shines brightest on the EQA 250+, featuring a robust 188bhp single motor and front-wheel drive.

It takes advantage of a larger 70.5kWh battery capacity. As for the rest of the lineup, they operate with a 66.5kWh unit, encompassing the FWD 250 (188bhp),

the dual-motor 300 4MATIC (225bhp), and the range-topping 350 4MATIC (288bhp). All variants flaunt a peak DC charging speed of 100kW.

This battery and motor configuration echoes across the EQB range, with the exception of the entry-level 250.

Remarkably, the EQB 250+ achieves a commendable 333-mile maximum range thanks to its blockier body shape.

Transitioning to the Interior

Transitioning to the Interior

The interior metamorphosis isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about technological evolution. Welcome Mercedes’ fresh (albeit occasionally vexing) steering wheel, adorned with touch-sensitive ‘buttons.’

Star motifs are generously sprinkled throughout the cabin, enriching the ambiance. In terms of tech, the standard 10.25-inch central touchscreen spans the entire range.

Furthermore, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality and enhanced parking cameras make for a more seamless user experience.

Enhanced sensors pave the way for improved safety features like lane-keep assist, while soundscapes reminiscent of Mercedes’ larger EVs elevate the driving experience.

Opt for the optional Burmester surround sound system, and you can immerse yourself in the auditory realm of ‘Silver Waves,’ ‘Vivid Flux,’ ‘Roaring Pulse,’ or ‘Serene Breeze.’ Rest assured, these aren’t fictional names; they’re the real deal.

Bringing Utility to the Forefront

Lifestyle enthusiasts have reason to celebrate, as the EQB now offers a tow bar option for the very first time.

However, this is available only with the five-seater configuration, and the towing capacity reaches 1,700kg, even with the 4WD models.

While it might not be a Herculean haul, it’s a step in the right direction.
