Mercedes EQB interior space & storage

The Mercedes EQB may share its underpinnings with the EQA and the Mercedes A-Class but it’s unashamedly boxy in order to be as practical as possible. Its chunky stance means the Mercedes has been able to squeeze seven seats in, making it unique in the small electric SUV class. Space in the middle row is good enough for taller adults, although the floor-mounted battery means your knees sit a bit high. There’s also plenty of headroom as well, even with the panoramic glass roof in the flagship model.

As you might expect, the third row of seats aren’t that spacious; they’re meant for people under 5ft 4in, so should be fine for children. Adults may well find that access to the rearmost seats is difficult too. Family buyers will be pleased to know that even the third row of seats gets ISOFIX mounts, together with the outer seats in the middle row.

Boot space

With five seats in place, the EQB offers a generous 465-litre boot. This is one of the main reasons to choose the EQB over the EQA, which only has a 340-litre boot that’s beaten by some superminis. Fold the second and third rows and you’ll have 1,710 litres to play with - that’s up there with what big estate cars offer. All three seats in the second row fold individually.

Towing

Mercedes has yet to confirm towing capacity for the EQB, although the smaller EQA can tow a braked trailer weighing up to 1,800kg in 300 4MATIC guise. We’d expect the larger EQA to be capable of hauling at least a similar amount.
