By virtue of its muscular proportions, the EQC is classed as a crossover SUV. The extended roofline and window layout with a low waistline and the coupé-like roof recess at the rear visually position it between an SUV and an SUV coupé.
The seats are comfortable and adjustable which is what you expect in a Mercedes-Benz car. But the most attractive features is the full-width rear led strip which makes the car stand out even at night.
