2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 4Matic : 7 Pros and 5 Cons

423 km WLTP range is sufficient for urban commutes and medium-distance highway drives.

Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 4Matic Pros

  • Fantastic CBU build quality, with GLS-inspired styling. Fits the 'Baby GLS' moniker
  • Top-notch performance with dual electric motors and 4MATIC AWD. Regen mode can enable single-pedal driving
  • 423 km WLTP range is sufficient for urban commutes and medium-distance highway drives
  • Impressive ride & handling for a 2+ tonne SUV. Great real-world ground clearance adds practicality
  • Zero tailpipe emissions & green image will appeal to the environmentally-conscious
  • Tastefully appointed cabin. Loaded to the gills with features, safety kit & technology
  • Road tax exemptions in many states likely to make it a compelling proposition in its segment

Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 4Matic Cons

  • Range not quite enough for long-distance touring. Range anxiety will be a factor on road-trips
  • Third row has awkward accessibility and limited space. Not a true 7-seater
  • DC fast charging unlikely to be widely available in near future. 11 kW AC charging takes overnight for a full charge
  • Missing features like a spare tyre (!!!), ventilated seats which cheaper cars get, etc.
  • Boot space with all rows up is a measly 110 liters. A better 465 liters with 3rd row down, but the optional spare tyre will chew away useable space
