At an exceptionally high level

Jan 20, 2021
Stuttgart

Even the base model of the EQA is already generously equipped, and is based on the Progressive line found in the GLA. The new model can be personalised with either of the two design and equipment lines Electric Art and AMG Line, as well as with the Night Package. For the first year after the market launch, an Edition 1 special model will be available. This includes, for example, special cyber-cut perforation of the leather that allows the shimmering blue fabric underneath to show through.

The level of equipment in the base-model EQA is already at an elevated level: the standard specification includes such features as LED High Performance headlamps with Adaptive Highbeam Assist, the EASY-PACK tailgate with electrically operated opening and closing, 18-inch light-alloy wheels, ambient lighting with 64 colours, a double cup holder, luxury seats with four-way adjustable lumbar support, a reversing camera for added convenience and a better overview when manoeuvring, and a multifunction sports steering wheel in leather. Also included as standard are the intuitively operated infotainment system MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) and the Navigation with Electric Intelligence system.

Night Package and Edition 1: even more opportunities for personalisation

The Night Package comprises the following elements: claddings in black with inserts in high-gloss black, exterior mirror housings painted black[7], shoulderline trim strip and window line trim strip in high-gloss black, roof rails in matt black, heat-insulating tinted glass from the B-pillar back; 45.7 cm (18-inch) light-alloy wheels in a 5-twin-spoke design, painted black and with a high-sheen finish, simulated underride guards in the front and rear aprons in high-gloss black.

The Edition 1 is available for one year from the launch of the EQA. Its exterior features include the AMG black panel radiator grille, AMG bodystyling for the front and rear bumpers, shoulderline trim strip in chrome and 20-inch, rosé gold-coloured AMG multispoke wheels. A highlight in the interior is provided by neva grey leather seats, with blue fabric appearing through their cyber-cut perforations. The decorative topstitching in the door trim and the armrest, as well as the inner air control ring of the ventilation outlets are blue. The spiral-look trim element is back-lit. Special floor mats with Edition 1 lettering and blue piping round off the overall look.

Progressive Luxury with intelligence: ENERGIZING comfort control with PowerNap function

The EQA uses its intelligent system to think for its passengers and pamper them: ENERGIZING comfort control links together various comfort systems in the vehicle, using lighting and musical moods plus a number of massage options to deliver a wide range of feel-good programmes. The ENERGIZING Package Plus is available as an option for the EQA. Special function of the EQA courtesy of its high energy reserves: during a short break in a journey e.g. at motorway services or a charging station, the PowerNap programme may be selected. The programme has three phases – falling asleep, sleeping, waking – and can enhance the performance of the driver and provide new energy.

Further programmes are Warmth, Joy, Comfort, Refresh and Vitality as well as Training (three training modes – muscle relaxation, muscle activation and balance – each with several exercises). The training can also be carried out while driving.

The ENERGIZING COACH recommends programmes according to the situation. If the Mercedes-Benz vivoactive® 3 smartwatch, the Mercedes-Benz Venu® smartwatch or another compatible Garmin® wearable is linked, personal values such as stress level or sleep quality optimise the precision of the recommendation. Via the Mercedes me App, the smartwatch sends vital data of the wearer to the vehicle, e.g. pulse rate, stress level and sleep quality. The aim is to ensure that the driver feels well and relaxed even during demanding or monotonous journeys. In addition, the pulse rate recorded by the integrated Garmin® wearable is shown on the media display.

ENERGIZING seat kinetics also benefit driver fitness. The system supports advantageous changes in the seating posture by means of minute movements of the seat cushion and backrest when on a journey. ENERGIZING seat kinetics is available in combination with electric seat adjustment with Memory function and with the ENERGIZING Package Plus.

URBAN GUARD: with theft notification and parking damage detection

In conjunction with Mercedes me, the two packages URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection and URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus enable all-round monitoring of the parked vehicle. URBAN GUARD comprises an anti-theft alarm system, tow-away protection with visual and acoustic warning in the case of a detected change in position, an alarm siren, interior monitoring (triggers in the case of movements in the interior) as well as a preinstallation for theft and parking collision detection. In the case of the latter, the vehicle sensors register when the parked and locked vehicle is bumped or towed – or when someone attempts to break into the vehicle. If the service is active, the driver is informed via the Mercedes me App. By means of a push notification, he/she finds out how severe the parking damage is and in which area of the vehicle it occurred, for example. As soon as the vehicle is restarted, this information is also shown once on the media display.

In addition, URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus is able to pinpoint the location of stolen vehicles. In case of theft, this also makes it possible to recover the vehicle even if the thief has deactivated the vehicle tracking function, for example. This takes place in cooperation with the police.

Trailer coupling: with quick and easy unlocking

A trailer coupling with ESP® trailer stabilisation is available as an option for the EQA. A particularly convenient feature is the electric unlocking system for the ball coupling. The unlocking switch and indicator lamp are located within the tailgate. Once the ball coupling has been unlocked it can either be pivoted out or, when not in use, pivoted back behind the bumper trim. The towing capacity (unbraked/ braked) of the front-wheel-drive model is 750 kilograms, the tongue weight 80 kilograms. The trailer coupling has been approved for use with a bicycle rack. The all-wheel-drive models will offer an even higher towing capacity.
