Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The Mercedes-Benz EQB stands out in this class as the only EV that’s essentially a version of an existing gasoline model.

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing here—and many of its rivals try a little too hard to embrace the future.

The Tesla Model Y starts at a higher price than the EQB and doesn’t offer anything close to the Mercedes’ luxurious cabin.

The Jaguar I-Pace has improved significantly since its rollout, although its interior feels cramped in comparison.

The Audi Q4 will closely follow the VW ID.4, which makes it the lowest-priced of the premium crossover EVs.

The Genesis GV60 is a step smaller than the rest of this cohort, but its coupe-like interior is a standout for stylistas.

Finally, the Cadillac Lyriq might be seen as an alternative as, while it’s a size larger than the EQB, it starts at around the same price and also emphasizes a quiet cabin and great ride.
