The Mercedes-Benz EQA was introduced in Australia in May 2021 and New Zealand in June 2021. The ANCAP safety rating for the Mercedes-Benz EQA is based on testing of its partner model, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class conducted in 2019. ANCAP was provided with technical information and additional test data to show that the test results of the B-Class also apply to the EQA. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all EQA variants.
Dual frontal, side chest (first and second row), side head and driver knee airbags are standard.
Autonomous emergency braking (City, Interurban and Vulnerable Road User) as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW) and blind spot monitor (BSM) are standard equipment.
