EQS SUV is shorter than the sedan

To get a better feel for the new electric model, let’s start with the dimensions. And one thing is clear: the EQS SUV is big. However, not as big as the sedan.
With a length of 5.13 meters, it is almost ten centimeters shorter than the combustion engine counterpart GLS and also smaller than the EQS with its 5.22 meters. The SUV is naturally a bit wider (plus six centimeters to the EQS) and of course significantly higher (plus 20 centimeters to the EQS). At 3.21 meters, the wheelbase is identical for both EQS versions.

Compared to the EQS sedan, the SUV counterpart is 20 centimeters higher.

Dimensions Mercedes EQS SUV

Length: 5125mm
Broad: 1959mm
Height: 1718mm
Wheelbase: 3210mm
trunk volume: 645-2100 liters (seven-seater: 565-2020 liters)

Typical EQ design also for the EQS SUV

A big surprise is the look of the EQS SUV not. Because not only the name is strongly based on the already well-known electric sedan from Mercedes, but also that design. At the front, both have the EQ black panel grille with a large implied radiator and integrated headlights (on the SUV with three small triangles as a daytime running light signature), a strip of lights forms the end of the front hood. The SUV is delivered with LED headlights as standard, the “Digital Light” is available for an extra charge.

The design of the EQS SUV is strongly based on the EQS sedan and the smaller EQE.

In the side view, recessed door handles (as in the limousine) and running boards. Typical SUV are the black wheel arches. The rear of the EQS SUV is significantly steeper than the sedan, the rear lights with the well-known “coil” light graphic are similar to those of the sedan.

Customers can also choose from different rim designs in different sizes from 20 to 22 inches. The popular AMG line is of course also available.

Luxurious interior with up to seven seats

Exquisite choice of materials, skilled workmanship, sometimes sophisticated design (Mercedes stars in the wood): If you are looking for an SUV with even more attention to detail, you have to look at Bentley and Co. Everything is softly padded, visually and haptically the EQS SUV is flattering on all seats.

The 141 centimeter wide hyperscreen consists of three individual screens that merge visually with each other. In the EQS SUV it costs extra.

The rear seat with angle adjustment does not tilt the backrest as far back as hoped, so you doze in the second row not quite as comfortably as, for example, in the Audi Q7. It can be adjusted in length by 13 centimeters as standard, which increases the trunk from 645 to 880 liters. If you fold down the second row in a 40:20:40 ratio, you can even stow 2100 liters in the EQS SUV, which is suitable for moving.
The electric car is also available as a seven-seater for a surcharge. Two individual seats can be folded out of the trunk floor. However, the third row is not particularly spacious for an SUV with a length of 5.13 meters (BMW X7 and even Dacia Jogger have more space in the third row).

Optionally, the SUV can also be ordered with two individual seats in the third row, but the space is not ample.

The hyperscreen should not be missing either

But the mighty hyperscreen, in which three screens optically merge into one 1.41 meter wide mega screen, still makes an impression in the third row of seats. But that’s not all, for the second row there is the “MBUX High-End Rear Seat Entertainment Plus” package with two 11.6-inch displays.

Last but not least, a word about getting in: The large doors make it a pleasure to get in, both front and back – if the running boards didn’t rub against your ankles. However, because the side protection reduces air resistance (the boards are flush with the underbody, which is usually not the case with combustion SUVs), this design is tolerated.

Mercedes EQS SUV in three performance levels

At the market launch, Mercedes is offering the EQS SUV in three versions. Customers can choose between the rear-wheel drive EQS 450+, the EQS 450 4Matic and the EQS 580 4Matic.
