Cutting-edge technology meets the pinnacle of luxury with the new EQS SUV, now on sale from £129,170 OTR in the UK.

At launch two variants of the EQS SUV will be available, the four-wheel drive EQS 450 4MATIC which features up to 365 miles of range, or alternatively the four-wheel drive EQS 580 4MATIC, with up to 364miles.

Interior specification of the EQS SUV differs depending on what trim line a customer pics. For AMG Line Premium Plus, the car will feature black Nappa leather and anthracite wood trim. Business Class trim uses macchiato beigne Nappa leather and ship deck wood.

Interior technology is also central to the EQS SUV. This means that the Mercedes-Benz Hyperscreen, with its three high definition OLED displays, is available. It comes as standard on EQS 580 and is an option on the EQS 450 Premium Plus.

Also included is the latest generation MBUX infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB-C and wireless charging and a Heads-up display for the driver. The voice control based ‘Hey Mercedes’ interior assistant can be used to ask MBUX to control all sorts of vehicle functions, from interior lighting colours, to directions to the nearest EV rapid charger.

Performance on both vehicles is as you would expect from a premium electric SUV. For the EQS 450 4MATIC , that means a 0-62 time of just 6, while the EQS 580 4MATIC is even quicker at 4.6 . On road dynamics are improved with the addition of rear-wheel steering, 10 degrees as standard. This means improved agility when manoeuvring at slower speeds, with the rear wheels working alongside the front wheel steering angle at speed to bring stability and handling benefits.

Off-road the EQS SUV is capable of raising its ride height using the standard AIRMATIC air suspension by 25mm, with the dynamic select driving modes now also having a dedicated OFF ROAD mode. The SUV credentials are also further improved via the technology available in the car, with a set of dedicated off-road displays for MBUX and a specific screen for the heads-up display.

Refinement and luxury are central to the EQS SUV, which means special acoustic foams as well as rubber insulation of the electric drive units have been used to reduce interior cabin noise to a near whisper. This allows the driver to concentrate on the Mercedes-Benz only Dolby Atmos and Apple Spatial Audio sound experience that the Burmester sound system delivers.
