Front and rear mounted electric motors which provide all-wheel drive the eqs suv comes standard with an adjustable air suspension and a rear axle steering system that makes it surprisingly agile unlike the sedan the suv features an off-road drive mode that raises the suspension and alters the powertrain’s behavior during a ride-along in a prototype model

We experience these settings first hand on rugged terrain and were impressed with the vehicle’s capabilities even if we’re convinced most people who buy an eqs suv will never attempt such activities although mercedes hasn’t confirmed range estimates for the eqs suv it uses the same 107.8-kwh battery pack as the eqs sedan which is epa rated at between 340

Those fitted with a third row max out at 28 cubes behind the second row but that volume shrinks to seven cubes when the third row isn’t stowed for maximum theater the eqs suv can be equipped with mercedes mesmerizing 56-inch hyperscreen which stretches across the wheel width of the dashboard along with housing the digital gauge cluster it hosts a 17.7 inch

Touchscreen that’s primarily responsible for infotainment functions plus a 12.3 inch touchscreen in front of the passenger there’s no doubt that the novelty of the glass covered dash will entice buyers but we can’t help but bemoan the near total lack of physical switchgear those who don’t opt for the hyperscreen will still get a digital gauge cluster and a
