What the Critics Say

Comfort is a strong suit of this large Benz. The front seats offer a wide range of adjustment and a good blend of firm but forgiving cushions. The EQS is also one of the quietest cars we’ve tested, with minimal outside noise making its way into the cabin.” — Edmunds

If you’re looking for the pinnacle of luxury and technology in an efficient and engaging EV, then the new EQS is for you. It’s a compelling alternative to the Tesla Model S, beating that vehicle in both build quality and panache.” — U.S. News & World Report

What’s New for 2023
