What the Critics Say
Apart from some head toss—a function of its higher ride height and higher seating position—this little electric Mercedes SUV feels almost as calm and relaxing to be in as an S-Class. In terms of its EV competition, the EQB350 feels nowhere near as busy on poor roads as the stiffly sprung Volvo XC40 Recharge, and generates a lot less road noise than the Tesla Model Y.” — MotorTrend
There are five seats across two rows with an optional pop-up third row of seats. Nicely trimmed door panels, soft leather upholstery, and bright metal trim all lend an upscale look to the EQB’s cabin. The EQB, also like other EQ models, also features lovely rose-gold interior accents.” — Car and Driver
