Mercedes-Benz EQS 450 4Matic SUV Takes EV To New Heights

With the premiere of its vanguard electric offerings in the midst of the pandemic and economic turmoil, the Mercedes-Benz established lineage to the founding of modern personal transportation has come full circle.

Without the feverish rush of the Tesla sales run up, loyal and prosperous Mercedes buyers will find the new EQS series are up to the lofty standards of the world’s greatest automaker.

The 2023 EQS 450 4matic SUV is pure sensory marvel, driving confidence, comfort and security, and because of demand for SUV convenience and practicality, it upstages the traditionally elegant EQS EV sedan version.

Of the three SUV powertrain trims, two shared with the EQS sedan, our Mercedes 450 4Matic test vehicle featured front and rear electric motors providing all-wheel-drive and a total 355 horsepower and really impressive 590 lb feet of torque traction and amazing stability.

Gracious and athletic within the SUV profile, the EQS SUV makes a statement with boldly complex front end styling. Inside the EQS is breathtaking with an expanse of visual displays suitable for a spacecraft command center, with a price as tested of $135,000.
