Appearance

With individualized styling, these four-door sedans are easy to differentiate on the road. The EQS has a swooping profile that sharply tapers into a rounded nose. The nose has a standout look with a glossy black grille. This grille angles into wedge-shaped LED headlights. Chrome accentuates all sides of the EQS. The smooth hood and sides show off only the hint of subtle accentuation. The 2022 S-Class, on the other hand, has a stretched profile with a decadent angle through the hood. The nose reflects a classic Mercedes-Benz design with horizontal accent bars. The headlights have a regal quality with a slender, angled shape and an LED accent bar. Throughout the sides, you will find chrome accents and precision-sculpted contouring.

Features

Inside the EQS, you can enjoy the new Hyperscreen, which stretches across the length of the dashboard and includes a 12.3-inch digital display screen for the driver’s instruments, a 12.8-inch screen for the MBUX infotainment system, and another display screen for the passenger’s entertainment feature. Additional features are a power trunk lid, wireless Apple CarPlay with Android Auto, a panoramic glass roof, forward collision mitigation, leather material, and more. The S-Class sedan has separated display screens for the digital instrumentation panel and the MBUX infotainment system. This model also has soft-close doors, a panoramic sunroof, a power trunk lid, wireless smart device integration, a wireless charging pad, and other equipment.
