With a wheelbase of 111 inches and 23 cubic feet of cargo space, transporting luggage, groceries and sporting equipment is easy. It also has an additional 3rd row as 2 additional seats unfold.
The powertrain on the EQB comes 2 ways; a 225 hp EQB 300 and a 288hp EQB 350. Both are standard all wheel drive as the electric motor is located on each axle.
The EQ specific styling features the black grille panel with the Mercedes star and bi-or tri-color wheel choices in either blue or rose gold accents. The LED headlights and taillights were designed specifically for the EQ vehicles and features a light band that runs between them. An AMG Line Package is available as an option.
The EQB’s cockpit has a set of dual 10.25 inch displays, one for the instrument panel and one a touchscreen for infotainment. The EQB has the latest MBUX operating system (Just Say “Hey Mercedes”), including augmented reality navigation system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
