The new EQS SUV: the interior dimensions and variability

Apr 19, 2022

The new EQS SUV shares the long wheelbase (3210 millimetres) with the EQS Saloon, but is over 20 centimetres higher. The interior dimensions benefit from these generous SUV dimensions and from the advantages of the purpose design tailored to the electric platform. A third row of seats with two additional individual seats and extensive comfort features for all passengers is available as an option.

The space offered by the EQS SUV (length/width[1]/height[2]: 5125/1959/1718 millimetres) is generous. Headroom in the first row of seats with sliding sunroof is 1035 millimetres, in the second it is 1030 and in the third 900 millimetres. Shoulder room and elbow room in the first and subsequent rows of seats are also above average.

The second row of seats can be electrically adjusted fore and aft by up to 130 millimetres as standard. As a result, the knee room in the second row of seats is between 830 and 960 millimetres - a comfortable level. The backrests of the second row of seats recline electrically: by 14 degrees to the front and 4 to the rear. The corresponding switches are located in the doors on the right and left.

Because the second row of seats is electrically adjustable as standard, the luggage compartment can be continuously expanded from 645 litres (for maximum legroom) to up to 880 litres. This means that even with five occupants, up to 24 crates of mineral water or four golf bags can be transported. With the second row of seats folded down, the luggage compartment offers a generous volume of up to 2100 litres. With an optional third row of seats, there is generous boot space available too: There are up to 800 litres behind the second row of seats and 2020 litres when they are folded down. If all seven seats are used, a volume of 195 litres remains behind the third row of seats.

The seat backrests can be divided and folded down in a 40:20:40 ratio. They can also be electrically adjusted in inclination. In the so-called cargo position, they angle up more steeply. Larger objects can then be transported without folding them down. The cargo position can be activated with switches in the interior. The height under the open tailgate is 1978 millimetres. Even tall people have sufficient headroom for loading.

As an option, the EQS SUV has a third row of seats with two additional individual seats. The seats in the EQS SUV fold up from the load floor mechanically. With the seats folded, the floor is level. In combination with the third row of seats, an EASY ENTRY function is standard in the second row of seats. For easier access all the way to the rear, the backrest thus moves forward beyond the usual adjustment range, by up to a total of 290 millimetres.
