Interior & comfort Rating

4.5 out of 5

The EQB has a high quality interior that’s comfortable and luxurious. Upmarket materials feature throughout and, although there are some harder wearing plastics lower down, all of the main touchpoints are convincing in quality terms. All models have Mercedes' familiar MBUX dual-screen infotainment system, with two screens connected in a long black housing giving the look of a single ultra-wide screen; it’s a feature that gives the interior a digital, high-tech feel.

Refinement is good but as with any electric car, the lack of a conventional engine means that some road noise that would normally fade into the background in a petrol or diesel is more noticeable here. The upright nose and slightly boxy shape of the car means that wind noise is audible at motorway speeds, more so than in the larger EQC model, which benefits from a sleeker shape and double-glazed windows.

Mercedes EQB dashboard

Mercedes has set the benchmark for interior design of late, and the two screens connected in a long black bezel on the dashboard partly explain why . These measure 10.25-inches each and feature crisp, modern graphics that look great, while the menu structure is straightforward to use, even if reaching some functions can take several clicks. Similarly eye-catching are the chrome-lined circular air vents, which have blue rings in the EQB to indicate its electric powertrain.

Equipment

At launch, the EQB lineup consists of AMG Line and AMG Line Premium trim levels, with a Sport model due to arrive later to complete the lineup.

The AMG Line has sporty exterior styling, 18-inch alloy wheels, front and rear LED lights and tinted rear windows. The standard interior specification includes artificial leather-trimmed seats, electrically adjustable heated front sports seats, automatic climate control and a powered tailgate. Standard technology includes sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While safety equipment includes a reversing camera, lane keep assist and speed limit assist.

AMG Line Premium cars come with larger, 19-inch alloys and a panoramic sunroof as standard. Additional technology inside includes an upgraded 10-speaker premium stereo system and a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Options

Aside from the variety of interior trim colour options, buyers can specify additional driver assistance technology with the Driver Assistance Package, which adds more advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance features.
