The EQE SUV, the multi-purpose variant of the EQE executive saloon, celebrates its world premiere on 16 October 2022.

Ahead of that reveal, Mercedes has published pictures of the interior cabin, an interior that it says ‘has been consistently digitalised’. It includes an optionally available MBUX Hyperscreen. The entire instrument panel is one ultimate widescreen and the high-resolution screens merge seemingly seamlessly under a single glass cover.

The dominant outer vents have a turbine design. They deliberately play on the theme of hyperanalogue through the contrast between high-tech precision mechanics and digital, glass display world. The front section of the centre console joins the instrument panel and is free-standing in space. The vent band from the cockpit is visually continued in the front doors. A floating control cluster with integrated door opener and seat controls takes over the functional interpretation of formerly purely decorative elements.

Avantgarde as well as traditional materials and colours give the interior a special atmosphere, Mercedes claims. Five co-ordinated colour combinations underscore the generous sense of spaciousness. The EQE SUV is immersed in a progressive and luxurious world of colour comprising warm and cool tones (e.g. the warm, modern balao brown combines with technoid-looking neva grey and biscay blue/black).

A hybrid trim element ‘brings together the warmth of wood with the technical coolness of real aluminium.’ The trim in an anthracite 3D relief-look finish, on the other hand, features fine metal pigments. The laser-cut trim element backlit with the Mercedes‑Benz pattern also creates a special ambience, Mercedes says.
