Introduction

What Car? says...

It’s not just potential buyers of the Mercedes EQS who should be interested in reading this review, but rather every prospective Mercedes buyer for the next decade or more.

You see, S-badged Mercedes have always previewed dazzling new technology that will later tumble down to cheaper models in the company's model line-up – and the EQS luxury car continues that tradition.

Over the course of this review we’ll look at what you get with each of those trims, plus we’ll rate the EQS in all the important areas and reveal how it compares with other high-end electric cars, including the Audi E-tron GT, Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S.

We’ll also let you know whether it's a better luxury car than its petrol or diesel-powered sibling, the Mercedes S-Class.

And, remember, before you buy any new car, be sure to check out the deals available through our free What Car? New Car Deals service. It could save you thousands of pounds without the hassle of haggling, and features lots of new electric car deals.
