Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
The Mercedes EQS is a big, wide car, and that translates into generous space upfront, despite its swoopy roofline. However, while it’s also roomier in the rear than the Audi E-tron GT and Porsche Taycan, it’s not as relaxing as the Mercedes S-Class to travel in the back of, because the EQS’s standard rear seats place you in an oddly upright position.
More positively, Mercedes does offer an optional Rear Seat Comfort Package, which brings individually reclining seats with a wide range of massage programmes. We’ve yet to try a car specified with this upgrade.
