2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4Matic Review : 7 Pros & 7 Cons

Using sensors at the front, the car detects the road surface and sets the damping at each wheel dynamically. As a result, the EQS rides very plush at slow speeds and when pushed, doesn't roll a lot in spite of its weight.

Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4Matic Pros

  • Futuristic-looking design & styling. An absolute head-turner
  • Stunning, enjoyable performance! Blistering 0-100 km/h time of 4.3 seconds
  • 850+ km claimed range (MIDC cycle), 677 km (WLTP) takes away range anxiety. An EV that can actually be used for your long highway road-trips
  • Impressive manoeuvrability, handling and body control for its size and weight. 4-wheel steering works!
  • Zero tailpipe emissions & green image will appeal to the environmentally-conscious
  • Loaded to the gills with features, safety kit & technology. The interiors will “wow” you
  • Competitive pricing. Road tax exemptions in many states make it a compelling proposition in the segment, against more conventional choices

Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4Matic Cons

  • Interior quality is not quite up to S-Class levels. It’s more “E-Class” luxury than “S-Class” opulence
  • Dismal ground clearance. Get ready to hear the sound of the floor scraping every medium-sized hump, even with the suspension height raised
  • Strange brake pedal behaviour takes getting used to in intelligent / strong regen modes. Mushy brake pedal inspires no confidence during hard braking
  • Rear seat experience is far from that of an S-Class, with lesser under-thigh support than even the E-Class. Rear headroom tight for tall passengers too
  • Missing features such as a spare tyre (!!!), rear seat massage, augmented reality head-up display...
  • Long “full tank” charging times in comparison with an ICE car. Overnight charging is best
  • Tech and electronics take a whole lot of time to figure out, especially for the less tech-savvy. Not a car you just get into and start driving
