2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 Review

May 8th, 2022 by


The 2022 EQS sedan is the electrified flagship of the luxury brand, Mercedes-Benz. It’s been honored by Car and Driver on this year’s Editors’ Choice list, and has received stellar reviews from both experts and consumers. This week, we are highlighting this deluxe cruiser and all of the colorful features that go with it!

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is quite a looker with its sleek and defined physique, and signature sloped design. The knockout headlights and virtual grille mesh well with other frontal features such as the elongated LED running lights.

The interior welcomes its passengers into another dimension, starting with its sensational Hyperscreen. This giant of a dashboard bears little to no resemblance to one at all, particularly since it’s just one large screen. There are actually three displays that separate into their own section, with the 12.3-inch driver display acting as the housing unit for the gauge cluster, offering several pieces of information about the car.  The passenger’s side also gets a 12.3 screen that manages Mercedes’s MBUX infotainment system.

Those who are already familiar with the brand will easily get acquainted with systems like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, together with the virtual assistance of the MBUX system, using the greeting “Hey Mercedes”, followed by a command.

If the Hyperscreen doesn’t knock your socks off, then the heads-up display with augmented reality certainly will. This vehicle has an eye-tracking system that shows emerging turns, increasing the field of vision for the driver as they approach his or her turn. This feature also works like a gem with adaptive cruise control.

When it comes to the drive, the suspension is tuned to perfection and almost makes it feel like you’re floating. Whether you’re stuck in a traffic jam or zipping in and out of lanes on the freeway, this flagship is too easy to get comfortable with and absorbs any bump or imperfection on the road without missing a beat.

There are two variants of the EQS that seem to personify the word “accelerate”. The 450 Plus has an energetic output of 329 horsepower and 419 lb-ft of torque for the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) system. This allows this car to reach 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. Then, the 580 really turns on the heat with an output of 516 hp and 613 lb-ft of torque, zipping 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.

One prominent driving feature is the EQS’s regenerative braking system, sporting four behavior levels: Comfort, Sport, Eco, and Individual. There is even a Smart Mode that adjusts the regenerative system according to different factors like traffic and road topography, along with activating its one-pedal driving system in urban areas. 

According to the company, a 200-watt DC fast charger can get the EQS battery from 10 percent capacity to 100 percent in just 31 minutes. Charging with a 220-volt charger at home, the EQS will reach a full charge in just over 11 hours.

Standard in-car features include a Burmester surround-sound audio system, tilt-and-slide panoramic roof, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient interior lighting, and an Acoustic Comfort Package that tacks on more insulation for the interior. There is even a Parking Package, surround-view monitor, and a fingerprint scanner for driver authentication.
