At the front, the EQS can still be recognised as a Mercedes, but in profile the 'one-bow' design confuses even connoisseurs. The huge roof slopes steadily backwards and includes an elongated rear window, which is contained in the gigantic boot lid. Indeed, this is a five-door car - one with a 610-litre boot at that.
Never has the shape of a Mercedes been so determined by aerodynamics as with the EQS. The result is a Cd of 0.20, the best value ever for a production car. Wind noise is almost imperceptible, as is roll noise. As soon as you start driving it, it's like having Bose noise-cancelling headphones on your ears.
