Mercedes EQE SUV: 687 hp AMG version (for busy parents) and spatial audio for onboard music

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled an SUV version of its sedan EQE. In addition to format changes, the new models are distributed via spatial audio sound, Dolby Atmos signatures, and Apple Music. A few hours before the show with the Paris Motor Show, Mercedes decided to create its own event. Global launch in the gardens of the Rodin Museum, a few hundred meters from the Eiffel Tower. If the German manufacturer has done a great job, it may be because the new car was just as big. This is not one novelty, but rather two, as the new EQE SUV comes with a particularly muscular AMG version. In the case of EQS SUV, this new model is the SUV version of the sedan EQE released this summer. It also incorporates the same aesthetic qualities with smooth lines and the famous “black panel” grille. Surprisingly, the family version of this electric sedan is shorter (4.86 meters versus 4.95 meters for the EQE), offering a better wheelbase. Spatial Audio has arrived in the car. We will take a quick look at the characteristics of both vehicles. However, it should be noted that there are four versions of the EQE SUV, including the impressive AMG. The 350+ version is based on a single rear motor (292hp and 565Nm of torque). The 350 Matic finish goes with two motors and all-wheel drive (still 292 hp but 765 Nm of torque). The third version, the 500 4Matic, increases to 408 hp and 858 Nm of torque. But what catches all eyes is definitely the AMG version with 687 horsepower and 1,000 Nm of torque. In this configuration, the family SUV (and slightly sporty) gets from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. As for autonomy, it varies by engine type, but the Benz is interesting as always. In fact, the most muscular version is limited to 460 km of autonomy, and the most versatile version brings this total to 590 km. On the other hand, on the inside, the novelty is more scattered. In fact, the interior of the EQE SUV is identical to the EQE. We found the essential Hyperscreen, a huge triple screen that runs from one edge of the dashboard to the other, which we especially had a chance to discover during our EQS tests. However, it comes with two new features. The first is to add the application directly to the car MBUX OS of the Apple Music application. Another closely linked to the first is the Dolby Atmos compatibility of the Burmester audio system. Indeed, with this double announcement, Mercedes began the advent of spatial audio in the automotive industry. We tested Spatial Audio on Mercedes. This feature is clearly reserved for the brand’s most advanced models, and is also considered an option and deserves a gradual decline in all fitted models of the Burmester 3D or 4D. The audio system is 31 speakers please. Olivier Schusser, Vice President of Apple Music, attended the presentation of the new EQE SUV, ‚ÄúSpatial Audio is an experience that cannot be described in words. You have to listen to it to appreciate it.” So we took what the Apple reps said. We had the opportunity to ride the concept of an EQE SUV equipped with the Burmester 3D system and the future Maybach with its most advanced version, the 4D. The same track, encoded in Dolby Atmos and streamed from Apple Music, was played in both cars. The results were actually very good, and the spatialization of the passenger compartment was well displayed. Mercedes sets the standard for audio, but these options include: There is a cost, depending on the system chosen, it can be between 4,500 and 7,000 euros.
