5 Cool Features of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB Electric Luxury SUV
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB is an extremely unique vehicle in its class for one reason. This is the only small all-electric luxury SUV that offers optional seating for seven people. While some might think a shoehorn is required to get everyone inside, this Mercedes-Benz SUV is an excellent family vehicle with a relatively affordable price. Here are some of the cool features you’ll find in the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB.
1. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB includes an intelligent navigation system
Electric vehicles are entering the automotive market in droves, which means a change to our driving and thinking. This Mercedes-Benz electric luxury SUV factors in the batteries when mapping a route in the navigation system. This enhanced technology should keep more miles in your battery between charges. If an accident causes a traffic jam, the recalculated route still considers the battery.
2. Massaging front seats are a must in this electric luxury SUV
You’ll need to check a box to add these seats as an optional item, but they are worth the added cost. No matter your commute or the number of errands you run throughout the day, there’s always a good time for a refreshing back massage. These seats are also heated and ventilated to be the full comfort package during your drive.
3. Rock out with the clear sounds from the Burmester audio system
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB includes a 12-speaker/590-watt surround-sound Burmester audio system in the top Pinnacle trim. This system provides clear and wonderful sounds to turn your electric luxury SUV’s cabin into a concert hall. Don’t mind those other drivers staring at you; they must hate fun.
4. Use the MBUX system with your natural voice
Forget the days of over-annunciating your words just to get your car to listen to you. This Mercedes-Benz SUV includes the latest version of the Mercedes-Bez User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. This system includes natural speak voice commands that simply begin by saying “Hey Mercedes” and go from there. Of course, you can still go old school and use the touchscreen or the touchpad on the steering wheel if you like.
5. This electric luxury SUV helps you drive more efficiently
It’s 2023, and vehicles have gotten smarter than ever. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB helps you be a more efficient driver through Eco Assist. This feature understands the hills, bends, and intersections that could drain some of the energy from the battery. You’ll see driving suggestions on the screen, such as easing off the accelerator for speed limit changes. This system also has a DAuto system in the transmission to automatically select the amount of regenerative braking.
Is the third row of the 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB room enough?
Passengers or cargo? This will be the question you face when you have the optional third-row seat in the back. There’s room for car seats and people up to 5.5 feet tall; otherwise, this rear seat is too small to be useful. Of course, if you’ve got young kids that like to bring friends along, that rearmost row could be where they sit when tagging along on a night out.
