2023 EQS

As the driver, you're going to be spending a lot of time in the cockpit of your electric vehicle. The 2023 EQS and the Tesla Model S take different approaches in addressing your needs. In this section, we'll take a closer look at what awaits you.

Improved Visuals

The Model S doesn't have a dedicated platform for cockpit integration; however, it does come with the following:

  • A 17-inch touchscreen with left-right tilt that offers 2200 x 1300 resolution
  • True colors
  • Great responsiveness for gaming, movies, and other multimedia
  • Console-level gaming

In response, the 2023 EQS offers a bit more. Although the touchscreen is smaller, it utilizes Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology, which:

  • Does not require external backlighting
  • Has active pixels that appear clearer and crisper
  • Reduces overall energy consumption
  • Uses pressure-sensitive response
  • Uses haptic feedback

These features work hard to provide an immersive experience when controlling features and applications.

Meet Your Digital Copilot

Building on this is the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), which offers a radical new way to experience your driving life. Aside from the integration of the digital in-dash touchscreen features above, the MBUX includes:

  • Bluetooth®* hands-free and audio streaming
  • An industry-advancing voice control system that responds to your everyday speaking voice and phrasing of commands
  • Set up multiple user profiles of favored settings, and groups of settings can be saved as themes or moods

This gives the 2023 EQS a heady advantage. While the Model S features Bluetooth®*, only the 2023 EQS offers standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ as well, which makes connecting effortless no matter where you’re sitting in the cabin.

You might ask: What is best in life? We see the answers here in the luxury features that our compared vehicles offer.

Daring Technology

The Model S offers a terrific sound system with:

  • 22 speakers at 960 watts
  • Active Road Noise Reduction gives you an opportunity of immersive listening and studio-grade sound quality

This system is a strong entry from Tesla that agrees to provide the best sound possible. In response, the 2023 EQS offers more of an “experience,” than a system. Let's take a closer look at the EQS Sound Experience:

  • Acoustic foams, special glass, and more, complement the natural quiet of the electric EQS drivetrain
  • Burmester® 3D Surround Sound system with EV Sound**
  • Sound Personalization can tailor settings to your individual tastes
  • Available soundscapes: Silver Waves, Vivid Flux, and Roaring Pulse, all available via over-the-air download
  • Soundscapes respond interactively to driving mode and style

The EQS Sound Experience has a strong base with the Burmester® 3D Surround Sound System, creating a truly immersive sonic experience.** The availability of soundscapes tells us that while traditional audio is still a core focus, the 2023 EQS is daring to experiment with new modes of sound and how you integrate that into your own driving style.

Cozy Comforts

Beyond filling your ears with studio-quality entertainment, you’ll also be able to kick back, relax, and enjoy the ride in either all-electric sedan. Heated front seats and multi-zone automatic climate control systems come standard on either model, allowing you to warm up or cool off as you please. They have similar Pre-Entry Climate Control features as well that pre-condition your vehicle during all weather conditions.

Looking to let in some natural light? Both models come standard with a panorama roof! However, only the 2023 EQS’ feature opens to let in the breeze and deliver an open-air feel.

2023 EQS

In this last section, let's turn to our color wheel and see the various options we have. Which model offers more exterior paint options? Which one allows for more personalization? Let’s find out together.

Color Your World

The Model S has five color options:

  • Ultra Red
  • Pearl White
  • Deep Blue Metallic
  • Solid Black
  • Midnight Silver

The 2023 EQS however, ups the ante with 10 available color options, including:

  • Cirrus Silver Metallic
  • Cardinal Red Metallic
  • Diamond White
  • Nautical Blue Metallic
  • Onyx Black Metallic

More available colors is certainly a luxury all its own.

Choose Your Cruiser

You continue to have the power of choice with the 2023 EQS. This model is available in four trim levels—450+, 450+ 4MATIC®, 580 4MATIC®, and AMG EQS—while the Tesla Model S offers two trims.

With more options to choose from, you can pick a model that directly matches the performance, features, and comfort you crave. Two more options removes settling from the equation. The same can’t be said about the Tesla.
