The exterior of the Mercedes-AMG EQE is arguably not its best feature, and the molten-jellybean styling looks a bit ungainly to most eyes, especially for an AMG-badged car. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it does come across as a premium product with its tasteful 20-inch AMG twin-five-spoke alloy wheels, LED headlights, panorama glass roof, rear lip spoiler, and satin-silver glasshouse surround. This and other exterior brightwork, such as the chromed side sills, the chrome-accented lower front and rear bumpers, and the chromed vertical grille-panel bars, can be blacked out via either of two AMG Night packages, and the wheels can be swapped out for any of three 21-inch designs, with the black AMG multi-spoke turbine-style wheel with machined perimeter undoubtedly being the most striking.
The dimensions of the Mercedes-AMG EQE reflect its mid-size status, with a length of 196.9 inches, a wheelbase of 122.8 inches, a width of 75 inches without the mirrors (82.8 inches with the mirrors), and a height of 58.8 inches. Curb weight is a substantial 5,534 pounds.

There are 11 available exterior colors for the Mercedes-AMG EQE, and black, Polar White, and six metallics - Obsidian Black, Graphite Grey, Selenite Grey, Cirrus Silver, Twilight Blue, and Manufaktur Alpine Grey - are free. Three Manufaktur hues cost extra: Moonlight White metallic, Patagonia Red metallic (both $1,750), and the matte-finish Graphite Grey Magno ($3,250). The glasshouse surround is satin silver, and the sill extensions, vertical grille bars, and lower front and rear bumpers have chrome accents, but these can all be blacked out via either of two AMG Night packages. The standard gray brake calipers can be had in red for $700. They are painted yellow by default if the $5,400 carbon-ceramic front brakes are specified.
The car looks a little drab in the demure grayscale hues, and we think the striking Patagonia Red ($1,750) or Twilight Blue (free) better suit the AMG's intentions.
The AMG EQE comes as standard with a glass power-sliding/tilting panorama roof.
The standard alloy wheels measure 20 inches in diameter, but three 21-inch designs are optionally available.
