The interior of the Mercedes-AMG EQS Sedan would be at home in the Starship Enterprise as a full-on tech assault greets you when getting inside, such as the enormous 56-inch Hyperscreen that stretches the entire width of the dashboard that is standard in the AMG. Top-class materials are used, with AMG carbon-fiber finishes and premium Nappa leather abounding. Other trim choices include the obligatory wood if you prefer things a trifle more traditional. There's plenty of interior space in the AMG EQS, with the one notable exception being rear-seat headroom due to that sloping roofline.
The Mercedes-AMG EQS Sedan's seats are extremely comfortable and the front pews are not only heated and ventilated but come with a standard massaging feature as well. Heated rear seats are also standard fare. Seating comfort in the second row is further upgraded when opting for the Pinnacle sub-trim, which adds rear-seat ventilation and massaging as well. Rear-seat legroom is an ample 40.4 inches, so it's a bit of a shame that all this comfort is a moot point for tall passengers since the severely sloping rear roofline limits headroom to just 38 inches, which means that passengers no taller than six feet can be accommodated in comfort back there. The EQS is easy to see out of, and the standard backup and surround-view cameras - along with the rear-axle steering - make maneuvering the big car easy. Parking is even easier, as you can leave it to the standard automated parking assistant to perform.

There are four interior colors for the Mercede-AMG EQS Sedan's standard Nappa leather upholstery. Besides the default Black/Space Grey, the other three no-cost options are Black/Sable Brown and Neva Grey/Sable Brown, or non-AMG Black/Space Grey Nappa leather. The Neva color scheme comes with its own grey microfiber headliner, which cannot be had with any of the other color schemes. The standard trim is in AMG Carbon Fiber, but three no-cost natural-grain wood options are offered: Anthracite Linden, Brown Walnut, and Yacht-design Brown Walnut. The standard flat-bottomed AMG Performance steering wheel is trimmed in Nappa leather but this can be exchanged for a wheel with microfiber for the side grips and Nappa leather for the top and bottom of the wheel - at no extra cost. A third option is offered for the first time this year at a price of $900: A microfiber/carbon-fiber steering wheel with microfiber side grips and carbon fiber for the top and bottom of the wheel.
Thanks to a practical rear hatch, the trunk space of the Mercedes-AMG EQS Sedan is an impressive 22 cubic feet, just three cu-ft short of the commodious Tesla Model S. What's more, the 40/20/40-split rear seat can be folded to increase trunk volume even further to 63 cu-ft - just beating the Tesla's figure. There are plenty of spaces and cubbies in the cabin to store things, too, including four generously sized door pockets, a big storage area underneath the floating center console, a storage compartment with two cupholders under a sliding lid at the front of the center console, a lidded cubby under the center front armrest, two rear cupholders in the fold-down center armrest, and a small netted storage area on the left-hand side of the trunk to keep small items from rolling around.
The AMG EQS is a fully kitted-out luxury sedan with a list of standard features as long as your arm. Some of the exterior highlights include 21-inch AMG alloy wheels, all-LED exterior lighting, a glass panorama roof, keyless go, and a power liftgate. Inside, it comes standard with Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats with 12-way power adjustment and massaging, heated rear seats, active ambient interior lighting, dual-zone climate control, and a wireless charging pad. The suite of driver assists is comprehensive, too, comprising Merc's Pre-Safe systems, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, automated parking, and a surround-view camera system. The higher sub-trims gain items such as quad-zone climate control, power-adjustable and ventilated rear seats, and a rear wireless charging pad. Options include air-filtration and fragrance systems, a carbon-fiber/microfiber steering wheel, and insulated glass.
The infotainment system comes with the full-width MBUX Hyperscreen, which is to say a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, a 17.7-inch center touchscreen and multimedia display, and a 12.3-inch passenger display. The system has all the features, including Mercedes-Benz's Zero-layer menu concept, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation with route-based speed adaptation and electric intelligence, "Hey, Mercedes" keyword activation, online and Bluetooth audio streaming, six USB-C charging ports, SiriusXM with a six-month Platinum subscription, NFC technology, HD Radio, a front wireless charging pad, and a 15-speaker Burmester audio system. The Pinnacle sub-trim's rear cabin also gets a wireless charging pad. A front-cabin MBUX Interior Assistant is optional for $350, while a dashcam costs $200, and the AMG Track Pace functionality will add $250 to the bill, allowing you to store performance-driving data in the MBUX system.
The AMG EQS Sedan's trunk holds 22 cu-ft of luggage and can be expanded to 63 cu-ft by folding the second row.
The AMG EQS Sedan has a maximum seating capacity of five adults, but the center rear position is more cramped, so it should ideally be seen as a comfortable four-seater.
There are four cupholders in total - two in front and two in the rear.
