For 2023, Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new trim level for buyers to choose from, now with three on offer. The range comprises the EQB 250+, EQB 300 4Matic, and EQB 350 4Matic. The 250+ is equipped with a single motor that provides 188 hp and 284 lb-ft, and the best-estimated range of the bunch, at 250 miles.
Next up, we have the EQB 300 4Matic. The twin-motor setup delivers 225 hp and 288 lb-ft and an estimated range figure of 243 miles. The 300 is well-equipped and ships standard with LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats, cruise control, and a powered tailgate.
Safety and infotainment are also well taken care of. The 300 receives seven airbags and a comprehensive list of driver assists. Active Brake Assist, Attention Assist, and Crosswind Assist are just a few of the many features. Inside, you'll find the MBUX infotainment system is feature-rich, with standard navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, and more.
The 350 sits at the peak of the EQB range with more power (288 hp and 324 lb-ft) and less range (227 miles). Its upgrades include a standard panoramic sunroof and 19-inch wheels; of course, those looking to add even more gadgets can avail themselves of the options list. The 300 and 350 can be specified with the Exclusive or Pinnacle sub-trims. The former introduces the keyless-go package, wireless charging, and the Advanced Sound System.
Pinnacle models receive everything from the base and Exclusive models, along with a surround-view camera and Burmester surround sound system. Other optional extras include Augmented video for the navigation, leather upholstery, ventilated and/or heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and AMG body styling.
The trio of Mercedes EQB SUV trims is available with a variety of packages and options. To enhance the EQB's style, buyers can select the AMG body styling which gives the little SUV a sportier, more aggressive look. This can also be specified in conjunction with the Night Package, which eschews the exterior brightwork in favor of a darkened look.
The athletic AMG kit also unlocks additional aesthetic enhancements, such as supportive sports seats, AMG floor mats, and brushed stainless steel pedals.
Let's not forget the sub-trims, Exclusive and Pinnacle. Exclusive models receive wireless charging and the keyless-go package, along with a few other nice-to-haves. The Pinnacle models step things up, with a 12-speaker Burmester sound system and surround-view camera, among other features.
