As with every other model from the brand, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz EQE Sedan is where the car really shines. There is even more interior space than you'd find in the regular E-Class, and the EV is immaculately appointed with first-class materials. As for tech, the executive sedan comes with almost everything you could possibly want and more than a few things you've probably never thought of before. Since the majority of features are accessed through the touchscreen displays, the dashboard remains uncluttered. However, you can upgrade to the as-yet-unavailable MBUX Hyperscreen, which turns the entire dash into one gigantic display.
There is a fair amount of space inside the EQE, with both driver and passengers provided with more than enough room to stretch out and enjoy the experience. There is 40.1 inches of headroom up front, but due to the sloping roofline, this drops to 38 inches in the back. Similarly, front-row occupants get a more generous 41.7 inches of legroom, while those in the back still have plenty of room with 38.2 inches. The seats of the Mercedes-Benz EQE Sedan are extremely comfortable as standard, but you can upgrade to multicontour sports seats with heating, ventilation, and massage functions if you desire.

As you'd expect from Mercedes, the materials used to adorn the interior of its latest sedan are truly sumptuous. This is true even of the MB-Tex synthetic leather found on the seating of the 350 models. With this, the interior colors for the Mercedes-Benz EQE Sedan include Black/Space Grey, Neva Grey/Sable Brown, Neva Grey/Biscaya Blue, and Black/Sable Brown. Upgrading to leather will cost you $1,620, but if you choose AMG leather, you lose out on Neva Grey/Sable Brown. Nappa leather adds $2,990 to the bill and includes color schemes like Black/Space Grey, Sable Brown/Black, and Sable Brown Neva Grey. Since the 500 4Matic gets leather or AMG leather as standard, this upgrade only costs $1,370. The choice of cabin trim is the same for every model, with no-cost options comprising Natural Grain Brown Wood with Black print, Backlit Laser-cut Star Pattern, and Natural Grain Anthracite Linden Wood. For an extra $540, you can choose Anthracite 3D Relief-optic, or Natural Grain Yacth-design Brown Walnut Wood for $1,500.
Though Mercedes has not provided us with accurate figures for the trunk of the EQE, we were initially told that it would be able to store around 15 cubic feet of cargo, which is already more than the regular E-Class. The trunk space of the Mercedes-Benz EQE Sedan is supplemented by smaller storage spaces around the cabin. These include generous door pockets, a set of cupholders below the touchscreen, and a small compartment within the center armrest. In the back, there are another two cupholders within the fold-down armrest.
The EQE boasts an impressive consignment of features that only gets better as you move up the sub-trims, meaning that you don't have to go for the 350 4Matic or 500 4Matic to get the best on offer. The standard list includes a smartkey with keyless start, dual-zone climate control, heated 12-way front seats with memory, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Even more impressive is the safety suite, which comprises pre-safe with pre-safe sound, which act as forward collision avoidance, active brake assist, a surround-view camera, Parktronic with active parking assist, front and rear cross-traffic, blind-spot assist, and active lane-keep assist. The Exclusive and Pinnacle sub-trims add to this with pre-safe plus, pre-safe impulse side, and exit warning, among others, including a semi-autonomous driving system. You also get a head-up display and quad-zone climate control on the Pinnacle, along with energizing seats. Some additional features can be unlocked through over-the-air updates at a later date.
Even the standard infotainment system is comprehensive, consisting of a 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen programmed with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming HD Radio, SiriusXM, and navigation. This is all channeled through a 15-speaker Burmester surround sound system. This can be upgraded to the MBUX Hyperscreen, which transforms the dashboard into 2.6 square feet of touchscreens. Unfortunately, as fancy as this all sounds, it is also extremely complicated, and navigating the menus can take patience, even once you are familiar with the system. This can require taking your eyes off the road for longer than is necessarily safe.
While the manufacturer has not provided official figures as yet, it had stated at the reveal of the EQE that the sedan would provide at least 15 cubic feet of cargo space.
There are five seats in total, with the middle-rear seat also folding down to form an armrest.
Two cupholders are present in the front, hidden beneath a sliding panel, with another two in the back, also concealed within the fold-down armrest.
