It’s not a seven-seater. It doesn’t have a massive boot. It’s certainly not a serious off-roader. And yet the AMG version of the SUV version of the EQE is actually a highly competent and often very enjoyable car. It overcomes the considerable odds of excess weight and eye-watering price to offer power and torque aplenty, giving almost eerily accessible near-supercar performance, yet also a spine-friendly ride and a feature- laden cabin. And it feels built to last. Sure, the weight does ultimately limit the car’s dynamic agility on winding and hilly roads, and its efficiency is nothing to crow about. But if you’re thinking about a BMW iX M60 or Tesla Model X Plaid, make sure you think about this too.
