2024 Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 SUV X294

It’s not a seven-seater. It doesn’t have a massive boot. It’s certainly not a serious off-roader.

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.

It turns out there is a lot more than many of us think.
