This will certainly be the very first Travel luggage Examination of a front runner deluxe car, so do not anticipate much in the method of relative evaluation right here. Also my time invested in the Mercedes EQS was down in Los Angeles, implying I really did not have the normal Travel luggage Examination part to example from. I did load up the trunks of both Mercedes front runner cars, so you’ll finish up with a respectable concept of which one is much better at carrying things. Create, you understand, I make sure individuals were questioning.
The main specifications claims the brand-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class trunk steps 12.313 cubic-feet. That’s probably a translation from litres right into cubic-feet (we typically do not see a great deal of trunk quantities rounded to the thousandth), however that’s additionally an extremely reduced number for a large limo like an S-Class. In the deluxe car world, that’s hardly much better than the instead worthless Cadillac CT5, and also in fact even worse than many small cars. It can not perhaps be that a lot smaller sized than the trunk of a Hyundai Elantra Can it?
You can see there’s a fair bit of wheel well invasion and also a strange bulge on the left side behind the wheel that would likely hamper putting specific things … such as a heads of golf clubs. That looks like something that can turn up in an S-Class.
The contrary side is despite the remainder of the trunk flooring and also has the normal pop-up web offer. This bag is the automobile’s tire repair work package.
There’s some under-floor storage space, which is bit sufficient to perhaps place 2 six-packs of canisters. I assume that matters as a booze container ( TM James Riswick, 2021).
Right here’s one location where the EQS is far better. You have the ability to lug a whole lot a lot more in its a lot longer, bigger and also much deeper booze container. We’re speaking at the very least 12 containers of red wine as opposed to 12 canisters of beer. That’s visualized listed below. It additionally looks like something that could develop an S-Class.
Sadly, this is not the Liquor Examination. Onto the baggage.
As in every baggage examination I do, I utilize 2 midsize roller bags that would certainly require to be signed in at the airport terminal (26 inches long, 16 broad, 11 deep), 2 roll-aboard bags that simply hardly suit the expenses (24 L x 15 W x 10 D), and also one smaller sized roll-aboard that fits quickly (23 L x 15 W x 10 D). I additionally include my partner’s expensive carry-on simply to spruce points up a little bit (21 L x 12 W x 12 D).
So every little thing fit. Hardly, as you can see by the somewhat smooshed expensive bag. There’s a bit of area left over above the bags left wing and also because level little bit behind the ideal wheel, however not that far more.
So indeed, it does look like there’s even more in the Hyundai Elantra’s 14.8 cubic-foot trunk, and also presumably like those 12.313 cubic-feet approaches the dimensions of many various other cars. I discuss this since Mercedes has actually formerly marketed itself a little bit brief.
When It Comes To the EQS, right here’s what you’re collaborating with.
Besides having a greatly remarkable booze container, the EQS has an especially bigger freight location with less breaches and also clearly the huge hatchback opening. On the right is my tiniest roller bag plus the carry-on of Cars And Truck and also Motorist‘s editor-in-chief. I’ll make certain to ask Tony regarding its measurements the following time I see him (note: I most likely will not do this).
@autoblog Investing a week with the Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4Matic with the household in tow requires a complete examination of its safety seat- and also luggage-stuffing capacities.

I irritatingly really did not take images of the EQS trunk filled, so above is a TikTok that demonstrates how it did. That’ll simply need to do.
So the S-Class trunk does not have that swell hatchback, however there is this awesome little hook that falls from the parcel rack. Various other Mercedes cars have the very same point. There’s that.
Or Else, when it concerns freight ability, the EQS impacts the doors off the S-Class. Rear convenience certainly turns in the direction of the burner, however.
