How’s this for a luxury car head-to-head video!

We’ve got our hands on one of the most luxurious electric cars you can buy in 2021, the Mercedes EQS, and it's going up against one of the most luxurious petrol cars you can buy - the Mercedes S-Class!

The question is, if you’re in the market for a luxurious car, which should you choose? Well starting with the EQS, we’ve got our hands on the entry-level model. As a result, it comes with a single electric motor that drives the rear wheels. Once you get going, it can deliver 330hp & 570Nm of torque. It’s super-heavy though, tipping the scales at 2,480kg!

Then we come to the new S-Class. Powered by a 3-litre straight-six turbo petrol engine under the bonnet, it can put down 435hp and 520Nm of torque. Unlike EQS, however, it comes with all-wheel drive! Not only that, it’s a whole lot lighter, weighing in at 2,065kg.

So the S-Class is clearly ahead in the performance stakes, but how about everything else? Well to find out what we made of the looks, interiors, brakes and everything else in-between, you'll need to stick with Mat for this all-new group test!

Mercedes S-Class...because I don´t really like that egg-shape. When I see that S-Class it gives a feeling of luxury. When I see the EQS it reminds me of a newer model of a Ford Mondeo. What I miss especially on the exterior is the design of the front lights. The ILS has such a great detailed design. Those multi beam LEDs look kind of boring in comparison.

If everything was equal then the EQS is the no-brainer choice. But both are still stupidly expensive vehicles.

I think you completely missed the point of these cars. You are always keen on 0-60, 1/4-mile and so on. Noone in the customer group of these cars care about that. They want to be transported smooth and gentle, being able to type on their laptops, while being transported. Their chauffeur would never go 80 mph down a twisty B-road. He would get fired within the week. Try to test cars for what they are built for. If you only want speed and horsepower, then only test cars like Lambo, Ferrari and so.

Really like the S-class but i like the screen's on the EQS. But when i did the configuration, the V8 S-class had 100K€ of emission taxes. Literally would you like to pay 100K€ taxes for a 200K€ car. The EQS was 200K€ also but it had 5000€ tax.

I'm thinking that they made the EQS a hatchback in anticipation of the all electric Jag XJ which will likely be a hatchback too.

Pause at 00:10 It's a Civic on one side, S-Class on the other. A strongly-raked, stubby hood... from Mercedes? (in truth, the hood area - from the front shut line - is actually long; only, the extra-extended A-pillar eats into it) Let's hope that Porsche (Taycan) and Audi (e-Tron GT) succeed as they stay true to their design style, and the pressure forces Mercedes to reconsider this misguided design philosophy of the EQ line. Regardless of what Gorden Wagener says, traditional design can and does work with battery technology (again: Taycan, e-Tron GT). EVs don't need to "look like EVs"; they are cars, they should just look like cars.

I’m definitely going electric for my next car. I don’t think it will be the EQS though. It just doesn’t look special enough on the outside! That inside is next level though. FYI, the Tesla exterior isn’t special either! I’ll wait and see what the Merc SUV’s do.

1:40 here we can see the EQS staying within the S class's circle, obviously winning the rate fight. Perhaps the S-class can do better in instantaneous turn?

Cockpit in Mercedes EQS is prettier, more elegant and more styled than cockpit in S. Cockpit in S class is simpler one and consists of two ugly tablets. It seems to me that Mercedes designers made a mistake and they have should replaced their cockpits in order to fit to purpose and character of these cars.

You need to try the S580 e and compare it to the EQS. Same thing you need to try the AMG Version of both the AMG EQS 53s and the petrol version so we can have a better in-depth view of both vehicles.

The EQS reminds me the weird Cadillac ELR. But now it's like every sci fi movies an i could actually like that design could be turn revese or forward. Symmetrical from the top. It's made it futuristic.

S-class looks way better. Don't understand why eqs looks like old passat from the front. When you are so rich to buy either one, you really don't have to care how much it uses fuel or how expensive fuel is so S-class is better choice. Eqs can't compete against Taycan or Model s plaid.

Long wheel base. Hmm. Snooze on both of these vehicles. You can turn off the other Screens in the EQS and the noise when it park, is to alert a human, that they are pressing on the accelerator. EQS is ugly as sin on the outside and beautiful as a princess (fictional one) on the inside. Tack on screens are a step back. Let's strap old looking iPads on an expensive car. AMG design is decent. Way more expensive and is an EV deserving of an AMG badge? Hmm

The eqs is a complete disaster. Why would you buy a 2,5 ton electric barge with a full reflective eye-destroying dash and the width of o truck...I really don t know. Add to that the interior that looks like a cheap strip club at night. Maybe this is the Mercedes way to be sustainable and save the planet.

The EQS is supposedly the most aerodynamic car on the market with a coefficient of drag of 0.20! The driver's eye is monitored by a camera and if it senses that you're distracted it will turn off the 3rd screen. The wheels have these little Merc logos on them. The AWD version is much faster. There's a mood mode that like the S class uses scent pods and has a zen mode that uses the ambient lighting to provide a...well...spa mode especially with the massage seats. I would've thought that Merc would've used cameras and radar instead of exterior rearview mirrors. I love the fact that you can get massage seats for all 3 passengers. The boot or trunk is a hatch and the rear seats fold down completely. You can take all 3 of your friends along for a ride and spend 1/2 hour talking about all the gadgets! in the EQS the dial or gauge isn't showing RPM, it shows energy being used. The design of the EQS reminds me of the early 2000's Chrysler Concord...LOL! The AWD EQS with the software update has the same 3D effect gauge cluster as the S Class now. They both have hepa filters that actually filter out every air impurity and ....smell..from outside.
