In short: Remember the 56-inch MBUX Hyperscreen dash replacement that Mercedes-Benz showed off at last year’s CES? The automaker just revealed interior shots of the 2023 EQS SUV, which gives buyers the choice of that massive panel, and it looks pretty impressive.
The MBUX hyperscreen that was launched in the EQS sedan will be optional in electric SUVwhich will debut April 19th. It covers almost the entire front fascia and includes the instrument cluster, infotainment system and passenger display.
The screen may especially appeal to those sitting in the passenger seat, who have their own 12.3-inch OLED display and a control area that allows them to watch streaming content or TV while the car is in motion.
This may sound dangerous to easily distracted drivers, but the SUV has a neat trick to prevent eye wandering: if the interior camera detects the driver is looking at the front passenger display, it automatically dims the screen.
The MBUX Hyperscreen is equipped with an octa-core processor and 24GB of RAM, and the screen coating contains scratch-resistant aluminum silicate for durability. Behind the display are also a dozen actuators providing haptic feedback when needed, support for seven separate front passenger profiles, and personalized AI-based suggestions based on changes in environment and user behavior.
As for the rest of the interior of the 2023 EQS SUV, it uses leather and wood to create what Mercedes-Benz describes as a “living room” ambiance, as well as an air filtration system with a HEPA filter to remove fine particles, pollen and other contaminants. . The car also comes with an optional third row of seats and an electrically adjustable second row seating up to seven passengers.
