Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off the refreshed 2024 EQB, its compact electric SUV. The updates are subtle but bring the EQB in line with Mercedes’ evolving EV styling.
Visually, changes are minor but include a new front grille with illuminated star pattern, reshaped LED headlights, and a redesigned front bumper. Out back, the taillights now feature parallel lines instead of rectangular lighting elements.
Inside, Mercedes equips the 2024 EQB with a new steering wheel, features a 10.25-inch central touchscreen, upgraded infotainment software, and new “sound experiences” that generate fake driving noises if owners spring for the Burmester audio system, active noise cancellation remains standard.
Technically, the 2024 EQB appears unchanged. The electric crossover continues to offer two powertrains: the EQB 300 with 225 horsepower and the EQB 350 with 288 hp. Range remains at 240-260 miles depending on configuration.
Mercedes also notes upgraded driver-assistance systems thanks to new camera and radar sensors. Additional software updates will bring more enhancements over the air.
Pricing on the refreshed 2024 EQB will be announced closer to its on-sale date in the first half of 2023. But expect a slight bump over the 2023 model’s $55,000-$60,000 MSRP.
The tweaked EQB brings Mercedes’ EV lineup into closer aesthetic alignment. As the brand ramps up electric vehicle efforts, giving its models a cohesive and modern look is key to attracting buyers.
