To bring it aesthetically closer to the rest of the EQ family, the compact crossover wears a solid black panel star pattern grille between the LED headlamps showcasing revised signature daytime lighting. A new flared front bumper accentuates the width of the vehicle and the taillamps have similarly had the inner elements remixed. In the cabin, users can control onboard functions via new steering wheel touch panels. Brown lime open-pore wood trim is now available.

The upgraded Mercedes-Benz User eXperience infotainment system is more intelligent capable of understanding natural speech, and the 10.25-inch standard virtual instrument cluster is customizable in three styles: subtle, sporty and classic. The optional Burmester surround sound stereo gains Dolby Atmos lending additional clarity and depth to music. A front-wheel drive EQB 250 is set to arrive in Q1 and an all-wheel drive model will follow later.

Interestingly, the Hyundai emblem provides the inspiration for the H-shaped headlights and square chin giving the vehicle a distinctive oncoming appearance. A high hood, sharp fenders wide tailgate and matching H-shaped tails helps tie everything together visually. Inside, there’s a 12.3-inch Panoramic Curved Display, UV-C sterilization tray and first-row Relaxation Seat with Leg Rest.

The former is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the latter, a six-speed automatic. Full specifications should be revealed during the Santa Fe’s debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
