Talking Cars (MP3)

Ratings and test results on every car CR purchases and tests:


The 2023 Mercedes EQE 350 SUV is the EV complement to the GLE, competing with the Tesla Model X, BMW iX, and Cadillac Lyriq, and the SUV version of the EQE sedan also in Consumer Reports's test program. We discuss how this model, built in Tuscaloosa, Ala., compares to the ultra-luxury EQS SUV, the incredible amount of safety features available on this model, and why even the pared-down infotainment screen (compared to the MBUX Hyperscreen) might still be a deal-breaker. Confused on what mpge means, and how it compares to miles per gallon in a gas-powered car? A viewer sends us a quiz in search of answers.
