Podcast: 2024 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV and Mazda CX-90 tested

As part of the show Car Guide up QUB-RadioAntoine Joubert and Germain Goyer commented on the recently tested 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV and 2024 Mazda CX-90.

For his part, Germain traveled to Portugal to drive Mercedes-Benz’s third electric SUV. The EQE SUV slides between the EQB and EQS SUV. He says he was very appreciative of the quality of the building’s materials and finishes.

On the other hand, he emphasizes the higher starting price than that of its rival, the Tesla Model Y. He also said he was disappointed by the proposed autonomy that exceeds 400 kilometers. Although the version with two electric motors is satisfactory in terms of acceleration, the version of The electric, which has only one electric motor, left him wanting more.

As for Antoine, he went to California to test drive the Mazda CX-90. A three-row mid-size SUV, it takes over from the CX-9. Mazda introduces plug-in technology, which isn’t good for a range of only 43 km. Among the new features, let’s highlight the addition of a 3.3-liter turbo six-cylinder engine whose performance is very impressive.

He says he appreciated the ride and his care despite his size. He said that the finish is good. That said, the infotainment system’s screen remains relatively touchy.
