Like the regular petrol-powered Mercedes-Benz GLB, the EQB is also equipped to sit seven. In fact, the cabin largely mirrors that of the GLB, with the only separation being accent colours on the air-conditioning vents, seats, and carpets.

Mercedes-Benz has also done extensive measures to reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH). Engineers have fitted a foam mat around the electric motors to reduce drivetrain noise, while acoustic foams are inserted into many carriers during body-in-white construction.
