Hofele Design Subtly Tweaks The Mercedes-Benz EQC

Shortly after Brabus unveiled its subtle take on the Mercedes-Benz EQC, fellow German tuning house Hofele Design has premiered its version of the electric SUV it originally planned to reveal at the Geneva Motor Show.

Hofele Design’s Mercedes-Benz EQC starts off with the available AMG-Line bodykit and includes a bespoke front grille finished in black and complete with vertical slats, as opposed to the horizontal slats of the standard EQC.

Additionally, the tuner has fitted contrasting gloss black trim pieces to the lower portion of the front bumper. Elsewhere, the electric SUV now includes a gloss black rear diffuser and a set of turbine-inspired aftermarket wheels which, to our eyes at least, suit the character of the EQC very nicely.

Inside, Hofele Design has adorned much of the cabin with red leather complete with a diamond-shaped design across the seats and door panels. There are also new black leather parts found throughout, as well as some additional Alcantara. Black piping also decorates the edges of the seats while parts of the dashboard sport red contrast stitching.

All in all, the modified EQC looks quite nice and equally subtle as the design Brabus recently unveiled. Of course, should EQC owners want slightly more exaggerated looks, we’re sure Hofele is happy to accommodate requests for bespoke parts, particularly unique interior trimmings.

Unlike Brabus, Hofele Design did not mention any powertrain updates. Details remain scarce on pricing and availability too.
