The German SUV offers you for ways of accessing its most valuable asset - its cabin (the panoramic sunroof can also be used to access the car, but only if your resume includes positions at the circus).
Thanks to the increase in size, both the passengers and the luggage can now stretch all their extremities further - all the parts of the cabin are now more generous.
Mercedes has gone to great lengths to cover all that space with quality materials and, in the case of your test car, this meant an extensive leather finish that brought Mercedes' Designo finish to the seats, door panels and dashboard.
The brown shade of the leather was matched by the (actual) wood trimming, with this aspect, together with the fact that the first came in a quilted form, offered a luxurious feeling.
The designers also payed a lot of attention to the interior lighting, not only fitting the car with large windows and an optional panoramic sunroof, but also wist strips of light placed on the dashboard and doors that bring a cousy feeling at night.
However, we did find the seats a tad too firm, but this was not enough to bring any pain during a long ride, so we can't really complain. The ergonomics are well thought out, with the exception of the arm rests on the front doors, which are placed too low.
As for the rest of the elements, we can't ignore the buttons shared with multiple other models, albeit of excellent quality., but at the same time we have to admire the way in which Mercedes found a balance between a crowded layout and a minimalist but annoying one-button-controls-all pathway. Since we're here, we'll also mention that the optional COMMNAD infotainment system now uses a new display, which has migrated to the upper side of the dashboard.
The vast interior space is filled with quality materials and offers a commands layout that allows you to focus on the driving: this really helps in the urban areas
, where one needs all the assistance he can receive to tackle the heavy traffic.Continue reading
