What is it like on the inside?

Lovely. The driver (let’s call him CAPTAIN because it sounds better) is treated to the full Benz experience, with a floating 7in display, an intuitive layout and all functions close to hand. It really does feel like a jacked-up S-Class (a bit). The front passenger gets a similar treatment, and there’s space for six more humans in the back, if you wish.

The seats themselves can be rearranged into whatever form you wish, though a word of warning: when changing the config, be prepared to lift. Though the rail system is in theory simple to change the layout, the seats are quite heavy, and if the rail indents (where you lock in the seats) are not aligned, you will spend a painfully sweaty amount of time trying to lock them into place with no luck.

Once aligned however, it really is a doddle. Line up the seat, lock it in, sit down. Enjoy.

The front seats are heated, there’s three-zone climate control up front and in the back, lots of leather, carbon-look trim (on our AMG Line test car), ambient lighting, and a cracking (and £675 optional) Burmester surround system.

Other standard things on the AMG Line include tinted rear windows, hill start assist, cruise control, collision prevention assist, and attention assist. Many assists.
