  • Well-made and luxurious
  • Sports seats and steering wheel
  • Comfortable despite rather extreme attitude

There’s nothing revolutionary going on in the cabin, but it is plush and built with the high-level of craftsmanship and detail that you would expect a Mercedes to have. The interior differs from a ‘normal’ C-Class with the addition of a chunkier steering wheel; deep, bolstered sports seats and a proper stability control button that you can find without having to scroll through the lengthy menu.

All-round visibility is good and kit like Active Blind Spot Assist is a sensible cost option as it makes switching lanes on motorways much safer. Entry and exiting to the rear seats can be little awkward thanks to sloping roof lines and the two-door coupe bodystyle.

The cabin’s well insulated from road, wind and tyre noise, but the experts at AMG have been clever in allowing the glorious pops and bangs of the 6.3-litre V8 engine infiltrate the cockpit. However, the soundtrack of the V8 is never over-bearing making longer journeys a pleasant experience.

How comfortable is a Mercedes C 63 AMG (2011-2015)?

This is a range topping car so Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG comfort levels are high. Up front, the seats are well bolstered and have good side supports giving a great amount of comfort for long journeys.

The front seats are not only adjustable for traditional fore/aft, seat back and seat height, they also feature adjustable side bolsters that can be moved in and out. Lower back support is also adjustable, though unusually for a Mercedes the control for this fine-tuning is not immediately apparent (it’s on the side of the seat back).

There’s good space in the rear for two adults but head room is limited, particularly in the Coupe where combined with the small windows, it can feel rather claustrophobic. The Estate is almost as comfortable as a conventional C-Class for rear passengers.
