Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

With extensive seat adjustment most drivers won't take long to find their ideal seating position, while the dashboard is clearly arranged and nicely finished. There are few manufacturers in this bracket that offer the same kudos and image, and this has all the neat touches expected from a Mercedes.

There are four trim levels available in total, each possessing their own unique character. The main difference between the two more prominent trim editions is that Avantgarde has a more contemporary interior, while Elegance is softer and more graceful. The Final Edition model boasts a greater level of equipment, whereas Sport is firmer and refined. Legroom in the rear is a little cramped – especially when sitting behind a taller driver - although the seats are comfy and supportive throughout the vehicle.
