- Driving assistance pack is optional on S500
- Adds lots of useful kit to keep you safe
- Base car boasts decent kit levels though
The S63 and S65 fare slightly better than the S500 here, gaining a pack of safety and driving assistance kit, which is optional on the S500 and well worth a look.
- Blind spot assist
- Active lane keeping assist
- Adaptive cruise control with lane keeping assistance
- Pre-Safe and Pre-Safe Plus – autonomous emergency braking plus pre-crash safety measures (belt tensioning, window closure etc)
All cars get a reversing camera though, plus Attention Assist, which keeps an eye on your fatigue levels. Antonymous emergency braking comes with all three cars too, plus a system to help reduce understeer in a corner.
- Lots of room for front passengers
- Not so spacious in the back
- Less bootspace that hardtop models
There’s plenty of space up front, but not so much in the back. Treated as a two seater, you’ll find plenty of room to stretch out but those in the back do a little worse.
That folding roof eats into bootspace to the tune of 50 litres, so you get 350 litres of space, enough to fit a decent load of shopping or a bag of golf clubs into.
More to the point, you’ll get enough luggage in there for a long weekend in the south of France, which is all that matters, really.
