Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Highup driving position and large glass area is great for forward and side visibility, but the rear view is restricted by large headrests. The seats are not comfortable for longer journeys, as they lack lower back support. Dash is clearly and logically laid out, although there are a lot of buttons and the radio can be a bit fiddly.

Lots of legroom for all passengers, engines are particularly noisy by Mercedes' standards especially the 1.7 diesel, although road and wind noise are kept low. Some of the interior feels a little cheap with lowgrade plastics and the seats could be more supportive.
