The interior layout, fit and finish
All SQ5’s come with luxurious diamond-stitched Nappa leather seats, which only enhance what is already one of the best interiors in the business for out-and-out quality. There are textured, squishy plastics where you want them on the dashboard and doors, behind which everything feels solid. Even operating the precision buttons and switches imparts a sense of Teutonic excellence that Porsche and BMW can’t completely emulate.
The driving position is brimming with adjustability, from the reach and rake adjustable steering wheel, to the multi-way powered driver’s seat, which includes four-way electric lumbar adjustment. The relationship between the pedals, seat and steering wheel is very good, so you won’t suffer the offset driving position that blights the GLC.
