Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
In the front, there’s exactly the same amount of space as there is in any ordinary 5 Series, meaning plenty of head and leg room, plus a generously wide interior.
There’s enough space for two tall adults in the rear, too, but carrying a third isn’t a comfortable experience on long journeys; shoulder room is tight and the middle occupant has to straddle a raised central tunnel. There’s actually more leg room in the Mercedes-AMG E63, although the margins are small, while the B5 beats it for head room by a whisker.
