How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

You’re unlikely to grumble about space in the front, even if you tower over most of your friends and colleagues. The seats slide back a long way and there’s plenty of head room, although not quite as much as you'll have in the BMW 1 Series. It's also worth bearing in mind that the panoramic sunroof (standard on the Premium Plus Night Edition) reduces head room by about 6cm.

The door pockets are big enough for a couple of 500ml bottles of water and there are two suitably deep cupholders in front of the infotainment touchpad, as well as a decent glovebox and storage under the large centre armrest.

Seat folding and flexibility

All versions of the A-Class come with 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, which provides more flexibility than the 60/40 split seats you get with in the BMW 1 Series and cheaper versions of the Audi A3.
