Without question, the front is the place to be when travelling in the A-Class. The front seats have integrated headrests, are nicely supportive, and adjust for height. Head room is on a par with the best in the class, and the seats slide back far enough to accommodate even the tallest drivers.
The door pockets are a decent size, but aren’t as large as those in, for example, a Volkswagen Golf, which also has a classy flock lining in its storage cubbies. The armrest has enough space for several loose items, and the glovebox is big enough to swallow most loose things.
Shoulder room isn’t great, though, which means the A-Class feels quite narrow compared with other cars in the class. Access to the front is easy enough, though, via wide-hinged doors that open generously.
There’s an optional storage pack that includes luggage nets in the front seat backs, storage drawers under the two front seats, a sunglasses holder up front and an extra 12V charging socket in the boot.
