The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

It's easy to find a comfortable driving position in the Mercedes C-Class because all models have plenty of adjustment in the seat and steering wheel. Lumbar adjustment is standard to make long-distance driving less taxing on your back. AMG line Premium models add full electric adjustment with memory settings.

There are not many physical buttons on the dashboard (much like in the Volvo S60), but at least the C-Class’s touch-sensitive climate controls are constantly displayed on the lower section of the infotainment display, rather than hidden in a menu. They’re not as easy to use as the physical controls in the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series though.

A reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors are fitted as standard to assist when parking, though, and this is upgraded to a 360-degree camera if you plump for mid-range AMG line Premium. 

LED headlights are provided as standard, with fancier adaptive units coming on AMG line Premium and upwards.

Sat nav and infotainment

The C-Class interior is dominated by digital displays. Along with the crisp 12.3in driver’s display, there’s a large portrait-oriented 11.9in central infotainment screen that can be operated by touch, voice or via the touch-sensitive controls on one of the steering wheel spokes.
