Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

There’s plenty of room for a six-foot driver up front in the Mercedes C-Class. The panoramic sunroof steals a little head room, and anyone taller than six feet might need to drop the seat on to its lowest position if they have that roof fitted.

There are lots of storage areas to hide your belongings, including sizeable door bins and a compartment in the centre armrest.

Front passenger seat height adjustment is standard, as is four-way adjustable lumbar support.

Boot space

You get more total boot space in the C-Class than the Jaguar XE and it's a match for the Audi A4 but there’s more in both the BMW 3 Series and the Tesla Model 3 (which has a front boot).

As with most saloon cars, the C-Class has a narrow boot opening that makes it difficult to load it with bulky items. If you want an executive car that gets around that, have a look at the Skoda Superb and Volkswagen Arteon, both of which have a handy hatchback tailgate with a much wider entrance. They also have far more luggage capacity, although you’ll still be able to get a set of golf clubs or a few carry-on suitcases in the back of the C-Class.
