The E 63 still does the entire executive saloon thing well, too. Well, it would, being based on a very fine executive saloon car. The only big difference is the beefier, seemingly bulkier fronts seats, but they in no way impede taller adults finding enough head and leg room in the front seats. In the back, sat behind tall front seat passengers, two larger adults won’t have acres of space, but there’s enough to get reasonably comfortable. Three abreast is a bit of a squeeze, though, except for kids.
There is plentiful oddments storage around: decent-sized door bins, cupholders in the centre console, along with another few storage cubbies and a phone mat.
Then you have a rather useful 540-litre boot capable of holding a couple of large suitcases or perhaps your golf clubs. It’s well shaped and has good access for a saloon, although if you want something with more space and a bigger opening, wait for the E 63 Estate model that will arrive late in 2017. For those that can’t wait that long, well, the saloon comes with 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats to maximise its load-lugging capability.
