Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

The interior of the GT looks almost as dramatic as the outside, thanks to a bulbous and centre console that fences the driver off from the passenger.

On that console, you’ll find a myriad of buttons and switches to change the character of the car; among other things, you can adjust the responsiveness of the accelerator, the speed of gearshifts and the loudness of the exhaust.

Fortunately, it’s not as complicated as it looks at first glance, and the infotainment system is standard Mercedes fare. That means most major functions are easy enough to use, although the interface isn't as intuitive as the BMW i8 or Audi R8's.

In the hardcore GT R you also get a curious yellow knob just above the air-con controls. Twist this and you can vary the interference from the stability control system. At one extreme, the car will immediately step in to help if you’re a bit enthusiastic with your right foot; at the other, you’ll have to rely solely on your driving skills. The latter setting is intended solely for track use.

There’s also lots of seat and steering wheel adjustment to help drivers of different sizes get comfortable, and the seats themselves are supportive. Rear visibility isn’t actually too bad, but the long bonnet – the end of which you can’t really see – means you’ll need to rely on the standard front parking sensors.

Oddly, the gear selector is positioned closer to your elbow than your hand, making it a pain to switch back and forth between drive and reverse - as you sometimes have to when parking.
