How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Mercedes S-Class is a big, wide car, so space up front is, unsurprisingly, plentiful. There’s lots of leg, shoulder and head room for two large adults, even with a panoramic glass roof fitted.

The wide, deeply padded front centre armrest has plenty of storage underneath. The armrests, including those on the doors, are heated in the top two trims. You’ll also find a couple of generously proportioned cupholders for the largest takeaway coffees, plus big door bins.

If you opt for the most expensive AMG Line Premium Plus Executive, you'll get an electrically extendable footrest that pops out from beneath the front passenger seat, plus sun blinds on all the rear windows.

Seat folding and flexibility

The good news is that the S-Class's front passenger gets the exact same range of seat adjustments as the driver, including lumbar adjustment. The passenger also gets hot stone massaging if you order the AMG Line Premium Plus trim.

The bad news is that you can’t fold down the rear seats, but there is a ski hatch for your… well, you know. If you want luxury with more versatility, we'd suggest looking at the Land Rover Range Rover.
