Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Drivers of all sizes will be able to get comfortable, because every S-Class Cabriolet gives you a huge range of fully-electric seat and steering wheel adjustments, while its front seats are decently supportive in fast bends – but also supremely comfortable on long journeys. To make life even more relaxing, both front pews offer massage and memory functions and are, of course, heated, but so too are the central and door-mounted armrests. Combined with the Airscarf, you really can take pleasure in roof-down driving, no matter how cold the weather.

The S-Class Cabriolet is every bit as luxurious as its four-door limousine and two-door Coupé cousins in other regards, too. There are swathes of fine leather on its dash, doors and seats, while its metallic switches and infotainment controller have a suitably high-end look and feel. Should you want even more sumptuous surroundings, there’s an extended leather package that swaddles even more of the interior in hide. Just bear in mind that the Bentley Continental feels even more luxurious – as you’d expect for the extra it’ll cost.

Mercedes' Comand Online infotainment system with 12.3in colour screen remains visually impressive and logical, if not quite as simple to navigate as BMW's iDrive. That’s largely because the touch pads you use to control it aren’t as easy to operate as BMW’s rotary dial controller. However, you do get used to them, and eventually appreciate how you can operate the central screen and driver’s instruments without taking your hands off the wheel. Alternatively,  you can treat the central display as a regular touch screen if you prefer.
