Since we are talking of the vehicle’s interiors, it is necessary to mention that how amazing and comfortable are its seats and interiors. As far as the front seats are concerned, they come well equipped with features and comforts that one must expect from a Mercedes. The second row is also extremely spacious for tall people. However, it might feel a little congested if three adults are to be seated simultaneously.
