What Mercedes has to offer is luxury, powerful engines and a thrilling driving experience. This Mercedes offers plenty of features. To top it off, both rows of seats provide plenty of space and support, regardless of body style.

The dash’s two huge instrument and display screens are all clarity and logic. They’ve been updated and now more closely resemble what you get in the new E-Class, which is fine by us.

Mercedes is one of the few manufacturers that hasn’t gone doolally for touchscreens, and good as the A8’s twin-screen setup is, it’s still not as intuitive as having a dedicated, physical control.

Said screens are set in beautifully worked leather, wood and metal, and most ergonomics are just-so. Those familiar with Mercedes will notice the new steering wheel, with its touchpads and cruise control, erm, controls. It’s a bit button-heavy, but you get used to it.
