Luxury and opulence in abundance, a cabin space to overwhelm and delight! Trimmed in beautiful factory optional Orion Grey Leather (code 218), the upholstery is clean and free from evidence of misuse. The seats have retained all shape and firm composition with only the driver’s seat outer bolster displaying light hairline veins to the leather. All burr walnut cappings and other leather trim sections are pristine and unique to the high specification Elegance model. The functions and controls operate as they should, although the LCD display for the clock and outside temperature has leaked. This ergonomically exceptional interior offers impeccable comfort to all occupants with Mercedes-Benz build quality assured.
