The leather and Alcantara-clad driver’s seat in the C 63 S Cabriolet is heated as standard and, because it’s motorised, automatically slides itself forwards and downwards when you fold the backrest out of the way in order to get access to the rear seats.
Like a great deal else about this car, it easily satisfies the particular requirements that are likely to be made of it as part of its service in a sporting four-seat convertible.
Entry to the car is via a long door that can be a bit cumbersome in tight parking spaces.
The act of getting into the back seats is much easier with the roof down than it is with it up, and once back seat passengers have successfully boarded they’ll only find sufficient space to get comfortable if they’re below average height.
But in every one of those ways, the Mercedes-AMG is entirely typical of its four-seat cabrio breed; a Rolls-Royce Dawn is a little easier to squeeze into with the roof up, but it’s not night-and-day different.
The car’s dashboard layout is common with that of the C 63 saloon, and so is the driving position. So the primary controls are well placed and the steering column is widely adjustable, while the conventional analogue white-on-black instruments are gently suggestive of enhanced performance and also very easy to read.
