Exclusive Drive: Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Interiors & features


Steps Inside the car and the first thing which you notice are the stunning looking front seats. They are huge and are one of the best seats we have ever sat on. There is excellent all round support with proper bolstering. The thigh support too, is good despite the seats being positioned lower. The back of the front seats are Scooped, in order to liberate more space for the rear seats passengers.

With the amount of power the car has and the shattering performance on tap they are more useful than what the looks would suggest, you often end up hugging the front seats and these come in handy. The driver and passenger seat is electronically adjustable and come with memory function. The adjustments are housed on the doors in a typical Mercedes style. The door lock and unlock buttons are housed next to the seats adjustment on the driver’s door.

The rear seats are similar to the ones on the C-Class and offer good space and comfort. The rear gets sun blinds for the windows and the one for the rear windshield is electrically retractable via a button on the central console. There is a rear A/C vent to cool you and a rear centre armrest to keep you comfy. There are a couple of cup-holders housed in the centre armrest and also some space to store knick knacks.

Except for the small door pockets the Storage space is decent too. You get a medium sized glove-box and storage space between the front seats with a cooled box and couple of cup-holders. The Cooled box can be accessed with a touch of a button which tilts the front arm rests and the opens the box. The boot is sufficient for most needs and you will have no reason to complain even on weekend trips.

Everything from the seat colour to the trims and inserts on the dash and doors are customizable in the C63 AMG. One can choose different upholstery patterns as per ones liking, having said that the basic design is similar to the C-Class. There is a high resolution screen on the centre console which displays all the necessary information. The Instrumental cluster has three hooded binnacles. But the one in the in the centre is actually a screen. It looks stunning and the other dials too are easy to read.

The Multifunctional steering wheel is fantastic and does justice to the car. It is sporty looking and is great to hold. It also houses the buttons for the Audio and Cruise control. There is a foot operated handbrake which can be engaged by pressing the pedal and can be de-engaged by pulling the lever housed on the right side of the steering wheel below the air vents.

The Quality of the interiors is top notch. All the buttons, knobs and stalks are of very high quality, everything functions smoothly and the car scores high on operability. There is a solid feel to the car and it feels built to last. Ergonomic too are spot on and the car is easy to live with.
