yes, I agree! Unless you are a fanatical fanboy who is orgasmic at the mere thought of the car, you should not post any opinions about the car you spent $90k on.Gods, people. Just drive the damned car! It's a pleasure to drive, an absolute thrill. Luxurious and fast with good handling. I mean, isn't that what a car is for?
Yeah, I'm 6'1" with a tall torso. The first thing that surprised me was the amount of helmet clearance in the car. It doesn't look very tall when you stand next to it. I barely fit in most sport cars without leaning the seat back at an uncomfortable angle. So my ergo is going to be different.That's not really the point McRat, the point is that this is just the most BASIC Mercedes and look how nice the system looks. Once you get to one that matches the price of the IPace it will most likely have a ton more.
The driving dynamics of the IPace are pretty special. I really do enjoy driving it. In dynamic it will rip your face off in the corners. I'm taking clover on-ramps at similar speeds to my 911 Turbo. I'm just continuously frustrated by the infotainment system. I guess the best way to describe it is similar to the Aston Martin Mercedes Benz partnership. Aston Martin has a contract to receive the last gen of MB infotainment systems to put in their cars. In other words, every time MB comes out with a new system, Aston Martin gets the right to use the old system.
Our infotainment system feels like the last gen system and not the most current system. It's just not that polished.
As for ergonomics - I'm on the short side at 5'4. The touch screen is always a bit far for me unless I sit super close to the steering wheel at which point when I look up I see headliner and not the glass roof. To sit a bit farther back, the steering wheel doesn't really move far enough back. This is another argument toward electric tilt as it can be hard to find a decent spot and then have to basically use my foot to push the lock button in to keep it.
Keep in mind this is my first personal car with a touch screen. My wife's Volvo is all touch but the screen is in a much better position - more into the cabin and easier to reach.
