What does ‘family car’ mean to you?

Designed for the kids

It needs to have: Space for a pram

One of the first questions we get asked by many new families? “Will the pram fit in the boot?”.

We’ve had many new families ask us if their pram will fit in the boots of our cars. So we decided to look at the dimensions of some of the mothercare prams and the boot capacity on some of our cars to see if we could get them in.

Whether you already own a certain pram, or have one in mind – To make it as simple as possible for you, we we’ve compiled a list of some of the biggest prams on the market from popular manufacturers and put them up against our cars – specifically the cars with the smallest boot spaces within each model range to find out quite simply, “Will the pram fit?”.

Here’s what we came up with:

Pram

As you can see you won’t have to compromise style for practicality, and with the launch of the new stylish A-Class all the pram systems fit apart from Joie Muze Travel System. But you could take the parcel shelf out.

Designed for Pets:

It needs to have: Protection against dirt and damage.

Big or small – we can confirm that there is bound to be a Mercedes-Benz that will suit you and your canine companions. Muddy paws can be a nightmare, so it’s a good idea to have a look at the accessories that we have available to help protect your vehicle interior from the furry destruction.

Boot tub deep and shallow compartment floor – this is impact-resistant plastic to sit in the base of the boot and protect the fabric.

Concertina load sill protector – This is to protect the load sill of the car and can be used for loading roof boxes.

Reversible matHelps keep the original floor and load compartment clean.

Tub

Designed: The family shop:

It needs to: Keep everything organised and tidy

Avoid unwanted spills and runaway veg on the journey home after a food shop. These products will help keep the weekly shop under control (the storage, not the spending) and are also a great way to keep the boot looking neat and tidy every day.

Luggage net for the load sill, rear bench and floor – the net keeps objects from sliding around during the journey.

Golf

Designed for: The Golfing Family

It needs to have: Enough room for all of my equipment

Here at Mercedes-Benz we love a round of golf, and for many in the South West it is a popular past-time. With so many beautiful courses in the local area, you need a car that you can travel around in comfortably, knowing that space for all of your equipment is not going to be a problem.

It might be a tight squeeze in some of the cabriolets and you may have to put your clubs on the back seat but you can still travel in style knowing that your trolley is stowed away nicely in the boot.

If we haven’t listed above a pram or golf accessory of your choice, do speak with your Sales Executive who’d be happy to help ensure it fits in your chosen Mercedes-Benz.

  • Having bought an estate car to have the space for travelling abroad, I lose a large part of it because the new cars do not have a spare wheel. So as not to be stuck in the middle of France or Germany waiting to be rescued, I bought a spare wheel. Problem solved until packing for the next trip!! space I could better use is taken up by the spare wheel.
    Could the space that used to house the spare wheel be organised in such a way that a spare wheel could fit.

    A disappointment in my new C-class Estate.

    • Good morning George,
      Thank you very much for your feedback and we are sorry to hear of your disappointment regarding boot space in your new C-Class Estate. While we recognise this doesn’t apply to all drivers, current market research indicates that the reasons for not having a spare wheel (less weight to reduce admissions and more boot space) plus knowing that most customers still call breakdown companies even when they do have a spare wheel, means most manufacturers don’t supply a spare wheel in their cars.
      If you would like us to put you in contact with someone at the Truro branch to discuss your options with you, please contact us at info@mercedes-benzsouthwest.co.uk and I will make sure to pass your feedback on to our product team.
