The cabin of the autonomous concept will be influenced by a design the brand previewed in November, with flexible seating that allows the front passengers to turn their seats backwards, hence facing the rear passengers. Being a concept, expect Merc to trim the cabin with premium materials, upholstered in the finest leather, feature wooden flooring, and equipped with a futuristic dashboard sporting a full length infotainment system.
