Well, he does a lot of Mercedes infomercials, so I wouldn't necessarily trust him to be completely unbiased. How you fit in the back depends on your body shape. If you're all legs even if you're taller than 6 feet you'll fit. If you're all torso and head you won't fit regardless.
What I was glad when I first saw this video way back was that they did keep the AMG sound. It's obviously not a V8, but it still has that AMG growl.
