You guys get 48 hour test drive?! Wow lucky..
In the US you get like a 5-10 minute test drive and they come along with you and tell you where to go. Basically go in a circle and come back to the dealer.. it's useless

Well, depends where really. Places like Mercedes, BMW, etc should let you but not all will. It's getting better though I think.

The interior is very "plasticky" out-dated and cheap feeling for the price. Compare it to Audi and BMW for instance, they are just better quality.

Gone are the days were Mercedes etc were catered for only those who had deep pockets. They used to be for the executives and lets say "above average salary earner".

But with competition getting tough, they expanded bringing Merc to the masses in more affordable ways and this is the outcome. Maybe they are cutting costs in the wrong ways throwing in these plastics bits n bobs.

Hmm I just think they were lazy with the A-Class. Mercedes is no more premium than BMW or Audi in my opinion. The 2019 A-Class is a huge step up in comparison.

It isn't now. But it used to be. Much like years ago, you had limited choice for brands selling an SUV. Nowadays, even Porsche do them.
