Reading a first impression review from GTSpirit.com
, they said that the lower portion of the dashboard for the Mercedes X-Class reminds him a lot of a 1990s Subaru interior.
Apparently the switchear carried over from the Nissan and the shape of the gear selector. The hard plastic surround of the gear shifter isn't as expected from a Mercedes. Heated seat controls are out of place slightly.
Now as much as I don't agree that it looks like a 90's Subaru, I would agree that the interior doesn't look that of an MB for anything lower than the vents on the dashboard. BUT this is a pickup, so I didn't expect an S-Class interior by far.
