You don’t always expect a hard-working and powerful pick-up
to ooze class and professionalism but that’s exactly what the Mercedes X-Class
does. In a league of its own, it comes at more of a premium than its
competitors. That’s because you have a premium style and a luxury cabin which
is unique for a pick-up.
While Mercedes has gone all out with the X-Class, but it
doesn’t slack when it comes to getting down to the nitty-gritty. Its almost
square load area can handle a payload of over a tonne while it has the towing
capabilities to shift up to 3,500kg. But, if parking is your kryptonite, it may
be best to avoid the X-Class as it is very big.
Only the one double cab body style is offered for the
Mercedes X-Class. But there are three options when it comes to the model – the
X220, the X250 and the X350.
- X220D – 2.3L diesel with 163bhp and 6-speed
- X250D – 2.3L diesel with 190bhp and 7-speed
- X350D – 3L twin-turbo V6 diesel with 258bhp 7G
TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission
The meaty V6 engine for the X-Class comes with a permanent
4WD system whereas you can choose between two or four wheel drive with the X220
There are more affordable pick-up options with Swiss Vans
with the Nissan
Navara being a more basic version of the X-Class. Other options
include the Ford
Ranger and VW
You have a choice between two trims with the X-Class – the PROGRESSIVE and the POWER. There is also a limited edition specification called the ELEMENT.
The PROGRESSIVE is the more basic spec but still has a sleek image and high levels of equipment. Comes only as the X220 or X250.
- Air conditioning
- Reversing camera
- Audio 20 infotainment system with 7” HD screen
