THE PRESTIGIOUS WORKHORSE.
From concept to standard production, the new X-Class retains most of the highly acclaimed design from the Concept X-CLASS. Not only is the X-Class uniquely versatile in terms of usage – be it as a rugged pickup or an urban point-to-point vehicle for families. This is indeed what one can expect from Mercedes-Benz; a bona fide utility vehicle that reinterprets what a pickup vehicle should and can be.
QUALITY ALL AROUND.
When it comes to the interior, Mercedes-Benz spared no expense in ensuring that what the driver and passengers get is nothing but quality. Modern and stylish, the interior of the X-Class through the arrangement of the vehicle’s controls and display offer only the best in convenience and ergonomic comfort.
MIXING WORK WITH PLEASURE.
With the X-Class, it’s no long about having the ability to adapt to situations, but being adept at things. Imbued with the qualities of toughness and stylishness, the X-Class conjures up an emotionally appealing imagery of a regal and sinewy stallion that not only runs with the wind, it is also an able hauler of men and commodities.
IMPOSING ROAD PRESENCE.
With a front that clearly shouts of a Mercedes-Benz design language with the distinctive badge, headlights and front bumper; the X-Class is a rugged looking Mercedes-Benz that looks ready to be driven hard and yet at the same time doesn’t look out of place when parked outside the front of a posh hotel.
BEAUTY IN SYMMETRY.
The clean lines, simple angular design, and elegantly chamfered edges of the rear of the X-Class add to the appeal of the vehicle.
TOUGH EXTERIOR, COOL INTERIOR.
Once inside the X-Class, be enthralled by the comfort level that is expected of a Mercedes-Benz. With intuitively positioned dials and switches, state-of-the-art multimedia system, and comfortable highly adjustable seats, driving the X-Class is sheer bliss.
PASSENGER COMFORT GUARANTEED.
Being a double-cab means the rear passengers gets the same famed Mercedes-Benz brand of treatment when it comes to comfort. What the front gets, the rear receives as well – in this case a rear air con unit as well as a plush bench that seats three comfortably.
AT YOUR SERVICE.
The X-Class’s Multifunction Steering Wheel ensures that you’re in control. Offering a host of vehicle functions that can be controlled via your fingertips, this ensures that your hands remain on the wheel as you maintain your focus when driving.
Just like its siblings, Infotainment in the X-Class is taken care of on a large 8.4-inch screen, with navigation of apps such as Mercedes-Benz’s ‘COMAND Online’ handled by a rotary controller and touchpad.
COOLING IT OFF.
When it gets really hot outside, the X-Class’s dual-zone climate control known as THERMOTRONIC Automatic Climate Control helps keep you and your passengers cool, as they toggle their own temperature controls to set their own temperature zone.
EAGER TO PLEASE.
The X-Class is equipped with a seven speed 7G-TRONIC transmission. Gear shifting is extremely smooth, taking place at lightning speed.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT.
Like any other Mercedes-Benz model, the X-Class is equipped with numerous assistance and safety features, such as Lane Keeping Assist. Should the vehicle unintentionally leave its lane, the steering wheel will vibrate, warning the driver to exercise greater attention when driving.
PLOW YOUR WAY THROUGH.
The X-Class with its 4MATIC selectable all-wheel drive guarantees the best possible driving performance and traction on a wide variety of terrain.
Mated to the quick shifting 7G-TRONIC is a powerful fuel and efficient diesel engine with a two-stage turbocharger bolted to it. Though the vehicle only has a power rating of 187bhp, it’s the torque that counts when it comes to diesel engine – in this case, an impressive 450Nm worth of it.
LOAD EM' UP!
The highlight of the X-Class is in its tub and ability to carry loads in excess of 1,000 kg. So, feel free to load this ride to your heart’s content – tools, machinery, or sports equipment, the X-Class takes it all and well.
SAFE AND SECURED.
The rail system for cargo retention on the three walls of the tub allows for the flexibility in the securing of cargo (e.g. with the help of straps). The host of equipment includes four removable lashing eyelets with stainless steel rings, which can be attached to the rails when required should there be a need for lashing the cargo.
LIGHTING IT UP.
The LED high performance headlights of the X-Class help embellish the vehicle’s appearance in the day and provide excellent visibility at night. The LED technology generates a pleasant bright light that illuminates better than conventional halogen headlamps.
The X-Class comes equipped with 18-inch twin-spoke light alloys in Himalaya Grey coupled with Continental Tyres’ Premium Contact 6 tyres ensure a performance and comfort optimised ride.
REDEFINING ITS CLASS.
Keyless entry and push-button start in a pickup? That definitely sets the X-Class apart from any other vehicle in its genre. Now that makes this vehicle a notch above the rest in its class.
A TOUCH OF CLASS.
The touchpad controller of the X-Class includes a rotary knob and one-touch keys as well as a touchpad that offers intuitive access to the vehicle’s infotainment, navigation system and more.
AN ALL SEEING EYE.
With the 360-degree camera, everything surrounding the X-Class (e.g. obstacles below the window line) as well as the car itself is displayed on the vehicle’s multimedia system screen; this is a great tool for those who want to park with ease.
ADJUSTING FOR COMFORT.
The X-Class’s electrically adjustable front seats (eight- way adjustment) allow you to ride in comfort.
