Following the Mercedes-Benz X-Class world première in South Africa and the press test drive in Chile, Australian pricing and specifications have now been announced. The X-Class will initially be launched in April 2018 with thirteen variants boasting two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, delivering high power outputs and high torque at low engine speeds.
The X-Class will be offered in three grades to suit different lifestyles and work environments - PURE for classic robust use, PROGRESSIVE for higher quality and comfort requirements, and POWER as the high-end, urban variant.
The X-Class offers driving enjoyment which is on a par with passenger cars, combined with the power and ability of a utility. This is due to the wide track, long wheelbase and comfortable spring and damping tuning typical of a Mercedes-Benz – without resulting in compromises when off-road.
Like all Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the X-Class stands out for its exemplary level of safety. A comprehensive array of comfort and safety equipment come standard in the X-Class, which are exceptional in this vehicle segment. Given this extensive level of equipment, the X-Class perfectly fulfils the requirements placed on a modern family and lifestyle vehicle.
With the centrally positioned star, twin-louvre radiator grille, powerfully honed bonnet and headlamps extending far into the wings, the X-Class seamlessly fits into the Mercedes-Benz portfolio. Three trim parts for the cockpit, six seat covers including leather variants and two colours for the roof lining provide the widest choice of materials and colours in this vehicle segment. The X-Class's design draws attention to the basic virtues of a ute – robustness, strength and off-road capability – all in a visually appealing way.
As from its market launch, customers can add numerous style, cargo and off-road solutions – all developed and designed by Mercedes-Benz.
