Towing Package. 

Fitted pricing packages starting from $1,040 including GST. [1]

Take to the road with the boat or caravan in tow. The X-Class box-hitch class 4 towbar enables you to make the most of up to 3.5t towing capacity. Technology is integrated into the vehicle's on-board systems and the ball can be removed to reduce the length of the vehicle in non-towing environments. 

Increase your X-Class’’ carrying capacity by installing a Mercedes-Benz Genuine Towbar, Wiring Harness & Trailer Recognition Control Unit (ECU).

Advantages of the Genuine Mercedes-Benz Trailer Recognition Control Unit, which is always included in our towing package:

  • Provides an interface between the vehicle and the trailer.

  • Tailors the vehicle’s critical safety and electrical systems accordingly.

  • It recognises when a trailer is fitted.

If the Trailer Recognition Control Unit is not fitted in conjunction with the towbar, certain vehicle safety and electrical features may not function correctly.
