Mercedes-Benz’s Luxury Pick-Up : Meet the X-Class

The first premium urban pick-up from Mercedes-Benz, the new X-Class has been attracting interest from gentlemen farmers, eager to get out into the country.

Long associated with saloon cars, SUVs or roadsters which marry luxury, sport and performance, the makers behind the famous star are at last entering the utility vehicles sector. Mercedes-Benz have unveiled their first pick-up, a machine destined for professionals as much as car-lovers looking for a robust leisure vehicle to wend their way through the urban environment.

Conceived as a 4x4, the X-Class has the advantage of a double cabin to fit all the family. The range will be offered with 3 levels of finish : Pure, Progressive or Power, according to the choice of bumper, rims, wing-mirrors, the air-conditioning and the interior finishing.

Transporting Trunks or Pulling a mini-Yacht

Let’s crunch numbers : this vehicle with 2 cabins and a keyless opening and starting system, Keyless Go, is 5,34 metres long and its 190 horsepower can transport 1 tonne of goods or pull a trailer of up to 3,5 tonnes. Available in early 2018, you’ll need to spend just 50 000 € to give this beautiful latest version of the Mercedes-Benz... to yourself !
