As the first ever pickup from a premium manufacturer, the X-Class is uniquely versatile. It can be used as a rugged, all-terrain pickup, but also as a vehicle for urban lifestyles and families. The X-Class pushes the boundaries of the classic pickup – offering comfort, design, safety and connectivity in addition to an impressive load capacity of over 1,000kg and a towing capability of up to 3,500kg. Load up your tools, machines, work materials – or your sports and leisure equipment. The choice is yours.
This tough performance pickup delivers a driveability and handling that matches many demands – both with regards to driving dynamics and ride comfort. This is attained thanks to a comfort suspension with the fine tuning expected of a Mercedes-Benz. It consists of a ladder-type frame, rear multi-link solid axle, front independent wheel suspension and coil springs on both axles. By emphasising the surfaces and featuring stripped-down, extremely precise elements, the purist design draws attention to the basic virtues of a pickup in an emotionally appealing way – combined with almost unlimited functionality.
In the interior, the X-Class elevates comfort and quality feel to a new level within the segment for mid-size pickups. The instrument panel has the concave trim element typical of a Mercedes-Benz. It stretches across the entire width of the instrument panel – a novel feature in this vehicle segment. It creates an open feel and purist modernity. The control and display concept shows the familiar high levels of convenience and ergonomic comfort. The instrument cluster consists of the large, analogue round dials from the C-Class and V-Class. A 5.4-inch colour multimedia display is nestled between the round dials.
The X-Class is the first pickup to deliver both excellent off- and on-road performance. A special feature in this segment: Coil springs are used both at the front and the rear, which contributes to a harmonious suspension comfort. The comfort suspension is designed in such a way that it achieves a high level of driving dynamics and ride comfort on the road, while also delivering maximum off-road capability in conjunction with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. The elaborately designed comfort suspension consists of a double wishbone front axle and a rear multi-link solid axle that is ideal for transporting heavy loads and has good articulation capability.
The X-Class offers a choice of three equipment lines – PURE, PROGRESSIVE and POWER. Designed to deliver varying degrees of functionality, comfort and style, you can choose the one that suits your lifestyle and requirements best. In addition, there are several rear-of-vehicle options to consider, depending on how you’ll use the vehicle most. Add to this a wide range of Genuine Accessories to select from, and you’ll be able to stamp your individuality on the X-Class.
The POWER Line is the high-end design and equipment line. It is aimed at those for whom styling, performance and comfort are paramount. The POWER is a lifestyle vehicle beyond the mainstream - suitable for urban environments as well as for leisure activities off the beaten track.

Mountain bikes, bales of hay, chainsaws, whatever you want; the X-Class’s loading bed can easily handle dirty, wet or dusty objects up to a length of 1,587mm and weight of 1,092 kg. Between the wheel arches, the loading bed is wide enough for a transversely loaded Euro pallet.
Weather-resistant bedding provides effective protection against water damage over time and 4 cargo retention rails, attached to the bottom of the truck bed, allow for confident load securing.
The loading area is equipped with rails on 3 walls so you can secure cargo with straps – and keep everything where it should be.

The body-coloured hardcover not only looks great - but also provides reliable protection against weather, dust and theft. It is unlocked by a separate key and has an automatic LED light - so your cargo can be found quickly and easily, even in the dark.
The rollcover is made from robust, high-quality, aluminium that's built to last. It can be opened and closed in increments, and it can be quickly and easily fitted and removed when you're in a hurry.
The hardtop, finished in the vehicle's main colour, adds to the aesthetics of the X-Class and expands the load compartment to provide additional covered space. The tinted window provides the inside with extra light and protects the content from prying eyes.
The cargo area seperation system made from black anodised metal and plastic divides the truck bed into 2 seperate parts. It secures the cargo in place and can support safe transportation by stopping items from rolling around. The system is fully adjustable and is suitable for loads up to 100kg.
The roof rail which is made of high quality aluminium provides additional cargo capacity. Appropriate accessories - such as roof boxes or biycle carriers - can be added with ease.
