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.
Power and efficiency. Our choice of high-torque 4-cylinder common-rail diesel engines impress with their superior performance characteristics and low fuel consumption.
Delivers smooth, precise gear shifts and an engaging drive. The X-Class with manual transmission also impresses with its accurate clutch for good control on and off road.
Facilitates comfortable and quick gear changes, offering high levels of driving comfort. The 7-speed automatic transmission also features a manual shift mode, for dynamic and high levels of control off-road.
The X-Class offers three driving modes, including rear-wheel drive, 4MATIC and 4MATIC low range. The standard Downhill Speed Regulator helps you to master downhill gradients with full control and safety.
The 7G-TRONIC PLUS is available exclusively with the X 350d V6 4MATIC engine, offering fast and barely-noticable gear changes, along with excellent comfort and high levels of efficiency. With a total of 7 gears, engine speed remains as low as possible in any driving situation, and the wide gear range reduces the difference in revs when shifting gears.
DYNAMIC SELECT also provides drivers with 5 different driving modes (Comfort, Eco, Sport, Offroad and Manual) to adapt the character of the drivetrain to suit the demands of the road.
The X-Class offers a choice of two equipment lines – 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. Suitable for urban environments as well as for leisure activities off the beaten track. Through its design and high level of equipment it reflects an independent and individualistic lifestyle.
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 canopy, 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.
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 tailgate can be folded down completely for full and convenient access to the rear (available only with the PURE line).
Active Lane Keeping Assist* not only warns the driver when they unintentionally leave their lane, but also uses one-sided braking intervention (via ESP) to help manouvre the vehicle back to its lane. Using radar sensors located all over the vehicle, which also monitor traffic around the X-Class, the technology steps in to correct the driver and keep them safe.
Traffic Sign Assist utilises a camera situated on the windscreen to recognise traffic signs and displays them, along with the current speed limit, on the intrument cluster multifunction display - and in the navigation mode on the media display.
Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, and reduce the risk of rear-end collision, thanks to Active Brake Assist. The system warns of potential danger, and in the event of emergency braking, you will also be supported by the adaptive brake assistant.
The standard tyre pressure monitoring system informs you when there is insufficient tyre pressure, allowing you to take action before setting off.
Adaptive Brake Lights ensure that vehicles behind you are fully aware if you are emergency braking. All three brake lamps will start flashing in the event of a critical braking manoeuvr, or the activation of ESP or ABS. This provides a vital warning and can help shorten a driver's reaction time. If the vehicle is brought to a complete standstill from a speed greater than 40mph, the hazard warning lamps are automatically activated to further assist in preventing a collision.
ESP is an innovative handling dynamics control system that takes the vehicle load into account. In critical conditions, for instance when there is an imminent risk of skidding, it can help stabilise the vehicle by applying brakes to individual wheels and adjusting the engine's torque.
Trailer Stability Assist also offers dynamic stability when carrying a load or towing a trailer. If weaving is detected it can be limited through the targted braking of vehicle wheels. This stability programme also includes the ABS Anti-Lock Braking System, ASR acceleration slip regulations, BAS Brake Assist, EBD Brakeforce Distribution and Hill Start Assist.
The X-Class is comprehensively equipped with 7 airbags and further restraint systems that offer the best possible protection in the event of an accident. The systems can - depending on the type of severity of the collision - significantly reduce the risk of serious injuries. The automatic child seat recognition feature, automatically switches off the front-passenger airbag if the front passenger seat is unoccupied or a child seat is recognised.
“We use it for everything! Whether we’re going out to an upmarket restaurant on a Saturday night or driving across muddy fields with two horses in tow, the X-Class never looks or feels out of place. Having been used to 4x4s, I’m amazed at how much stuff we can fit into the load area – it really is cavernous.
We love the all-round cameras for parking and manoeuvring, and the sat nav is brilliant! It has diverted us from several traffic jams very successfully more than once, saving us time and hassle."
