"The best quality interior in a UK market pickup truck by some margin"
"Mercedes' truck offers a level of desirability that rivals can't match... This is the best quality interior in a UK market pickup truck by some margin but it falls below premium passenger car standards... The steering weight is well judged and there's none of the vagueness some trucks suffer from... The Mercedes X-Class is one of the most practical double-cab trucks on the market with a three-seat rear bench that can accommodate two 6' passengers behind front seat occupants of the same stature."

"The closest pickup yet to blend working abilities with car-like comfort"
"The lifestyle pickup segment is closing the gap on the SUV market and the X-Class is the vehicle setting the standard".
"The entry-level X-Class Pure trim is a stripped-down, minimalist work model – although better equipped than the equivalents at Ford, Nissan and Toyota. The X-Class's interior is smarter than the more utilitarian Amarok... The X-Class is the closest pickup yet to blend working abilities with car-like comfort."

"It drives like a Mercedes… Massively impressive."
"Mercedes-Benz has gone to town – changing springs, dampers, bushes and geometry to achieve a much better ride/handling balance than anything else in the pick-up sector."
"Adding a wider track and reinforcing the ladder frame chassis also makes a substantial contribution to this – it most definitely does not drive like a Nissan. It drives like a Mercedes. What's the new X-Class like to drive? Massively impressive – for a pick-up."

"The best pickup for ride quality I’ve driven in a while"
"It's genuinely quiet, and it rides very well for a pickup truck. The X-Class copes admirably with no ride-settling load, and actually rides as well as some SUVs. This is good. No, it's not a magic carpet, and you'll still get some chassis-shudder and bobble on wonky potholes and expansion joints, but it's the best pickup for ride quality I've driven in a while - helped in part by being extremely quiet. Yep, you'll notice this is one solidly soundproofed effort."

Parking package with 360° camera and PARKTRONIC
The optional Parking package comprehensively assists you when parking and manoeuvring thanks to its camera image with 360° view and PARKTRONIC.

- Robust, easy to clean loading bed

Lane Keeping Assist
This function helps prevent accidents caused by unintentionally leaving the lane the vehicle is travelling in. A camera on the inside of the windscreen registers lane markings, while the system monitors the driver’s actions in order to determine whether a lane change is intentional or not. If the system indicates a drift, steering wheel vibrations and visual signals warn the driver.
Traffic Sign Assist
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 instrument cluster multifunction display – and in the navigation mode on the media display.
Active Brake Assist
Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, and reduce the risk of a 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.
Tyre pressure monitoring
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
Adapative 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 manoeuvre, or the activation of ESP or ABS. This provides a vital warning and can help shorten a driver’s reaction time. If the vehicles is brought to a complete standstill from a speed greater than 40 mph, the hazard warning lamps are automatically activated to further assist in preventing a collision.
Electronic Stability Programme with Trailer stability Assist
The X-Class’s Electronic Stability Programme is an innovative handling dynamics control system that takes the vehicle load into account. In critical situations, 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 targeted 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.
Airbags and restraint systems
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 and 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.
Your life, your X-Class
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 really be able to stamp your individuality on the X-Class.View pricelist
