The new X-Class will be available from just under £30,000.
Mercedes has announced pricing for its first ever production pickup, the X-Class.
The X is actually a collaboration with Japanese manufacturer Nissan, and is based on that firm's Navara pickup. It is available to order from £27,310 plus VAT, with deliveries starting in January – unless you're particularly keen and willing to pay a 'reservation fee' to secure one of the first examples to come to the UK in November or December.
Three trim levels will be available from launch: Pure, Progressive, and Power. Two diesel engines will be available for the X-Class – the 220d and the 250d. The Pure will come exclusively with the 220d while the Power will only be available with the 250d. The mid-range Progressive will be available with a choice of both engines.
A V6-powered X350d 4matic version of the truck is set to arrive in the middle of 2018.
The entry-level Pure only be available with a six-speed manual transmission, as well as a rear bumper with integrated step, halogen headlights and a matt black radiator grille and 17-inch steel wheels as standard.
Adding £1,200 will get you the Progressive model, which swaps the steel wheels for 17-inch silver alloys, and adds painted bumpers with a simulated under guard in matt black; aluminium door sills featuring ‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering, chrome door handles, load securing rail system, heated exterior mirrors, and a radiator grille with iridium silver matt finish.
The top-of-the-range Power will cost a further £3500 on from the Progressive, and adds a whole host of gadgets as standard including LED high-performance headlights with cleaning system, LED tail lights, electrically folding exterior mirrors, keyless go and eight-way electrically adjustable driver and front passenger seats. It also adds fog lights with chrome surround; and shoulder line trim strips in chrome.
On top of the three main trim levels, Mercedes is also offering a number of option packs for the X-Class.
The Style Package for the Power model line, includes privacy glass, electric rear windows, running boards, roof rails, and 19-inch six twin-spoke light alloy wheels; while it adds high-performance LED headlights and daytime running lights, LED tail lights, privacy glass; running boards, roof rails, and 18-inch six twin-spoke light alloy wheels to the Progressive trim.
The Progressive model can also be specified with a Comfort Package that features eight-way electrically adjustable driver and front passeger seat with lumbar adjustment, Thermotronic automatic climate control; Artico leather with Dinamica microfiber upholstery; and a storage net for the passenger footwell.
The Parking Package, which is only available on the Progressive and Power models, includes Parktronic parking sensors and a 360˚ camera. The parking sensors can also be added to the Pure model with the Plus package.
All three trim levels can be specified with a Winter Package that adds headed seats and heated washer fluid jets.
