The Mercedes-Benz X Class is a vehicle for those looking for something truly versatile. Think SUV, Estate and small truck and merge them together and you might be somewhere close to imagining the X Class. It’s essentially a high class pickup truck with a double cab.

The Mercedes-Benz X Class is the manufacturer’s first foray into the lifestyle pickup market and in true Mercedes style it pulls it off with aplomb. There have been a couple of previous attempts at developing a pick-up but neither of those was truly designed to have the wide appeal that we see here with the X Class.
So, what are the engine choices? There are two diesel options – both feature a 2.3 litre engine with one producing 161bhp and the other 187bhp. Likewise, there are two transmission options, choose from a manual 6-speed or an automatic 7-speed. With 3 trim levels available too, the X-class can certainly be tailored to your preference to some degree.
The 7-speed transmission features only as an option with the more powerful of the diesel engines with the 6-speed being standard on the other model. If you would prefer something a little more intense, another option is coming which arrives packed with a V6 engine, 9-speed auto gearbox in addition to the full time four wheel drive. The current models both have a selectable four wheel drive option. Across the board a low range gearbox comes as standard while a locking differential is optional.
For a vehicle of this nature, the hydraulic steering has a lighter feel and at first may feel a little sluggish. Rather than see any negativity here, when the X Class heads off road, these features actually turn into positives. The compromises in handling are certainly intentional from the manufacturer as it seeks to broaden the machine’s appeal.
If you were to line up other pick-ups on the market, the Mercedes-Benz X Class certainly has the edge and noticeably smooths out some of the rougher bumps on the surface. Don’t expect SUV levels of smoothness, we are not there yet but we are certainly heading in the right direction.
