2018 Mercedes X Class X250d 4MATIC Full Review – Interior Exterior Infotainment – Car Trend

It’s been a little over one year since Mercedes gave us a taste of their first ever mid-size pickup truck in the form of the X-Class Concept, and now, we’ve driven the real deal on both motorways and snow-covered mountain roads.

This isn’t just Mercedes’ first pickup truck, but the first such mid-size vehicle for any premium automaker, which the Germans themselves will happily point out, while also highlighting the fact that they were also the first to the luxury SUV game with the M-Class.

Whether the X-Class will have the same effect on the industry, spurring other premium manufacturers to follow suit, remains to be seen.

Benz’ mid-size premium pickup is aimed at a wide range of individuals, who don’t necessarily have specific (or heavy duty) professional needs, but are looking for a light duty truck with a premium badge.

A Tale Of Two Halves

By now, most of you probably know that the X-Class shares the same underpinnings as the Nissan Navara NP300 and the Renault Alaskan. It also shares some of the styling, which is quite evident unless you’re looking at it directly from the front.

In the flesh, the production model isn’t as imposing as any of the two X-Class concepts from last year, the Stylish Explorer and the Powerful Adventurer. Then again, concepts are meant to make an impression on shows and very rarely make the transition to the production line without a host of changes.

Buying an X-Class will cost you a lot less than a GLE, and that’s been made possible, as the company admits, by teaming up with Nissan, which meant there were restrictions to what Merc’s designers could (or couldn’t) change. The badge does help, obviously, as does the elegant and purposeful Mercedes-Benz design language around the front fascia; you’d probably think it was a Mercedes SUV if you saw it in your rear-view mirror.

If styling is anywhere near the top of your list, we recommend you spring for the flagship ‘Power’ model, as it looks considerably more upscale than the base ‘Pure’ or the mid-range ‘Progressive’ ones. Which, as we shall see, does have a lot to do with the interior, too.
