  • 2019 Mercedes Sprinter Caught Testing On Twisty Roads

GERMAN vehicle maker Mercedes-Benz has entered the highly competitive ute market, unveiling its much anticipated luxury X-Class in South Africa overnight.

Mercedes UK are already taking orders for the new X-Class, with first deliveries expected before the end of 2017. With the new Mercedes X-Class it says it's looking to redefine the sector, bringing premium passenger auto levels of comfort, quality and tech to a party that has historically been populated by tough workhorses.

The new X-Class will be rolled out in Germany and Argentina this November, and then in Latin America in 2018.

"The fact is we love utes and we are showing a desire to incorporate this type of vehicle into our lives in more ways than we did in the past".

Mercedes-Benz reshuffles its new S-Class range with an S 450 and S 500 both powered by versions of Sindelfingen's new M256 inline six-cylinder engine replacing the Vs...

"With the X-Class we will open up this segment to new customer groups, just as we redefined the off-road segment with the M-Class more than 20 years ago". Due to go on sale at the end of the year, the X-Class is expected to start at around £28,000 plus Value-Added Tax. On the Pure the bumpers are unpainted, while on the Progressive and Power they are body-colour. The X-Class POWER is a lifestyle vehicle beyond the mainstream - suitable for urban environments as well as for sports and leisure activities off the beaten track.

It's only fair to share.

To get a rough idea of price, the X-CLass will cost €37,294 over in the Continent. The rear seat row for three people is positioned at a comfortable height and has reinforced seat side bolsters for optimum support in the outer seating positions. A tub liner, rear tie-down rails, towbar, and rear sports bar will also be available. The Mercedes model will be available initially with two diesel options as well as a gasoline engine. At launch, the X-Class will come with switchable 4Matic all-wheel drive with a low-range gearbox, while a permanent all-wheel drive system will arrive later.

The four-pot diesels will be available from launch, which is slated for the beginning of 2018 in Australia, however the V6 isn't set for release until mid-2018.

Trim levels for the X-Class start with Pure and this is followed by Power and Progressive.
