Pricing for the Mercedes-Benz X-Class bakkie has been released in South Africa, which has been in effect as of the 1st of April 2018.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class Equipment lines

MBSA also confirmed two design and equipment lines:

 The first is the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Progressive. This gives the rugged bakkie some extra styling and comfort functions making it prestigious for private or dual use.

The second is the high-end line X-Class Power. This is for buyers who find styling, performance and comfort equally important. This variant is suitable for urban environments as well as for sports and leisure activities that go off-road. Also, it has a high-level of equipment that would immediately reflect an independent and individualistic lifestyle.

The first models will be available with two versions of Nissan’s 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine. The X220d has a single-turbo and puts out 120 kW and 403 Nm of torque. The twin-turbo variant in the X250d produces 140 kW and 450 Nm of torque. Later this year, a 3.0-litre V6 will make an appearance with outputs of 190 kW and 550 Nm of torque. In addition, automatic transmissions are available as an option at an additional R27 025.

Nadia Trimmel, head of Mercedes-Benz Vans Southern Africa said: “The much-anticipated Mercedes-Benz X-Class is well-positioned to elevate the South African bakkie segment to the next level. Yet it will do this not only by offering a dynamic design paired with a luxurious interior and unparalleled performance but also by being perfectly-priced.”

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class orders are open. The first deliveries will take place in mid-May 2018. It has its own website whereby you can get more information, configure your own X-Class or find authorized dealers. Visit
