This is the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, one of the most hyped launches this year. For some, the three-pointed star badge will be irresistible. Does it deserve the love?

      All these salty people here commenting about "why whould you even buy this unless for the Merc logo, or, there are more utes out there that is just significantly better than this, and things like that" and maybe your right, but, you also got to keep in mind that THIS IS THE FIRST TIME, Mercedes-Benz actually made and sold a pick-up truck internationally, they had to of course start from scratch, because they really don't have that much of an idea how to build a pick-up truck, your comparing Mercedes-Benz to something like Toyota or Ford who had significantly had more experience than Mercedes-Benz in building a pick-up truck they of course focused more on will this FIRST pick-up truck that they made reliable enough to be sold internationally than focusing on looks and design and overall creative thinking, so stop the hates, if you don't like it, just shut up about it, its like basically cursing words at someone who bumped you on the road due to wreckless driving but just found out that he/she is actually a first time student driver comparing yourself that you are already a veteran driver with 10 year above of experience, your just showing yourself how shallow of a person you are.

      My choice would be a Ranger or Amarok.

      Look how many people bag it for being a Navara without any idea of how different it is. Try reading up on it first. Shared platforms is hardly unheard of in the automotive world.Personally I wouldn't but one but it's leagues above a Colorado FFS. People pay similar money for a Wildtrak and they're hardly reliable.

      A couple of mistakes in this article, one is Amarok's have the lefthand side indicator stalks, not just the Merc, which I'll say is a retro-fit because the Nissan doesn't....

      Its like buying the HSV Colorado Sportscat over a standard Colorado you get the exact same engine and maybe a bit of better goodies but who wants to pay an extra couple of thousand dollars just for a same ute but with no engine upgrade

      I don't understand the complaint about no push button start. If it still uses old school remote keyfob lock/unlock then you still have to handle the key to gain entry and the ignition gives you a place hold the key securely while your driving

      This car is nothing more than an overpriced Nissan ! I might give the next generation a chance if it’s developed in house by Mercedes and with a focus on luxury and refinement.

      The Accounting Dept. went to work on this one. It looks nothing like the concept car. Even the funky (yet impractical) tailgate was axed. Sad.

      I'm confused at the left hand indicator "reflecting its European origin." I thought the car was essentially a Nissan, so isn't its origin Japan? Does this mean that they have gone out of their way to put the indicator on the other side?

      Piece of euro junk! anyone who buys this uglier shitter version of the Navara must have more money than brains. What's the bet it gets Mercedes famous reliability (or lack there of) & not Nissan's? If German cars were that great they'd have the best warranties & reliability but they don't you pay for a crummy badge that's it lol.
