The 2018 Mercedes X-Class can haul a payload of up to 1.1 tonnes. That's enough to transport 17 full 50-litre barrels of beer in the cargo area, for instance. Able to tow up to 3.5 tonnes, it can also pull a trailer containing three horses or an eight-metre yacht.

There are two powerful and efficient four-cylinder engines to deliver spirited performance. The high-torque common-rail diesel drive system with a displacement of 2.3 litres is available with a choice of two power outputs. In the X 220 d with single turbocharger it generates 120 kW/163 hp and in the biturbo X 250 d no less than 140 kW/190 hp. Both diesel models are available as left- or right-hand drive vehicles with purely rear wheel drive or with engageable all-wheel drive. All engines are characterised by quiet, low-vibration running and excellent power delivery coupled with low consumption figures. Power is transferred via a six-speed manual transmission. A seven-speed automatic transmission is available on request for the 140 kW/190 hp X 250 d and X 250 d 4MATIC models.

A high-torque V6 diesel engine will be released mid-2018, ensuring even greater agility on- and off-road. It will generate 190 kW/258 hp and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. This gives the X 350 d 4MATIC the leading position in the segment. The top X-Class model will come as standard with permanent 4MATIC all-wheel drive and the seven-speed automatic transmission 7G-TRONIC PLUS with steering-wheel shift paddles and ECO start/stop function. The DYNAMIC SELECT system is available in addition.

The European market launch is scheduled for November 2017. At the beginning of 2018 South Africa, Australia and New Zealand will follow, and in early 2019 Argentina and Brazil. In Germany it is available at a price from € 37,294 (incl. 19 percent VAT). The new X-Class can be ordered with immediate effect.

      Try going up a steep ploughed field in the rain somewhere in Wales. I am not impressed with the "off road" in this video. It's dry and too easy.

      Whats up with all the hate. Merc tried something new and so what? In my opinion I love this car. The interior is sick, the head and tail lights design is fresh, and i dont get the relation of a Navara and the X Class.
