Attractive from all angles.

Sleek side design impresses with clean lines. The flared wheel arches accentuate the wheels, in designs that can be selected by the owners to match their individual tastes.

Unmistakable ute rear design.

The lines of the vehicle meet at the rear to impress with style and functionality. Versatile grades, options and specially developed Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories make your customised ute possible.

Elevated ambience.

Never has a ute cabin inspired such impressiveness. Finely-appointed real leather seats (optional) are upholstered in sumptuous nut-brown or black leather, with complementary detailing. It’s craftsmanship like this that sets the X-Class apart from the utes as we know them.

Individual seating comfort.

Both front seats can be adjusted to suit the passenger and driver individually. With optional leather seats in a choice of black or nut brown, the X-Class sets new standards when it comes to on board comfort in a ute.

Features

A genuine ute with Mercedes-Benz distinction.

The X-Class moves the boundaries of the traditional ute world. Yet still remains true to it. Because although it breaks new ground as an urban lifestyle and family vehicle, the X-Class, at its core, remains a robust, functional ute with off-road capability that’s up to any adventure.

Transforms the interior into an inviting space.

The Comfort Package transforms the interior into a space of well-being. Electrically adjustable seats with lumbar support for driver and passenger are upholstered in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre for increased comfort and enhanced interior aesthetics.


Thanks to THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control, the driver and front passenger can set their desired temperature separately according to their individual wishes.  A sophisticated filtering system works to keep dust, soot and odours out of the cabin.

The Comfort Package is optionally available for the PROGRESSIVE grade and standard equipment on the POWER grade.

Wide track and coil springs.

The precisely-tuned suspension is designed for exceptional ride comfort and agility as well as impressive off-road capability and high load capacity.


For responsive handling with high lateral dynamics, broad track width as well as reduced rolling and pitching minimises the inclination to understeer with high lateral acceleration. Low dynamic deviations from tyre uniformity also improve vehicle control, active safety and driving dynamics.

Infotainment for the trip.

Thanks to the wealth of multimedia systems available for the X-Class, occupants have all the information, connectivity and entertainment they desire at their fingertips.


COMAND Online with its large 8.4-inch colour display uses Traffic Message Channel (TMC) – real-time traffic information – to guide you to your destination as quickly and directly as possible. In addition, its intuitive operation is conveniently accessed via the ergonomic touchpad or with the voice control of LINGUATRONIC.

COMAND Online is optionally available for the PROGRESSIVE grade and standard equipment on the POWER grade.

Effortless parking and manoeuvring.

The Parking Package with 360° camera assists the driver when parking and manoeuvring thanks to its 360° camera image and PARKTRONIC.


The 360° camera makes the immediate area surrounding the vehicle visible - both from a bird's-eye view and below the window line. Furthermore, the PARKTRONIC system visually and audibly warns of obstacles in front of the vehicle and to the rear, helping to prevent collisions when parking and manoeuvring.

A new dynamism.

A new dynamism.

Get in, press start, and experience real driving power even at low engine speeds. The exposed wheel arches framing the wide-tyred wheels not only look impressive, but their broad track width also contributes to the high transverse driving dynamics of the X-Class. Just like the agile, graduated multi-link wheel suspension on the rear axle. And so with every corner the anticipation for the next one arises and moving forward becomes driving pleasure.

X-Class safety features.

Confident and assured – and not just in terms of style. The X-Class features exemplary driving assistance and restraint systems.

With its robust design, the X-Class offers a solid basis for outstanding safety. That’s before you consider the many safety features on board. A range of dynamic handling control and braking systems can support the driver by helping to detect - and if necessary - avoid critical situations by taking evasive action.

Highly-engineered braking systems work with numerous dynamic handling control systems for absolute confidence.

The highly-sophisticated braking system is equipped with large, internally-ventilated disc brakes which work alongside dynamic handling control systems to enhance safety and ride comfort.

Valuable assistance for staying safe on multi-lane roads.

The Lane Keeping Assist function can help prevent accidents due to unintentional vehicle lane departure. A multifunction camera monitors road markings to detect if the vehicle strays from its lane.

If the system detects that the vehicle has drifted from its lane unintentionally – for example due to a lapse in attention – it warns the driver by means of a pulsating vibration of the steering wheel. This prompts the driver to apply corrective steering.

Can reduce the risk of rear-end collisions.

The Active Brake Assist can help to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle in front, warning the driver visually and audibly if the distance is reduced to an unsafe length or a collision is deemed imminent.

Helps the driver follow the rules of the road.

Traffic Sign Assist can support the driver by displaying the speed limit detected and compared with the system, any detected "no-entry" signs, "no-overtaking" restrictions as well as the ends to these restrictions.

Seven airbags as standard.

The X-Class is extensively equipped with airbags and restraint systems that can offer drivers and passengers the best possible protection in the event of an accident.

These include airbags for the driver and front passenger, a kneebag for the driver, thorax/pelvis sidebags for the driver and front passenger, windowbags, three-point seat belts, i-Size restraint systems, automatic child seat recognition and seat belt reminders for all occupants.

4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive

The inclusion of 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive ensures high levels of driving stability and handling dynamics on and off the road – even in wet and wintry conditions. A low-range reduction gear and a differential lock on the rear axle ensure exceptional performance and improved traction across a wide range of surfaces.

DYNAMIC SELECT

With a choice of five modes, the driving characteristics can be changed from relaxed and comfortable to sporty and dynamic to suit road conditions and terrain. Engine response, the automatic transmission shift points, and the ECO start/stop function are changed to fit the selected mode.

Active Lane Keeping Assist

The Lane Keeping Assist feature found in the 4-cylinder X-Class range has been enhanced in the X 350 d 4MATIC to Active Lane Keeping Assist. This system is able to detect when the vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of its lane, warning the driver and helping to guide the vehicle back on course.

Customisation

The X 350 d 4MATIC can be customised to fit your needs thanks to a wide range of options including leather seats, and a newly introduced sports bar - which can be combined with a roll cover in black or silver.
