Tough on the outside. Refined within.


Production of X-Class vehicles has ceased and there is no new vehicle stock remaining in New Zealand. The information provided on this webpage is here as a guide, should you require specific product information visit the X-Class Overview page.

Call it a true force of nature. The X-Class is at home both on and off the road, commanding attention every time you’re behind the wheel. And just like the Australian wilderness, there’s effortless calm inside the cabin whenever you put the buzz of the city behind you.

Even if the destination means roughing it when you arrive, you will still feel first class on route.

The X-Class is ready to take on the toughest environments, but it’s comfortable, carefully-designed interior has all the signature touches you’d expect from a Mercedes-Benz. 

You and your passengers can relax into adjustable seats with optional heating and enhanced lumbar support, while the one-touch engine start of KEYLESS-GO* makes getting in and taking off easy once your bags are packed. 

And when conditions outside get a little rough, inside stays quiet and comfortable, thanks to multilink front and rear coil suspension, chassis stiffening and sound deadening materials that minimise noise vibration harshness and improve the ride quality. 

DYNAMIC SELECT^ comes standard on V6 variants, meaning a choice of engine and transmission response levels - from comfortable to sporty - is always within reach. The system features five driving modes that can be changed with ease, no matter if you’re on the highway or hitting the dirt. 

When you take the X-Class off-road, there’s no sacrifice in power or ride comfort while it maintains stable handling at inclines of up to 45 degrees. 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive^ features a low-range reduction gear, and a diff-lock on the rear axle helps to maintain traction under changing conditions - from gravel and rocks to sand. 

To help you stay in charge at all times, the HD display is controlled by a scroll wheel and touchpad fitted to the centre console - it means you can do everything you need without taking your eyes off the road. You can control a lot of the centre console features from the steering wheel, too.


Take it to the next level.

There’s a range of additional Mercedes-Benz packages and individual options available to truly make the X-Class your own. 

On the PROGRESSIVE grade, the stylish Comfort Package adds creature comforts including electrically adjustable front seats with lumbar support, THERMOTRONIC dual zone automatic climate control1, seat upholstery in ARTICO man-made leather with DINAMICA microfibre, and a stowage net in the front passenger footwell. 

THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control1 allows you and your front passenger to set cabin temperatures separately, and an innovative air filtering process means dirt and dust will stay outside where it belongs.

Also available to add to the PROGRESSIVE grade, the Parking Package includes a 360˚ camera and PARKTRONIC system. The system means maneuvering is made simpler with improved visibility making it easier to hitch up to a trailer. It uses four networked cameras to show a bird's-eye view, and vision from below the window line, on the multimedia display. Four sensors in the front and four in the rear can alert you to unseen obstacles, too.

The POWER grade comes standard with both the Comfort and Parking Package features, plus you have the option to upgrade to full ARTICO man-made leather seats for extra style and comfort.
