Load Area

Robust, easy to clean loading bed
Mountain bikes, bales of hay, chainsaws, whatever you want; the X-Class’s loading bed can easily handle dirty, wet or dusty objects up to a length of 1,587mm and weight of 1,092 kg. Between the wheel arches, the loading bed is wide enough for a transversely loaded Euro pallet.

Load bed cover
Weather-resistant bedding provides effective protection against water damage over time.

Rail system for Cargo retention
The loading area is equipped with rails on 3 walls so you can secure cargo with straps – and keep everything where it should be.

Water and dust protection
3 fixed seals on the boot lid help to protect the truck against water and dust.

Load bed anchoring rail
4 cargo retention rails, attached to the bottom of the truck bed, allow for confident load securing.

180° tailgate opening
The tailgate can be folded down completely for full and convenient access to the rear (available only with the PURE line).

    Engines and transmission - the power of choice

    Power and efficiency. Our choice of two high-torque 4-cylinder common-rail turbo diesel engines impress with their superior performance characteristics and low fuel consumption. The X 250 d with 190hp uses twin-turbo technology for a greater level of in-gear performance, less turbo-lag and compelling fuel consumption.

    The PURE and PROGRESSIVE lines offer the possibility of two engines; the X 220 d 4MATIC (163hp) or X 250 d 4MATIC (190 hp).

    The POWER line is only available with the X 250 d 4 MATIC (190hp) engine.

    6-speed manual transmission
    Delivers smooth, precise gear shifts and an engaging drive. The X-Class with manual transmission also impresses with its accurate clutch for good control off and on road.

    7-speed automatic transmission
    Facilities comfortable and quick gear changes, offering high levels of driving comfort. The 7-speed automatic transmission also features a manual shift modem, for dynamic driving and high levels of control off-road.

    All-wheel drive
    The X-Class offers 3 driving modes including rear-wheel-drive, 4MATIC and 4MATIC low-range. The standard Downhill Speed Regulator helps you to master steep downhill gradients with full control and safety. 

    A heightened sense of safety

    Lane Keeping Assist
    This function helps prevent accidents caused by unintentionally leaving the lane the vehicle is travelling in. A camera on the inside of the windscreen registers lane markings, while the system monitors the driver’s actions in order to determine whether a lane change is intentional or not. If the system indicates a drift, steering wheel vibrations and visual signals warn the driver.

    Traffic Sign Assist
    Traffic Sign Assist utilises a camera situated on the windscreen to recognise traffic signs and displays them, along with the current speed limit, on the instrument cluster multifunction display – and in the navigation mode on the media display.

    Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, and reduce the risk of a rear-end collision, thanks to Active Brake Assist. The system warns of potential danger, and in the event of emergency braking, you will also be supported by the adaptive brake assistant.

    Tyre pressure monitoring
    The standard tyre pressure monitoring system informs you when there is insufficient tyre pressure, allowing you to take action before setting off.

    Adaptive brake lights
    Adapative Brake Lights ensure that vehicles behind you are fully aware if you are emergency braking. All three brake lamps will start flashing in the event of a critical braking manoeuvre, or the activation of ESP or ABS. This provides a vital warning and can help shorten a driver’s reaction time. If the vehicles is brought to a complete standstill from a speed greater than 40 mph, the hazard warning lamps are automatically activated to further assist in preventing a collision.

      Electronic Stability Programme with Trailer stability Assist
      The X-Class’s Electronic Stability Programme is an innovative handling dynamics control system that takes the vehicle load into account. In critical situations, for instance when there is an imminent risk of skidding, it can help stabilise the vehicle by applying brakes to individual wheels and adjusting the engine’s torque.

      Trailer Stability Assist also offers dynamic stability when carrying a load or towing a trailer. If weaving is detected it can be limited through the targeted braking of vehicle wheels. This stability programme also includes the ABS Anti-lock Braking System, ASR acceleration slip regulations, BAS Brake Assist, EBD Brakeforce Distribution and Hill Start Assist.

       Airbags and restraint systems
      The X-Class is comprehensively equipped with 7 airbags and further restraint systems that offer the best possible protection in the event of an accident. The systems can – depending on the type and severity of the collision – significantly reduce the risk of serious injuries. The automatic child seat recognition feature, automatically switches off the front-passenger airbag if the front passenger seat is unoccupied or a child seat is recognised.

        Your life, your X-Class

        The X-Class offers a choice of three equipment lines – PURE, PROGRESSIVE and POWER. Designed to deliver varying degrees of functionality, comfort and style, you can choose the one that suits your lifestyle and requirements best. In addition, there are several rear-of-vehicle options to consider, depending on how you’ll use the vehicle most. Add to this a wide range of Genuine Accessories to select from, and you’ll really be able to stamp your individuality on the X-Class.
