Mercedes-Benz X-Class pickup (2017 - )

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class is a Merc as you’ve never seen one before – it’s a pickup truck. Built as a high-end alternative to more utilitarian rivals like the Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi L200, it goes head-to-head with the Volkswagen Amarok, and aims to combine the rugged ability of these pickups with the class and style of a Mercedes.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The X-Class is aimed at the more exclusive end of the pickup market, and it’s priced as such, making it an expensive option for customers.

It costs considerably more than pretty much every other rival except the Volkswagen Amarok, and with the VW, you get a brawny V6 diesel engine for your money rather than the four-cylinder you get with the Merc (unless, of course, you opt for the pricey X 350d). Mind you, while it’s too early to say exactly how solid they’ll be, you can comfortably predict the X’s desirability will mean resale values will stay strong.

With fuel consumption in the mid-thirties on both engines, the X-Class is thirstier than the equivalent Nissan Navara and about the same as the more powerful Amarok. That said, the correspondingly high CO2 emissions won’t be too much of a problem for benefit-in-kind payers, because you pay a comparatively affordable flat rate on pickups.
