Mercedes’ class of 2018


Mercedes-benz’s first-ever ute will be mar­keted in three dif­fer­ent ver­sions, the work­horse Pure, the more up­scale Pro­gres­sive, and the lux­ury flag­ship Power. The New Zealand line-up is yet to be de­cided, but Mercedes has re­leased de­tails of the Euro­pean mar­ket utes. We out­line the three mod­els briefly in this story.

X-class Pure

THOUGH NEW ZEALAND spec­i­fi­ca­tions are yet to be an­nounced, the Euro­pean ver­sion of the en­try-level X-class Pure has a grained black front bumper and a black painted rear bumper.

It rides on 17-inch steel wheels, and has halo­gen head­lights and elec­tri­callyad­justable ex­te­rior mir­rors.

It has a black-fin­ished in­stru­ment panel, high-gloss black ven­ti­la­tion out­lets, and black Tunja fab­ric seat up­hol­stery.

The floor cov­er­ing is plas­tic, and the

front seats are man­u­ally-ad­justable.

The in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem is an Audio 20 CD sys­tem, air-con­di­tion­ing is stan­dard sys­tem, and a rev­ers­ing cam­era is fit­ted.

Rear-wheel drive and a six-speed man­ual gear­box are stan­dard, and a seven-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and 4MATIC all-wheel drive are avail­able.

An op­tional Plus Pack­age in­cludes the Park­tronic park­ing as­sis­tance sys­tem along with load-se­cur­ing rails in the cargo tray floor.
