Mercedes double cab arrives
The much-anticipated Mercedes-Benz C-Class has arrived locally and is sure to stir things up in the luxury SUV and bakkie market. Based on the new Nissan Navara but with significant changes, the Mercedes is available in six models at the moment – two 4x2 models and four 4x4 models, all powered by the 220d and 250d engines. As you’d expect, the X-Class is aimed at the lifestyle market, where it should snaffle a fair number of sales from luxury SUV drivers, and the interior is that of a C-Class Sedan. Prices start at R642 103 for the X220d 4x2 manual to R818 340 for the X250d 4X4 Power auto.
