THE X-class marks the dawn of a new era for Mercedes’ com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle di­vi­sion, be­cause it’s the com­pany’s first dou­ble-cab pick-up truck. It’s based on the Nis­san Navara, so it gets the same en­gine and run­ning gear, but Mercedes has aimed to give the X-class a more up­mar­ket in­te­rior, in keep­ing with its pas­sen­ger cars.

The re­sult is a rel­a­tively plush one-tonne pick-up, al­though the X-class is priced at a level that means its only real ri­val is the Volk­swa­gen Amarok V6.

Price range: £27,310-£34,100 Our pick: X 250 d (£30,510) En­gine: 2.3-litre 4cyl diesel, 187bhp Trans­mis­sion: 7-spd auto, dual-range se­lectable 4WD Top speed: 112mph Econ­omy: 36.7mpg CO2: 203g/km
