IN CON­TROL

In a first for off-road­ing, the X-class has vented disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. Com­bine that with dou­ble wish­bone front sus­pen­sion and vari­able rate rear coil sus­pen­sion and you’ve got to­tal con­trol and agility with a high level of com­fort - per­fect for the bi­tu­men or the bush.

KEEP MOV­ING

When the lock­ing rear dif­fer­en­tial is on, the wheels turn at the same speed, keep­ing the X-class mov­ing with­out slip­ping in dif­fi­cult ter­rain. Plus, with Down­hill Speed Reg­u­la­tion on the 4MATIC vari­ants, you can reg­u­late your speed down­hill at the touch of a but­ton.

A STA­BLE RE­LA­TION­SHIP

The X-class has wide front and rear tracks, which al­lows for bet­ter sta­bil­ity and han­dling, no mat­ter where you’re driv­ing. It also en­sures rolling and pitch­ing move­ments are re­duced, and it will counter any un­der­steer­ing ten­den­cies, even with high lateral ac­cel­er­a­tion. Cor­ner­ing abil­ity is taken care of with di­rect, pre­cise steer­ing.

EX­PLORE MORE

With a ramp breakover an­gle of 22 de­grees, gen­er­ous 222mm ground clear­ance, and a whop­ping 600mm wad­ing depth, the X-class can get wher­ever you need it to.
