Mercedes-Benz Vans presents the X-Class with six-cylinder engine and permanent all-wheel drive

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class with a powerful six-cylinder engine and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive will celebrate its world premiere at the 88th Geneva Motor Show 2018. The X 350 d 4MATIC delivers 190 kW (258 hp) and a maximum torque of 550 newton metres. The top model sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds. The permanent all-wheel drive of the X 350 d 4MATIC ensures a high level of driving stability and dynamism under a wide range of conditions – including wet and wintry roads. As standard the X 350 d 4MATIC is equipped with the 7-speed automatic transmission 7G-TRONIC PLUS with steering wheel shift paddles and the ECO start/stop function. The DYNAMIC SELECT transmission mode switch for individual driving pleasure is also included as standard. This top-of-the-line model will be available in Europe from mid-2018, in the equipment lines PROGRESSIVE and POWER. In Germany it is available at a price from Euro 53,360 (incl. 19 percent VAT). To suit the X-Class to customer wishes even more individually, Mercedes-Benz has expanded the extensive range of accessories. New items include three rim designs, the Sports Bar, the Rollcover in black and the Softcover.

The performance of the X-Class is not only thrilling off-road, but also on the road. The wide track, the long wheelbase and the sophisticated design of the comfort suspension with a double wishbone front axle, the multi-link rear axle with a rigid section and coil springs at both axles ensure plenty of on-road driving pleasure and driving dynamics – with no compromises when off-road.

The 190 kW (258 hp) 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine with common-rail direct injection impresses with its muscular power delivery. The maximum torque of 550 newton metres is available over a wide engine speed range of 1400 to 3200 rpm. This means that high torque is already available from low engine speeds. Whether for a sporty driving style, comfortable long-distance touring or off-road driving in difficult conditions – the V6 always guarantees serene and efficient progress. Its special features include lightweight design, the single-stage turbocharger with variable turbine geometry for particularly agile engine response and the innovative NANOSLIDE® cylinder liner coating also used in Formula 1.
