2019 Mercedes X Class new design and rigging to a sector dominated by utility trucks. Sharing the platform with Nissan feels like a bit of a compromise because some of the items that have been moved from Navarra do not live up to the level we have come to expect from Mercedes, especially in the interior. Adaptive speed control system is missing as optional extra option. With a discussion of the X Class concept last October, we knew it was only a matter of time before Mercedes unveiled the full version of the production. Now it is finally here. With a more precise design, a range of diesel and diesel engine options, and a proven chassis, the X Class can be an instant blow from the start … assuming buyers are willing to pay the premium.
A lot of Mercedes appeal in recent years comes from design. The design of 2019 Mercedes X Class follows a lot of Mercedes design practices developed by Gordon Waginer. Male masculine arches and an aggressive front. The top of the front is in line with the look of the latest Mercedes-Benz SUV and passenger cars. The two X Class concept cars offered in Stockholm last year already preview a lot of design elements from X Class. Although new I am somewhat disappointed that the signature design elements Features such as the aggressive bottom of the front bumper and the rear LED lights of the circular highlight the back door did not make it into the production version.
X Class offers in three different versions: pure, progressive and energy. Pure has a black and black front lamp, giving it a very light but very cheap appearance – and is the backbone of the three. Progressive contains more equipment and all parts painted in body color. The power version is the most lifestyle version with the higher end optical exterior and more luxurious interior materials. In the first impression, the 2019 Mercedes X Class is a real Mercedes. The top of the dashboard looks great and features well designed air vents, a clean surface and the usual information and entertainment screen. The bottom of the dashboard but reminds me of much of the Subaru 1990s.
The main reason is the appearance of the keyboard that was moved from Nissan 1 to 1 and the automatic gear selector format. Surrounded by hard looking plastic and cheap this is not what I expect from Mercedes. Another little element of location is the controls for heated seats – remember me again from the parts of the 1990s Japanese cars. 2019 Mercedes X Class is a medium-sized double compartment truck which means that there are two separate seat seats and a rear seat. The space in the rear seat is limited both in terms of leg room and head but suitable for children and young adults.
Intelligent Infotainment You can expect similar systems as in the latest V-class and C-class although some more expensive options are kept for keeping the car at an affordable price Reasonable. The same applies to assistive systems, the X Class provides 360 degree cameras, parking sensors and warm assist as optional extras but lack of adaptive cruise adjustment puzzles. In addition to the Mercedes standard equipment developed and designed a range of optional accessories from front, side – and roll rails to Many different back coverings.
At launch, the 2019 Mercedes X Class will be available with three engine options. The diesel engine, available either in the X220d or X250d tires, will produce 163 horsepower (120 kW) and 190 hp (140 kW), respectively. A similar gas engine will produce 165 hp (122 kW). Both will be combined with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission. The more powerful X350d option will be available in mid-2019 with up to 258 hp (190 kW) and 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) torque on the tap. Mercedes says that when its strongest model is presented, it will be the “sector leader” and includes five different driving options: comfort, eco, sport, manual, off-road. At launch, the 2019 Mercedes X Class base will be equipped with a 4MATIC four-wheel drive available with differential locking rear and low-range lending. The company says that a more permanent four-wheel drive will be introduced sometime in the next year to get more off-road capability, first on the introduction of the X350d.
The new 2019 Mercedes X Class will be available in Germany starting in November with a price request of 37,294 euros including VAT (about $43,114). Pickups will be on their way to markets such as South Africa and Australia in early 2019, Argentina and Brazil in early 2019. At the moment, Mercedes has no plans to bring X Class to the United States. Considering the Mercedes designed to put X Class as a car life style car that really competes for the cooler it is the Ford Raptor – which is a little larger and more expensive. This could change if Mercedes continues to develop and will expand the 2019 Mercedes X Class line with the AMG model – but has not wanted to confirm the AMG version yet.
