- Mercedes-Benz X-Class X250d Progressive Auto 4MATIC Dual Cab – $47,990
We’ve spotted the Mercedes-Benz X-Class X250d Progressive Auto 4MATIC Dual Cab at several dealers around the country for just $47,990 driveaway, which is a significant saving on the list price of $54,900 plus on-road costs.
Sure, the X250d is based on the Navara, but there have been several changes under the skin that make the Benz an improved version of Nissan’s coil-spring ute. In this spec, the X-Class comes with Nissan’s 2.3-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine that makes a claimed 140kW and 450Nm, and it’s mated to a seven-speed auto with a part-time 4×4 system, a two-speed transfer case and a locking rear diff. Payload is 1110kg and maximum braked towing capacity is 3500kg.
In Progressive spec the X250d comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, semi-auto air conditioning and a 7-inch infotainment screen. Active safety kit includes ABS, stability control, EBD, lane keeping assist, trailer stability assist, tyre pressure monitor, reversing camera and more.
The X-Class hasn’t been the great sales success that Mercedes-Benz hoped it would be and there are no plans for a future-generation model so this could be one of your last chances to pick one up… and at a significant saving.
