- New limited edition version of poshest pickup on sale
- Comes crammed with standard equipment but still a hefty price
- Available to buy entirely online, with choice of finance options
Mercedes-Benz has announced a limited Edition 1 X-Class pickup truck. And in a somewhat radical move – especially for the generally conservative light commercial vehicle market – Mercedes is making it possible to buy the X-Class Edition 1 entirely online.
What’s special about the Mercedes X-Class Edition 1?
The Edition 1 is based on the regular X-Class Power specification – the top spec in the standard range – but adds quite a few addition items.
Here are the highlight standard equipment items:
- Electrically adjustable front seats
- Electric, heated door mirrors
- Automatic climate control
- Keyless entry and start
- Front and rear parking sensors
- 360-degree camera system
- LED headlights
- Automatic lights and wipers
- Cruise control
- 19-inch alloy wheels
- Running boards
- Anodised roof rails
- Kabara black metallic paint
- Winter Package – including heated washer jets and heated front seats
On top of all this, Mercedes is also include two free services with every purchase of the X-Class Edition 1.
Note, however, that the Edition 1’s large 19-inch alloy wheels won’t do the X-Class’s already slightly abrupt ride comfort any favours.
Can I really order a Mercedes X-Class Edition 1 online?
Absolutely. Simply go to shoponline.mbvans.co.uk and get clicking.
There’s a choice of different finance options and terms to consider, catering for both private buyers and business users.
If you want to buy outright, rather than on finance, you will have to contact your local Mercedes Vans dealer instead.
Online buyers can choose to have the Edition 1 delivered directly to their house, or the nearest dealership.
How much does the Mercedes X-Class Edition 1 cost?
Are you sitting down? If not, find a chair. Quick.
The on the road price for the Mercedes X-Class Edition 1 is £49,703.
And that’s with the 190hp four-cylinder X 250 d engine, rather than the new, and hugely powerful, 258hp X 350 d 3.0-litre V6.
While that price does include VAT, even the ex-VAT price is £41,156. Which is £7,056 more than an X 250 d Power. How much do you value exclusivity?
