Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pure 2018 ute review: snapshot

The Pure is visually defined by black-grained bumpers and 17-inch steel wheels
EXPERT RATING
6.5
The Mercedes-Benz X-Class 2018 range is opened by the Pure variant.

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class 2018 range is opened by the Pure variant, which is pretty sparsely equipped,  but aimed purely at workers on farms and tradies (and don't they love a Mercedes badge). 

It is visually defined by black-grained bumpers and 17-inch steel wheels, but it still gets power-adjustable side mirrors. You get halogen headlights and tail-lights in this spec.

On the inside there’s piano black vent surrounds, black 'Tunja' fabric trim, plastic floor covering, air-conditioning, cruise control, a plastic steering wheel and gear selector, tyre-pressure monitoring, and a 7.0-inch Audio 20 CD multimedia system with Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB connectivity and four speakers. It has a reversing camera for the pick-up only - the cab-chassis doesn’t have one. 

There are a bunch of different optional packs available depending on the trim level - read the Mercedes-Benz X-Class 2018 pricing and specs story for more info.

You can get the Pure model with the choice of two drivetrains at launch, the X220d and the X250d - see the drivetrains section below for the specifics. 

The entry point to the range is the Pure cab-chassis rear-wheel drive manual, at $45,450 (all prices plus on-road costs). You can have it as a RWD manual pick-up at $46,400, or as a manual with 4Matic four-wheel drive for $50,400.

The X250d Pure 4Matic starts off at $51,450 for the manual cab-chassis and you’ll need to add $2900 for the auto ($54,350). The X250d Pure 4Matic pick-up manual is $52,400, with the auto costing $55,300.

Standard safety kit includes auto emergency braking (AEB) with lane-keeping assist, plus seven airbags (dual front, driver’s knee, front side and full-length curtain), as well as ISOFIX child-seat anchors and top-tether points. It has the maximum five-star ANCAP crash test rating.
