Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
Mercedes is still holding its X350d pricing close to its chest, but we can make an educated guess or two. We're tipping the V6-powered X-Class, which will lob in Progressive and Power trim levels, and that they will land at about $10k over their four-cylinder equivalent when they touch down toward the end of the year.
With the current X-Class pricing sitting at around $58k for the Progressive auto, and $64k for the Power auto, that should put the V6-powered X-Class at between about $70k and $80k, give or take a couple of grand.
For that, though, you'll step into a pretty well-equipped ute. Progressive cars will get 18-inch alloys (up from 17-inch wheels on the four-cylinder models), a leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and keyless entry and push-button start.
Step up to the Power trim, and you'll add shining 19-inch alloys, LED headlights, faux-leather seats and some better-looking cabin furniture.
Media duties across both trims are handled by a nav-equipped 7.0- or 8.4-inch screen that pairs with an eight-speaker stereo (but there is no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto on offer).
