Mercedes X 350 d Car Test


In this issue we review the marvellous Mercedes X 350, a truly premium pickup which combines superb versatility with real luxury. Few commercial vehicles look as good as the X 350 and in a sense the X-Class is redefining what it means to be a pickup. As well as the robust practicality we were very impressed by the quiet, comfortable ride, luxurious cabin environment, extensive on-board connectivity and 'Mercedes me' driver support technology.


Let’s start with the cabin, it’s ergonomically designed and has the same air vents, infotainment screen and instrument dials as the Mercedes-


Benz SUV range. We really enjoyed the comfortable lumbar-supportive seats and the man-made leather on the dashboard and tops of the doors, with contrast stitching, adds sense of style as well as comfort.


Out on the road it’s very quiet due to enhanced sound insulation which isolates tyre and wind noise.


Technologically, as you would expect from Mercedes, there’s a high level of state-of-the-art equipment, including powerful on-board connectivity and a great 7" high-resolution colour screen with a touch pad, Bluetooth, DAB radio, reverse camera and pre-installation for Garmin MAP PILOT route guidance.


The icing on the cake is really the superb 4MATIC 4-wheel drive system, which automatically adjusts to allow you to drive across different types of terrain and road surface. If any of the four wheels begins to slip, power is automatically sent to the opposite wheel. Even if three of the four wheels are affected, the fourth wheel adjusts to support the driving conditions.


Our Mercedes X 350 d was powered by a 7-speed automatic transmission, which worked very well alongside the ABS and Electronic Stability Program to deliver a hugely stable and comfortable drive.


Mercedes X Class can be rented for as little as £250 per month, we recommend you explore further and book a test drive as we did. Visit mercedes-benz.co.uk or call their customer support team on 020 7660 9993.
