Mercedes X-Class Element Edition launched

Special-edition pickup truck features extra equipment and unique styling features

Mercedes has revealed a limited-edition trim level for its X-Class pickup. The new Element Edition gets additional comfort and usability features, plus graphics on the sides of the pickup bed. It’s available to order now through the Mercedes-Benz Vans dealer network.

Rivalling the Volkswagen Amarok and the Toyota Hilux, the Mercedes X-Class Element Edition features eye-catching graphics on the rear bodywork, which stretches from the middle of the rear doors to the back of the truck. Three colours are available: a non-metallic white, or metallic silver or black, with all featuring a colour-coded sports bar surrounding the rear truck bed.

Based on the entry X-Class Progressive trim level, the Element Edition comes as standard with chrome door handles, a rugged-looking black under guard, load-securing rails and heated mirrors.

The exterior styling gets further upgrades with the standard-fit Style Pack, normally an additional cost option. This adds 19-inch alloy wheels, LED lights all round, privacy glass, side steps and roof rails.

Inside, the Mercedes Comfort Pack is fitted as standard. This adds Artico leather upholstery, automatic climate control and an advanced filter system that can stop dust and odours entering the cabin.

The X-Class also features lots of safety equipment, including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, an anti-theft package and traffic sign assistance. A reversing camera is also standard, and you can add trailer stability assistance as an optional extra.

Power comes from a turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. This produces 188bhp, with power going through a seven-speed automatic gearbox to a selectable four-wheel drive system. Performance remains identical to the standard X 250d, with a 0-62mph sprint time of 11.8 seconds and a maximum braked towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

The X-Class Element Edition is available on a three-year contract hire agreement priced from £459 per month with a £2,754 initial rental.
