New Mercedes X-Class Element Edition trim launched

The new limited Mercedes X-Class Element Edition pick-up features more standard equipment and a unique livery

Mercedes has launched a new, limited edition variant of its X-Class pick-up truck. Called the Mercedes X-Class Element Edition, it adds a range of optional extras and a handful of unique styling features to the range topping X-Class Progressive. The new model is available for business lease in the UK now from £459 per month on a 36-month contract, with a £2,754 deposit. 

Upgrades over the X-Class Progressive start with Mercedes’s Comfort Pack. The option package adds electrically adjustable driver and passenger seats, Artico leather upholstery, automatic climate control and a complex filtering system for the ventilation system, which Mercedes claims prevents dust, soot and odours from entering the cabin.

The X-Class Element Edition also comes as standard with the Style Pack - optional on regular X-Class models. It adds a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED tail lights, privacy glass, updated running boards and anodised roof rails. Buyers also get a special edition livery, a load bed liner and a choice of three metallic paint colours.

It’s powered by turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, producing 188bhp and 450Nm of torque. Performance is fed through a seven-speed automatic to a selectable four-wheel-drive system and, like the standard X 250d, it retains its 11.8 second 0–62mph time and maximum braked towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.

Much like its consumer-focused stablemates, safety equipment for the commercial-minded X-Class Element Edition is comprehensive, stretching to active braking assist, lane-keeping assist, hill-start assist, a vast array of airbags, a stop-start function and a reversing camera. Buyers can also spec Mercedes’s Trailer Stability Assist as an optional extra.
