Mercedes adds 6-cylinder engine and permanent AWD option for X-Class

The top model sprints from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7.9 seconds. The permanent all-wheel drive of the X 350 d 4Maticensures a high level of driving stability and dynamism under a wide range of conditions – including wet and wintry roads.

As standard the X 350 d 4Matic is equipped with the 7-speed automatic transmission 7G-Tronic Plus with steering wheel shift paddles and the ECO start/stop function.

The Dynamic Select transmission mode switch for individual driving pleasure is also included as standard. This top-of-the-line model will be available in Europe from mid-2018.

The performance of the X-Class is not only thrilling off-road, but also on the road. The wide track, the long wheelbase and the sophisticated design of the comfort suspension with a double wishbone front axle, the multi-link rear axle with a rigid section and coil springs at both axles ensure plenty of on-road driving pleasure and driving dynamics – with no compromises when off-road.
