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

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class, with a powerful six-cylinder engine and 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive, celebrated its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

The X 350 d 4Matic has provisional fuel consumption figures of a combined: 31.3mpg, and combined CO2 emissions: 237g/km. It delivers 258hp (190kW ) and a maximum torque of 550 Newton metres.

The top model sprints from zero to 62mph (100km/h ) in 7.9 seconds. The permanent all-wheel drive of the X 350 d 4Matic ensures 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 seven-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.
