2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class 250d Progressive review


Then there’s the value-for-money equation, which we touched on earlier. Because while that $57,800 RRP seems reasonable, that’s not what our test car costs. The ‘as-tested’ price, according to MB Australia’s own spreadsheet, is actually $71,630. Gulp. That’s on account of the optional extras.

First, the tub-liner and sports bar cost $2450 combined, after GST. Then there’s the Parking Pack that adds the 360-degree camera display and auto parking software ($1750), and the Comfort Pack that adds electric front seats in faux leather/suede, a storage net in the passenger footwell and auto climate control ($2490).

Plus, there’s the Style Pack that adds LED headlights, rear privacy glass, the electric rear window – standard on the Navara – side steps, roof rails and 18-inch wheels (not 17s as standard), for an extra $3750. And also the COMAND Online system, bringing a more advanced sat-nav system than the base Garmin software, plus a wireless hotspot, inbuilt flash drive and DVD player ($2990). Finally, black roof-lining costs $400.
