The X250d Power is one of the more popular models of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class range, which features the fuel-efficient 2.3-litre engine in the well-equipped ‘Power’ trim. We take a brief drive and see what stands out.
X-Class X250d Power: Specification
The X-Class Power specification is the highest of any conventional pickup truck, rivalling some premium passenger cars for the number of creature comforts. Standard exterior features include 18-inch six-spoke alloys, front fog lights, electric heated and adjustable door mirrors, LED lights, a chrome rear bumper with access step and chrome detailing on the grille and fog lights.
Meanwhile, on the inside, you can expect to find dual-zone climate control, cruise control, keyless entry and start, a parking camera, heated leather seats, leather-covered steering wheel and handbrake, a DAB radio with 7.0-inch touchscreen display, voice control, Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
X-Class X250d Power: Engine
The X-Class X250d uses the tried-and-tested Renault-Nissan 2.3-litre YS23 engine, which has been used in the Renault Master and Vauxhall Movano vans since 2010. It produces up to 188bhp (3,750rpm) and 450Nm (1,500-2,500rpm) and reaches 62mph from standstill in 11.8 seconds. On the combined NEDC cycle, the X250d returns 35.8mpg (29.4mpg in the city and 40.9mpg highway).
The X250d engine is hooked to a seven-speed automatic transmission and a part-time 4WD system with three settings – 2Hi, 4Hi and 4Low. A rear diff lock can be added for £490 plus VAT.
X-Class X250d Power: Price and Availability
