It looks like more reviews are beginning to trickle in the for X-Class and some of them seem to be a little disappointed with the latest 3 point star. CarAdvice found it to be lacking in finish that usually found on MB products, and the whopping $14k in additional options, drives the price well beyond that of comparable rivals. They have suggested waiting to see what sort of deals/incentives Mercedes may offer on this new ute.

Imo the Navara seems to be of much better value, as MB went a little too overboard with the pricing and additional options on the X Class. I'll definitely be holding out until we get a look at the V6 model, as this trim doesn't really seem to be capable of doing anything better than much cheaper rivals.

Too bad people won't see it that way. The X-Class is a simple response to a growing pick-up truck market. People will impulse buy these and at the same time they won't be the typical pick up truck buyers you see from brands like RAM, GM, Ford, Nissan and Toyota.

Yeah I doubt that anyone looking to get into the X Class this early, really has any interest in the utility in provides. I think people are more looking at it as a luxury SUV with a bed, than a work truck. You do have to admit that the interior quality isn't exactly up to par for a MB product. Luckily for them that badge carries some weight to it.
