Following the release of the new X 350 d 4MATIC X-Class model in December last year, Mercedes-Benz has announced a limited edition variant called The Edition 1.
Available in three different colours, kabara black, bering white or rock grey. For the exterior parts, black is the order of the day: boasting a black centrally positioned star and twin-louvre radiator grill, front and rear bumper-bar valance, fog light surrounds, side door handles, rear tailgate handle, nomenclature badges, beltline trim strip, roof rails and 19-inch 6-twin-spoke alloy wheels. As a first for X-Class sports stripes adorn the engine bonnet, side mirrors, V6 badge surrounds, lower side lines and rear tailgate. In kabara black, all exterior parts and stripes are a high gloss finish, with the sports stripes appearing in grey for contrasting impact. In bering white and rock grey, a matt black finish is applied for all exterior parts and stripes.
The black styling bar and tubed side steps give the Edition 1 an even sportier and more progressive character. Combined with a bedliner and hard tonneau cover in the vehicle colour, the standard Edition 1 equipment helps get the job done whilst giving it a distinctive look and appeal.
Visual highlights in the interior include floor mats with Edition 1 embroidery and a chrome Edition 1 badge on the passenger side dash. Standard leather heated.
The Edition 1 is based on the X 350 d POWER variant, meaning dynamic driving pleasure continues to be ensured thanks to the 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 190 kW/550 Nm and the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system with low range reduction gear.
The Edition 1 X 350 d 4MATIC is priced at $87,500 (MRLP).
