Future of Mercedes X-Class ute in doubt - report

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class ute looks set to be phased out prematurely due to slow sales that have made the vehicle unprofitable even at its comparatively high price. A report out of Europe, published overnight by respected industry journal Automotive News, cited unnamed but well-informed sources claiming the Mercedes X-Class ute “is to be dropped” as the company “seeks to reduce costs amid profit warnings”.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class: What's different from Navara?

"It's just a Navara mate." There's going to be a lot of that over the next few months, and while the 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class does share a platform with the 2018 Nissan Navara, there's more than a few changes under the skin. Let's take a look at them. The X-Class has a 50mm wider body than Navara, but crucially a 70mm wider track. In theory, a wider track should deliver a more solid, planted feel on-road.
