Guaranteed to transform the perception of the classic "tradie ute", the 2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class X220d 2WD Pure Utility embodies work and leisure, all wrapped up in a playful package. Focusing on safety and functionality without sacrificing aesthetics, this sleek utility vehicle is sure to make an impression in a range of environments, from the building yard to the urban streets of Sydney.

Precision meets play

Mercedes-Benz are known for being the driving force behind the success of many businesses as a result of their innovative van solutions, and have made a name for themselves in both commercial and luxury vehicle markets. The X220d Pure blends these worlds together with a vehicle perfect for a range of driver specifications, from manual labourers or rural workers seeking a stylish package to commute between jobs, or for those who simply love the driving experience a high-quality utility can offer.

The luxe interior of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pure Utility makes commuting between job sites less work, and more relaxation.

Precision meets play in this four-door utility. While the building yard utes of yesteryear could be heard halfway down the road, the X220d Pure is equipped with a powerful yet remarkably quiet 2.3 litre diesel engine, handling the road with unparalleled precision. The front stabiliser allows for a smooth glide around sharp corners, and the top-of-the-line coil springs allow for quick correction and smooth suspension when encountering pot-holes and speed bumps. This is perfect whether heading out for fence-fixing jobs in rural paddocks, or exploring the back-roads of New South Wales.

Under the Sydney sunshine, this vehicle gleams with a pearly shine in the Chisana White finish, complemented with a jet-black trim. We wouldn't blame you for forgetting the power behind the steering wheel of this utility – the luxurious interior of the X220d Pure is reminiscent of a comfortable family sized sedan. This comfort is sure to make commuting between job sites less work, and more relaxation.

Work and leisure 

The X220d Pure seamlessly transitions from a work vehicle to a family friendly car perfect for road trip escapes. The tray of the utility is of an excellent size and can easily fit the surfboards, barbecue and tents, with room left over for the beach cricket set, easily secured using the tie down rings.

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class Pure Utility comes equipped with PARKTRONIC® technology – a solution that will transform the way you park.

No need to argue with your co-pilot over botched directions – wherever you're headed in Australia, getting from point A to point B is a breeze with the pre-installed Garmin Map Pilot Navigation. Cruise control capability takes some of the work out of long drives, and Bluetooth connectivity allows you to safely answer calls and listen to your favourite road trip tunes while keeping your eyes firmly on the road.

If the worst case scenario hits and an accident occurs, you're in safe hands – the robust X220d Pure boasts a five star ANCAP safety rating and airbags in both front and back seats.

A utility vehicle often comes with the headache of parking difficulties, especially in urban environments where parks are scarce or narrow. The X220d Pure comes equipped with PARKTRONIC® technology – an intuitive, intelligent solution that will transform the way you park. PARKTRONIC® utilises echo-based proximity sensors placed around the perimeter of the car, providing both audio and visual notifications when an appropriate car-park is in range. Once a spot is determined, PARKTRONIC® helps you ease into parallel parks by recommending the steering wheel positions necessary to make the maneuver for a quick and confident park. Furthermore, this vehicle comes with a rear view camera, for extra eyes on blind spots.
