"There has never been a more perfect time for Mercedes-Benz Vans to enter the bakkie segment in South Africa. But in true Mercedes-Benz fashion, we are opening this segment to a new customer group who want a robust bakkie with refined sophistication and unparalleled driving comfort."SUVs seem to be grabbing all the hot car awards lately, but the bakkie business remains ludicrously profitable. Modern bakkies have begun to introduce levels of comfort and tech features previously only seen in high-end family vehicles. And indeed – double cabs could very well be perceived as such these days. How could Merc resist? But, how does the X-Class measure up to the tough and rugged competition in South Africa? How much can this bakkie even haul – that’s all we really want to know. Will the X-Class manage to change the SA bakkie landscape forever, or will it only serve to reinforce our Hilux loyalty?
