The game-changing X-Class is taking the UK by storm 

Mercedes-Benz Vans latest creation has collected its first UK award - Professional Pickup of the Year - at the Professional Pickup & 4x4 Awards 2018.

Sometimes a vehicle isn't just a set of wheels, sometimes it's a companion that we simply can't do without. The Pickup and 4x4 sector is home to some of the most reliable motors available, such as the unstoppable X-Class!

The judging for the Professional Pickup & 4x4 Awards took place back in December 2017 at the Carlton Towers Estate in Yorkshire, where a panel of 12 pickup owners gathered to vote for their top performers in the market.

Being every day drivers of these types of vehicles, the judges knew exactly how well their motors fit into their daily lives and wide variety of professions; such as farming, building, estate managing, fencing, plant hire, agricultural supplies and even a professional hunter.

This is where the Mercedes-Benz X-Class showed its strengths. Showcasing the perfect balance between robust engineering and elegant design, the X-Class is built for all your commercial needs. Not only has it got the looks, but it also has the capability and durability for the toughest of tasks. That's why it was no surprise that this latest model from Mercedes-Benz Vans has now been rewarded with its first UK title - 'Professional Pickup of the Year'.

Liam Campbell, Editor at Professional Pickup & 4x4, said: “The Mercedes-Benz X-Class ticked all the boxes when it came to the juries’ requirements. From a lifestyle perspective, it was deemed the most comfortable, refined and the best furnished out of all the contenders, but also from a working aspect, the X-Class has a 3.5t towing capacity, a respectable 4WD system and it’s backed by Mercedes-Benz’s reputable commercial vehicle Dealer network.”

In addition to the X-Class winning Professional Pickup of the Year, the Sprinter 4x4 (current model) collected 4x4 Commercial Vehicle of the Year; a further testament to the on- and off-road capabilities of the multi-award winning large Mercedes-Benz van.

Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans UK Ltd, said: “We are delighted that the game-changing X-Class has won its first UK award so soon after launching. The feedback from customers and those who have tested the vehicle has been outstanding and we are pleased to be raising the bar in this ever-growing sector with the first truly premium pickup.”
