Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Welcome the bakkie.

The much judged Mercedes bakkie unveils itself in South Africa. Fitting for our bakkie loving nation. 

Based on a Nissan Navara base, the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class will hope to make in roads into a segment that before last October we didn't even know it was interested in. Yes, the Mercedes bakkie has finally arrived and it was perhaps fitting that Mercedes chose Cape Town, South Africa, to debut it: South Africa, after all, will probably be the country that welcomes it most warmly as we are always eager for more expensive and luxurious ways to enjoy our khaki bush.
