Mercedes-Benz X-Class Gets A Visual Makeover From Prior Design

While the new Mercedes-Benz X-Class is not exactly “tuning material”, Prior Design believe that it could still use a visual upgrade or two.

Starting at the front, we can see that the bumper has been changed, featuring larger air intakes and a thin LED strip on each side, likely serving as DRLs. There’s also a tweaked grille, with the tuner’s logo replacing Mercedes3-pointed star.

The pickup has also received wide fenders for all four corners, a slightly modified rear bumper, and an aftermarket wheel set that’s shown wrapped in either wide tires, or all-terrain ones. The latter version has a few design changes compared to the former, noticeable mostly at the front where the sporty bumper is replaced with one that’s more suitable for challenging terrains.

Prior Design hasn’t made the Mercedes-Benz X-Class more powerful, but they can fit it with aftermarket suspensions and exhaust systems on request, plus special paint jobs or wraps.

Additionally, a more upscale interior, with lots of Alcantara and contrast stitching, alongside the tuner’s logo added to the steering wheel and engraved into the headrests, is also available.

    A few tweaks can make it a true luxury Mercedes. The production model is lacking these small details and finishes that make a Mercedes a premium car.
