Features include eight-way electrically adjustable and heated driver and front passenger seats, leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and cruise control, leather and microfiber upholstery, leather dashboard with topstitching which also features an aluminum interior trim, among others.

Mercedes says that first deliveries of the new X350d are expected this November, with prices starting from £38,350, excluding VAT.

    The Mercedes is a much-improved vehicle. The ride/handling and refinement levels are superior to the Navara’s. It also looks better.

    Plus the Mercedes-only V6 makes this one of the most powerful trucks in the class, just below the Amarok. You can’t get this engine in the Nissan.
