All of its 190 kW and a peak torque of 550 Nm will be dominating the 4x4 track at the show, reigning supreme as the most powerful double cab in South Africa.

The X-Class - the first double cab from a premium manufacturer - convincingly combines the versatility of a double-cab with the luxury of a passenger car. The X-Class is robust with exceptional load capacity and off-road capability, yet it is also aesthetically pleasing, dynamic to drive, comfortable and safe. These traits make it the discerning farmer’s vehicle of choice, both on and off the beaten track.

Attendees will witness how it continues where its predecessor left off by embodying attributes that have made it so successful: flexibility, robustness and being economical, traits that are particularly top of mind for the agricultural sector.

The Sprinter offers a number of applications for countless industries, including the agricultural sector.It is available in a number of variants – depending on body length, payload, cargo space, roof heights and equipment options. The variety of seating configurations offered also makes it easily the most versatile large van in the country, ready to service the farming community. Maximum cargo volume is up to 15.5 m3, with a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of up to 5.5 tonnes.

The versatile Vito is also on display at NAMPO, offering farmers tangible external strengths, maximum benefits and low cost of ownership, a topic that is always a significant factor in the competitive agricultural sector.

For hardworking farmers and their families, the V-Class combines room for up to eight people and exemplary functionality with high-class appeal, comfort, efficient driving pleasure and safety that distinguish automobiles bearing the three-pointed star. This makes the Mercedes, among MPVs, the perfect vehicle for those in the agricultural sector who appreciate boundless space but do not want to sacrifice style and comfort.
