From now on, the X-Class will have a very special representative – Rafał Sonik, who is an acclaimed Polish athlete and entrepreneur. The dual character of the first pickup featuring a star on the hood makes the X-Class an obvious choice for Sonik.
When the X-Class first entered the market in 2017, it was immediately recognized as the top-class fusion of practicality and luxury.
Set on a massive frame, which makes it perfect for cruising through rough terrains, it is also equipped with the features typical of luxury cars. The X-Class offers unique systems for safe and comfortable driving. Furthermore, the interior is customizable, and the styling reminds of SUVs and Mercedes-Benz, which sets it apart from other pickup trucks.
Universal practicality and representative looks are just the features Rafał Sonik has been looking for in his daily car. The X-Class will accompany Sonik during his training before next competitions. Spacious and dependable, the Mercedes truck can haul a small quad or a motorbike.
“For a long time, there hasn’t been any car on the market which would fit the needs of my lifestyle so perfectly. I am an athlete, and my natural environment is off-road. However, I am also a businessman and my car often turns into my office. The X-Class Mercedes-Benz guarantees all key characteristics of this brand: a comfortable ride, stylish design and unquestionable elegance. At the same time, I can venture into the most difficult terrain and enjoy the off-road ride whenever I have an urge to do so”, commented the popular sportsman.
Rafał Sonik is the only Polish competitor to ever win the Dakar Rally in the individual category. He set his foot on the podium three more times during this legendary race. He is also a six-time winner of the FIM World Cup. As a well-known entrepreneur and philanthropist, Sonik actively supports several organizations and charity causes.
Rafał Sonik drives an X 250d 4MATIC POWER, which is a fully equipped version. The vehicle has LED High-Performance front lights, 8-way electrically adjustable seats, and the Keyless Go entry system. The off-road capabilities are strengthened by the optional rear axle differential lock and suspension with raised ground clearance. Moreover, off-road navigation is made easier with a 360° camera, fully integrated with the COMAND Online multimedia system.
