Test drive the official vehicle partner of HOME Tour: The Mercedes-Benz X-Class

10 October 2019

HOME Tour 2019 has teamed up with The Mercedes-Benz X-Class to visit architecturally designed houses around the country. Discover how you can test drive one today

We’re delighted to welcome The Mercedes-Benz X-Class to the fold on HOME Tour 2019, which kicked off in Wellington in September. Driven by design, the X-Class is our official vehicle partner on all four tours this year.

In each centre, the HOME team will make their way to tour houses in the X-Class and, while in Central Otago, attendees can experience the vehicle for themselves as they’re driven up a private driveway to visit one of the standout homes. In Christchurch and Auckland, the car will be available to test drive for a limited number of HOME Tour attendees. But you can book your own test drive today by clicking this test drive button:

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class is a comfortable cross between a utility vehicle and an SUV. Having driven it, we can attest that the ride is smooth and powerful. There’s plenty of legroom in the cab and a very large tray behind.

Designed for both town and country, this all-terrain vehicle is a great match for the South Island landscape, and we’re looking forward to driving it in Central Otago. But it’s equally comfortable around town, and at home on narrow city streets – helped by the 360-degree camera, which switches on automatically when reverse gear is engaged, and provides a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle on the central display.

The Mercedes-Benz X-Class looked very smart pulled up outside the architecturally designed houses on our Wellington tour. Keep an eye out for us in the South Island in October, and Auckland in November.
