Despite its wider track, different springs and extra sound insulation, we all know that the Mercedes X-Class pickup shares plenty of bits with the workaday Nissan Navara. The two are even built on the same ladder chassis, with the same 4WD system and same low-range gearboxes.

Merc tried hard to differentiate the two by re-designing both the exterior panels and interior trim, though, and in truth the Germans made a decent job of it. The signature Merc grille works well, and the X is posher than an everyday pickup inside – even if it doesn’t match up to an E- or MLE-Class.

It seems interesting then, that for its modified X-Class, Kahn Design has decided to re-trim the interior and remove the large badging from the front grille.
