New Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain Revealed, Rivals Volvo V90 Cross Country

After a short teaser video today, Mercedes revealed the first information on the newest member of the E-Class family, the All-Terrain model.

Set to challenge models like the Audi A6 Allroad and the also freshly revealed Volvo V90 Cross Country, the new E-Class All-Terrain is basically a lifted version of the wagon bodystyle with flared wheel arches, a different front grille with two fins and of course the company’s 4Matic AWD system fitted as standard.

The new E-Class All-Terrain also comes with Mercedes’ Air Body Control multi-chamber air suspension and up to 35mm increase in ride height. This means that the rugged version of the E-Class Estate can offer up to 156mm of ground clearance, when the suspension is set at its highest setting.

“No E-Class has ever been as versatile as the All‑Terrain. The new model combines a striking look in SUV style with the intelligent space concept of the estate. This is coupled with lots of innovative safety features and the multi-award-winning E‑Class interior”, says Ola Källenius, Member of the Daimler management board responsible for Sales and Marketing of Mercedes Benz Cars.

“With 4MATIC all‑wheel drive as a standard feature and increased ground clearance thanks to the AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber air suspension the All‑Terrain is a flexible all‑rounder – for unpaved roads, family and leisure time.”

The company has retuned their AWD system specifically for the All-Terrain while the 19-inch alloy wheels are dressed with higher-sided tires to improve the off-road capabilities and the ride comfort on any sort of roads.

An ‘All-Terrain’ mode has been added to the Dynamic Select, bringing the total of available driving modes up to five. The new off-road setting primes the whole car for off-road use, adjusting the ESP, Active Yaw Control and ASC and lifting the suspension.

Mercedes will initially offer the new E-Class All Terrain with only one engine, a 2.0-litre diesel with 191hp and 295lb ft of peak torque paired to the nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox. 0-62mph comes in 8 seconds flat, with a top speed of 144mph. Mercedes reckons it will return a combined 55.4mpg UK while CO2 emissions are rated at 137g/km. The E 220 d 4Matic All Terrain will be joined by a six-cylinder E350d model later in 2017.

The new Mercedes E-Class All Terrain is set to make its first public appearance at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
