While the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain might be what some would consider “rugged”, odds are nobody has looked at it and thought that it was particularly sporty.
Brabus of course are in the business of changing such perceptions, using both visual cues as well as their PowerXtra D3 kit, which can make even this frugal E 220d version a little more capable in a straight line thanks to an additional 20 kW (27 PS) and 50 more Nm (36.8 lb-ft) of torque.
This particular D3 All-Terrain is actually for sale, with just 3,000 km (1,864 miles) on the clock. The price is €68,900 ($82,494), which is a little over €10,000 ($12,000) more than what you would spend on a stock E 220d 4MATIC All-Terrain in Germany.
The latter is available with 194 PS (191 HP) straight out of the factory, and will do 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8 seconds flat. While Brabus hasn’t disclosed their 0-100 time for the D3 All-Terrain, we do know that the car now has 222 PS (219 HP). So presumably, it should be quicker, even though not by much.
Aside from the power increase, spending just under €70,000 on this car will land you standard equipment such as the Obsidian Black exterior, black leather upholstery, Active Parking Assistant, electrically-adjustable front seats, Active Brake Assistant, the 9G-Tronic transmission, Air Body Control, Trailer coupling with ESP, Thermatic climate control, LED lights, heated front seats, ambient lighting, carbon and aluminum trim and more.
The German tuner also added their own Airmatic Sports Unit, Monoblock Y alloys measuring 21 inches, as well as multiple logos throughout.
