Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain Already In For A Refresh, Check Out The 2020 Model

Last month we brought you the first spy shots of the restyled 2020 Mercedes E-Class, which has already begun testing on public roads.

We were actually surprised to see a 2020 E-Class prototype so soon — after all, the fifth generation of Mercedes’ executive model only debuted in the spring of 2016. The extent of the styling changes was equally surprising. The 2020 E-Class Estate prototype featured significant updates to its front and rear end.

Now, Mercedes is hard at work testing those very same upgrades, but for the 2020 E-Class All-Terrain. You may remember that the jacked-up premium wagon only went on sale in Europe in January 2017, meaning that the automaker is preparing to replace a car that is barely two years old.

Of course, the facelifted E-Class All-Terrain won’t launch tomorrow. It’s expected to debut in late 2019 when the current car will be almost three years old. Still, that makes for a surprisingly short life cycle.

Anyway, as with the regular E-Class Estate, the All-Terrain will receive new headlights and taillights, as well as a new grille and a restyled front bumper. The changes are meant to bring the E-Class in line with the brand’s new Sensual Purity design language.

For example, the DRL signature and the grille remind of the latest CLS four-door coupe. As for the front bumper, Mercedes is doing a great job of hiding it from curious onlookers. However, we get the impression that it will feature a more aggressive design than it does at the moment.

In addition to these range-wide updates, the All-Terrain will add rugged-looking details such as plastic cladding, skid plates, and a higher ground clearance.

While it’s a bit too early to know for certain what type of technical upgrades will be featured in the 2020 E-Class, we expect Mercedes to bring it up to date with its newest products. This means new E-Class models should have the brand’s latest powertrains, safety tech, and infotainment software.
