Tough new E-Class All-Terrain unveiled by Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz has pulled the covers off its new E-Class All-Terrain, the German manufacturer’s most rugged estate car yet.

It is intended to be a more versatile alternative to the standard E-Class estate, utilising a raised ride-height and all-wheel drive to achieve this. To improve its off-road credentials from an aesthetic point of view, it has been fitted with flared wheel arches and dark plastic surrounds.

Buyers will be able to specify either 19-or 20-inch wheels, both of which help the E-Class All-Terrain strike a balance between being a premium estate car and sturdy off-roader.

Ola Kallenius, member of the Daimler management board responsible for sales and marketing of Mercedes-Benz Cars, commented: “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.

“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.”

A four-cylinder diesel engine producing 190bhp and 400Nm of torque power the E-Class All-Terrain. Coupled with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, it shifts the car from 0-62mph in eight seconds. Emissions are a respectable 137g of CO2 per kilometer.

Adjustable air-suspension allows the driver to choose from three different ride heights, ranging from 0mm to 35mm. This makes for a ground clearance of between 121mm and 156mm.

Pricing and specifications for the E-Class All-Terrain will be announced towards the start of next year.
