Mercedes-Benz E-class dons hiking boots ahead of Paris

21.09.2016

Hot on the heels of the recently launched Volvo V90 Cross Country, Mercedes-Benz has joined the off-inspired estate segment with the new E-Class All-Terrain.

Unveiled before its official debut at next week's Paris Motor Show, the All-Terrain sits 29 mm higher off the ground than a standard E-class Estate, and features a subtly revised front and rear bumpers, off-road body cladding, choice of 19 or 20-inch alloy wheels, and standard AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension that allows for a height increase of up to 35 mm.

Fitted as standard with Mercedes' five-mode Dynamic Select system and 4Matic all-wheel-drive, the E-class All-Terrain is powered by the same 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine used in the recently refreshed E220d, which produces 143 kW and 400 N.m of torque. A six-cylinder oil burner, mostly likely the 3.0-litre 190 kW / 620 N.m unit serving in the E350d, will became available later with a 9G-Tronic box standard on both.

It currently remains unknown whether the E-class All-Terrain will be earmarked for South Africa once sales commence after Paris.
