Most luxury manufacturers today continue to unveil variants of full-sized wagons in the market. Following the earlier release of new models from Volvo and Audi, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the all new E-Class All-Terrain ahead its official launch at the Paris auto show this year.
Like the V90 Cross Country of Volvo and the A4 Allroad of Audi, E-Class All-Terrain is an E-Class wagon ready for some light duty on the road. Forget about the aspirations to conquer Moab, it’s best to scale tight unpaved mountain roads.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain is a launchpad for the latest 2.0L turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder engine, pushing out a total of 194 horsepower and 295 lb ft of torque. Its power is routed unsurprisingly to all 4 wheels through the new 9G-Tronic 9 speed transmission of Mercedes-Benz. According to the car manufacturer, 6-cylinder diesel will follow soon.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain is equipped with an adjustable air suspension, making one’s ride fairly composed and smooth, even over mild terrain. The wheels, both nineteen and twenty inch options, have tires with bigger sidewalls. This will help smooth out the right and enhance ground clearance.
Like its competition, Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain comes with tons of plastic cladding on the vehicle’s rear, front, and sides. This offers the vehicle a rugged look, even if some people are not sure about how much extra protection it can offer. But, the standard E-Class Wagon must be a lot capable for many shoppers.
When it comes to its interior, everything is well-appointed and handsome. Consumers will see tons of leather and nice wood. Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain also keeps rear-facing third row.
Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain is actually set to debut at Paris auto show and is said to be available for the public next year. However, it is still unclear if this vehicle will come to the US.
