Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the slightly more rugged E-Class All-Terrain
How can automakers make wagons more attractive? Well since SUVs are now more popular, why not make the conventional wagon look a bit more rugged with a slightly higher ride height? Volvo and Subaru have done it for years and now Mercedes-Benz is throwing its hat in the ring with the E-Class All-Terrain.
The 2018 E-Class All-Terrain starts with the standard E-Class wagon, but then beefs things up a bit with plastic body cladding, a unique front grille and lower fascia and higher ground clearance. The Air Body Control System which can raise the E-Class All-Terrain’s ground clearance to 6.14 inches.
When the E-Class All-Terrain goes on sale in Europe it will be powered by a 194 horsepower four-cylinder diesel engine, while a six-cylinder diesel engine will follow. Both models come with the new 9G‑TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive system standard.
The E-Class All-Terrain will go on sale in Europe in the spring of 2017 and as of right now there are no plans to sell it in the U.S.
