Ahead of Paris Motor show next week, Mercedes-Benz has revealed details and pictures of the rugged version of E-Class Estate model, to rival the Audi A6 Allroad and recently revealed Volvo V90 Cross Country.
The E-Class All-Terrain is essentially the E-Class Estate version but is made capable of going in any kind of roads, or even no roads. The All-Terrain E-Class comes standard with Mercedes’ 4Matic AWD system and Air Body Control multi-chamber air suspension. When the suspension is set at its highest, it gives 35 mm increase in ride height which takes the ground clearance of the rugged version of the E-Class Estate up to 156mm.
Mercedes has retuned their AWD system for the All-Terrain Estate, also the 19-inch alloys comes with higher-sided tyres to provide better off-road capabilities. The All-Terrain version gets 5th driving mode ‘All-Terrain’ that, as the name suggest, sets the vehicle for the off-road conditions adjusting the ESP, Active Yaw Control and ride height.
The new E-Class All Terrain will initially get only a 2.0-litre diesel engine with output of 191 bhp power and 400Nm of peak torque, mated to the 9-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox. Claimed 0-100 kmph time is 8 seconds with the top speed of about 232 kmph.
