The All Terrain is a high-riding version of the Mercedes E-Class Estate, and will rival the Volvo V90 Cross Country, and the Audi A6 Allroad.
The exterior is more rugged than the standard E-Class, with a two-tone front and rear bumper, SUV-style grille, wheel arch cladding, roof rails, and pumped up sills underneath the doors. There’s 19-inch wheels as standard (with 20-inch available), and the tyres have higher side walls than the E-Class, which Mercedes claims enhances traction and provides additional ride comfort.
The All Terrain features a revised version of the E-Class optional air suspension. The driver can raise the ride height from the standard 121mm ground clearance (29mm higher than the E-Class Estate), through to 141mm, and up to 156mm at the highest point.
There will be five driving mode options available, including an All Terrain mode that will be unique to the model and help achieve maximum off-road ability, by altering the acceleration skid control, suspension, ground clearance, electronic stability programme, and active yaw control.
