Car and Driver: New Mercedes E-class All Terrain Wagon Ventures (Not Far) Off Road


Recommended Posts

Mercedes-Benz E-class All-Terrain


Mercedes-Benz is about to launch a crossover-tinged version of the 2017 E-class station wagon. Modeled after the Audi Allroad Quattro, the new derivative will be called All Terrain.



Set to make its debut at the Paris auto show this fall, the E-class All Terrain is differentiated from the regular E-class wagon by its greater ride height, unpainted cladding around the wheel arches and on the lower body, as well as redesigned front and rear bumpers. A 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system will be standard, and the vehicle will be offered with several gasoline and diesel engines. No AMG derivatives are planned.


Mercedes-Benz says that the vehicle will go relatively far off the road—but there won’t be any special equipment beyond the higher ground clearance and off-road software. We also hear that the interior will remain largely unchanged; Mercedes is not planning specific color-and-trim options to complement the All Terrain’s more-rugged exterior design.


Somewhat surprisingly, there are no current plans to bring the E-class All Terrain to the U.S. For now, Mercedes-Benz is set to send us the 2017 E400 station wagon—and, we expect, an AMG version as well. But off-road-themed wagons have proven popular here, most notably the Subaru Outback and the Volvo Cross Country, so it could be that in the future the All Terrain will also find its way to our shores.
