Mercedes-Benz is to launch a 4WD 'All-Terrain' edition E-Class.
Based on the E-Class estate, the new All-Terrain model offers improved ground clearance, all-wheel drive and unique body design.
“No E-Class has ever been as versatile as the All-Terrain. The new model combines a striking look in SUV style with the intelligent space concept of the estate. This is coupled with lots of innovative safety features and the multi-award-winning E-Class interior,” said Ola Källenius, sales and marketing at Mercedes Benz Cars.
“With 4MATIC all-wheel drive as a standard feature and increased ground clearance thanks to the AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber air suspension, the All-Terrain is a flexible all-rounder – for unpaved roads, family and leisure time.”
The All-Terrain will be launched as an E220d 4matic, offering 194 hp with the newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine. A short time later a variant with a six-cylinder diesel engine will follow. Both models come with the new 9G-tronic nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.
CO2 emissions start from 137g/km.
The first cars will arrive in the UK from spring 2017, while pricing and specification will be announced in early 2017.
