The E-Class Estate's more capable sibling starts at €58,101 in Germany.

If you’re determined not to go with an all-wheel-drive crossover or an SUV but you still need the extra ground clearance and AWD, rugged wagons like the E-Class All-Terrain might just be the perfect solution. Mercedes has opened the order books for its “multitalented vehicle” available for the moment exclusively in the E 220 d 4Matic specification.

It kicks off at €58,101, so it’s about €4,700 more expensive than the regular E 220 d 4Matic Estate upon which it’s based. At the same time, it also costs more than its two main rivals, with the Audi A6 Allroad Quattro priced from €55,800 while the Volvo V90 Cross Country starts at €56,350 in Deutschland.

What do you get for that premium? The All-Terrain sits 29 millimeters (1.1 inches) higher and comes as standard with an air suspension featuring three selectable levels altering the height from 0 to +35 mm (1.3 inches). Depending on driving speed and the nine-speed automatic transmission’s mode, the ground clearance varies between 121 to 156 mm (4.7 to 6.1 inches).

For the extra money you’re paying over the standard model, Mercedes will throw in an All-Terrain transmission mode suitable whenever tackling rough roads. You also get a slightly more rugged exterior with additional plastic body cladding as well as silver front and rear skid plates. On the inside, you’ll be able to tell it apart from the regular E-Class Estate thanks to the new indicator showing a handy compass, air suspension’s position, angle of slope and inclination, steering angle, and the accelerator/brake pedal position.

The E-Class All-Terrain is based on the Avantgarde trim and can be optionally had with optional 20-inch wheels for an extra €714 replacing the standard 19-inch set. A multi-spoke 19-inch set is also available for an additional €238.

Later on, Mercedes will sell the E-Class All-Terrain with a beefier six-cylinder turbodiesel for those in need of more power compared to the 2.0-liter’s 194 horsepower (143 kilowatts) and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters). The E 220 d 4Matic runs to 62 mph (100 kph) in 8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 144 mph (232 kph).

The company with the three-pointed star logo will have the new E-Class Estate-based derivative in showrooms from March.

Available for ordering now: E-Class All-Terrain: Market launch of the multitalented vehicle

Stuttgart. As the most versatile E-Class variant ever made, the All-Terrain model combines a striking SUV-style look with the intelligent space concept of the Estate, along with many innovative safety features plus a multi-award winning interior. The E 220 d 4MATIC All-Terrain1 can be ordered with immediate effect, with prices starting at €58,101.75 2. It will appear in dealer showrooms in March 2017.  

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 in the guise of the E 220 d 4MATIC (143 kW/194 hp) with the newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine and the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. As standard the All-Terrain features DYNAMIC SELECT along with All-Terrain transmission modes for when it comes to heading off the beaten track. The basic price is €58,101.75, which is only around €4700 more than the price of the E 220 d 4MATIC Estate.

Thanks to styling elements with an off-road look the All-Terrain has a powerful and robust appearance which also distinguishes it from the classic estate. The most eye-catching feature of the striking front is the SUV-style twin-louvre grille with a star integrated in the centre. The distinctive front bumper as well as the panelling in underride guard-look also contribute to the robust appearance. In the side view the black wheel arch covers are a distinctive feature that emphasise the all-terrain character. The same applies to the side skirts, which have been retained in the same colour. At the rear, the All-Terrain also boasts a model-specific three-piece bumper.

The special features of the interior, which are exclusive to the All-Terrain as standard, include aluminium trim with a light carbon-grain finish, stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs plus floor mats with All-Terrain lettering.
