Mercedes' Matthias Luhrs recently confirmed the company is considering a competitor to the Audi A4 and A6 Allroad, so Top Speed has created a rendering of what a 2018 E-Class Allroad could look like.

While the design is highly speculative, the model features classic Allroad styling cues including plastic fender flares, rugged side skirts and additional chrome trim.  The production model would also have an increased ride height and large wheels with meaty tires.

The resulting model doesn't look too bad but Mercedes has cautioned the popularity of crossover-inspired wagons market dependent so we might not see an Allroad competitor at all.
