Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off its latest member of the E-Class family, the first-ever E-Class All-Terrain model.

Like the recently unveiled Volvo V90 Cross Country and Audi A6 Allroad, the E-Class All-Terrain is essentially an E-Class wagon on stilts with added wheel arch flares, more rugged front and rear bumper and the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

Mercedes has also equipped the All-Terrain with the company’s Air Body Control multi-chamber air suspension system and up to 35mm in extra ride height. With the suspension set at its highest setting, the All-Terrain offers up to 156mm of ground clearance.

According to Mercedes, the car’s AWD system has been specially retuned to work with the higher-profile tyred 19-inch alloy wheels to improve off-road capabilities as well as ride comfort on almost any sort of roads.

The car’s Dynamic Select system gains an additional ‘All-Terrain’ mode which primes the vehicle for off-road use by adjusting the car’s Electronic Stability Control, Active Yaw Control and lifting the air suspension.

At launch, the E-Class All-Terrain will be offered with just a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine generating 140kW and 400Nm of torque. It is matched with the 9-speed 9G-Tronic auto that enables the high-riding E-Class to hit 100km/h from a standstill in 8.0 seconds flat, en route to a top speed of 230km/h. The E220 d 4Matic All-Terrain will be joined by a six-cylinder E350 d in late 2017.
