2017 E-Class All-Terrain revealed

Over the past few years, many people who traditionally bought large estate cars have deserted the segment in favour of crossovers and SUVs. In an effort to entice some of them back, Mercedes-Benz has launched the E-Class All-Terrain.

This new arrival is clearly going to compete against the Audi A6 Allroad Quattro for sales. It follows a very similar formula, too: take a regular estate, add some strategically-placed protective bodywork cladding, raise the ride height and fit an all-wheel drive system.

Initially, the E-Class All-Terrain is being produced in E 220 d 4Matic guise only. That means power comes from a 1,950 cc, four-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine which delivers 191 bhp (143 kW / 194 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb/ft) of torque via a nine-speed automatic transmission. For anybody requiring more output, a six-cylinder diesel alternative is due later.

UK prices and final specifications for the E-Class All-Terrain will be announced early next year. The first customer deliveries are then expected to begin in the spring.
