NEW MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS ALL-TERRAIN: VERSATILITY AND AGILITY IN A STRIKING OUTFIT

Stuttgart. From unpaved tracks to steep, serpentine snow-bound roads, the new E-Class All-Terrain can tackle routes where conventional estates have to give up, thanks to greater ground clearance and 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Rugged styling and flared wheel arches also give it a tough look. The E-Class All-Terrain makes its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show 2016. The first cars will arrive in the ÚK from spring 2017, while pricing and specification will be announced in early 2017.

'No E-Class has ever been as versatile as the All-Terrain. The new model combines a striking look in SÚV style wîth the intelligent space concept of the estate. This is coupled wîth lots of innovative safety features and the multi-award-winning E-Class interior,' said Ola Kallenius, Member of the Daimler management board responsible for Sales and Marketing of 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.'

Thanks to off-road styling elements the All-Terrain has a powerful and robust appearance which also distinguishes it from the classic estate. Dynamism and modern luxury unite to make the All-Terrain an ambassador for the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of the sensuous clarity that defines modern luxury.

An eye-catching feature of the front is the SÚV-style two-fin grille wîth the star integrated in the centre. The distinctive front bumper and lower panelling, electroplated in silver-chrome, also contribute to the robust appearance. The top part of the three-part front bumper is painted in the body colour and the lower part comes in grained black plastic.

At the side, the black wheel arch covers are a distinctive feature that emphasise the car's all-terrain character. This also applies to the black side skirt that features a chrome trip strip. Three exclusive alloy wheel sets in 19- and 20-inch formats wîth higher sidewalls give the vehicle a confident look, greater ground clearance and enhanced comfort on rough roads.

The All-Terrain also features a model-specific three-part bumper at the rear wîth the top part painted in body colour and the lower part in grained black plastic. Further features typical of an SÚV include robust load sill protection and an underbody guard electroplated in silver-chrome.


The interior includes aluminium-carbon look trim that is exclusive to the All-Terrain, stainless steel sports pedals and floor mats wîth All-Terrain lettering. The equipment is based on the AVANTGARDE interior line, while EXCLÚSIVE and designo appointments are optionally available ÚK details are to be confirmed. The new model boasts all the load compartment flexibility of the E-Class estate, such as the rear seat cargo position and a standard 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat back. All E-Class innovations relating to safety, comfort and convenience are available.

The All-Terrain will be launched as an E 220 d 4MATIC (143 kW/194 hp) wîth the newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine. A short time later a variant wîth a six-cylinder diesel engine will follow. Both models come wîth the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.

The All-Terrain has DYNAMIC SELECT as standard. This enables five driving programmes to be selected wîth different engine, transmission, ESP® and §teering characteristics. A special model-specific feature is the All-Terrain driving programme, which offers settings for off-road driving and was derived from the GLE. The even more comfortable suspension configuration and the large wheels wîth higher sidewalls noticeably further increase ride comfort on rough roads compared wîth the E-Class.

Selecting the All-Terrain driving programme wîth the driving programme switch raises the chassis via the standard AIR BODY CONTROL by +20 mm up to a speed of 35 km/h. The thresholds for ESP®, active yaw control and acceleration skid control (ASR) are adjusted accordingly. The All-Terrain driving programme has a special indicator in the vehicle display. Information displayed there includes the §teering angle, the vehicle level (position of the air suspension), the angle of slope and the angle of inclination, the accelerator/brake position and a compass.

Thanks to air suspension three levels from 0 to +35 mm are selectable. Independent of the driving programme the highest level can also be selected manually wîth the level button on the centre console. The E-Class All-Terrain is 29 millimetres higher than the E-Class Estate – 14 mm of which is due to the tyres' larger height/width ratio and 15 mm to the normal driving level of the air suspension. The ground clearance is 121 to 156 mm.
