The upcoming Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain has been previewed ahead of its official debut at the Paris motor show later this month.

Mercedes' planned rival to the Audi A6 Allroad and Volvo V90 Cross Country is expected to go on sale next year, and has already been seen testing. The jacked-up, all-wheel drive estate car features rugged styling, including new front and rear bumper treatments seen in the teaser video below. Spy pictures have also shown it will receive plastic underbody protection and flared wheel arches.

It's thought that the All Terrain will borrow engines from the rest of the E-Class line-up, which currently consists of an entry-level E220d and the more powerful E350d.

The teaser video specifically shows a new driving mode for the All Terrain, which is expected to adjust elements like the throttle, steering and transmission to ease progress away from the tarmac.

Other, less premium options in this market include the Seat Leon XPerience and VW Passat Alltrack.

Our Verdict

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with fine engines and a typically laid-back dynamic character. Not one for the interested driver, but a good advert for being disinterested.

.....another Mercedes-Benz covered in many unnecessary bits of chrome, nailed all over the body. What a dogs dinner!
Should look alright in a travellers camp though I suppose!

I'm sure it won't be too long until BMW follows suit with its next 5 Series estate. If there's one constant in the motoring world, it's the German companies all following each other.
