MERCEDES-BENZ is to introduce a go-anywhere version of the E-Class estate which can tackle routes where conventional cars have to give up.

The new E-Class All-Terrain comes with greater ground clearance and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

It also gets rugged styling and flared wheel arches to create a a tough look.

The newcomer will arrive in the UK early next year.

With air suspension three ride settings from 0 to +35mm are selectable. Independent of the driving programme the highest level can also be selected manually.

The E-Class All-Terrain is 29 millimetres higher than the E-Class Estate - 14mm of which is due to the tyres' larger height/width ratio and 15mm to the normal driving level of the air suspension. The ground clearance is 121 to 156mm.

The All-Terrain driving programme has a special indicator in the vehicle display.

Information displayed there includes the steering angle, the vehicle level, the angle of slope and the angle of inclination, the accelerator/brake position and a compass.

At launch the All-Terrain will be kitted out with an E 220 d 4MATIC 194bhp newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine.

A short time later a variant with a six-cylinder diesel engine will follow. Both models come with the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.

A feature of the front is the SUV-style two-fin grille with the star integrated in the centre. A new look front bumper and lower panelling, electroplated in silver-chrome, also contribute to the robust appearance.

The interior includes aluminium-carbon effect trim that is exclusive to the All-Terrain model as well as stainless steel sports pedals and floor mats with All-Terrain lettering.
