Mercedes-Benz has lifted its E-Class to new heights.
The new E-Class will be available as a high-riding wagon offered in one specification when it goes on sale in June, 2017.
Priced from $109,900 before on road costs, the Mercedes-Benz E220d All-Terrain undercuts the rival Audi A6 Allroad by about $3000.
Power comes from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that produces 143kW and 400Nm, sending it to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Bigger tyres and higher air suspension raise the rode height of the All-Terrain by 29mm over the regular wagon variant.
The All-Terrain comes with a variety of driving modes, including a dedicated off-road setting that raises the standard air suspension by 20mm at speeds up to 35km/h.
Style-wise Mercedes-Benz has blended an SUV-like front with a more traditional wagon body and rear end, with the front grille and bumper the prime examples of the SUV style.
Inside, the All-terrain comes equipped with the Avantgarde level of trim but also features stainless steel sports pedals and floor mats with All-Terrain lettering.
