Mercedes has introduced a new variant within the E-Class family, combining the renowned luxury of the E-Class badge with enhanced all-terrain capabilities.

The E-Class All-Terrain lineup comprises three models:

Mercedes E 220 d 4MATIC
Mercedes E 450 4MATIC
Mercedes Plug-in Hybrid E 300 de 4MATIC
Among these, the E450 4MATIC boasts the highest power output (280 kW/500 Nm) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds. The E 300 de offers an impressive all-electric range of 85 to 102 km and shares the same powertrain architecture as the E 220 d 4MATIC, with a combustion engine output of 145 kW/440 Nm.

Setting the E-Class All-Terrain apart from the standard E-Class Estate are a range of features designed to enhance performance in off-road environments. This includes Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system and AIRMATIC air suspension. The ground clearance of the All-Terrain model has been increased, providing up to 48 mm more height than the standard Estate. Both the exterior and interior feature the AVANTGARDE equipment package.

Additional features for off-road exploration include a dedicated off-road driving program, an “off-road” screen, and a 360-degree camera offering comprehensive views around and beneath the vehicle. Visual distinctions encompass a unique bumper, high-gloss front and rear protective guards, a matte dark grey radiator grille, and wheel claddings. Inside, the cabin offers a 12.3-inch driver display, a 14.4-inch central display, heated seats for the driver and front passenger, and electric folding second-row seats.

While the E-Class sedan is available in South Africa, the practical wagon variant, including the raised All-Terrain version, will not be part of the local lineup.
