The Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain is a bit of an oddball. Like the Audi A6 Allroad and the Volvo V90 Cross Country, the E-Class All-Terrain is a traditional estate car that’s been sprinkled with an SUV-flavoured garnish.
While it does sit a little higher than a regular E-Class Estate, you’ll have to do without the commanding driving position that SUV drivers love so much. What you do get is off-roader-inspired styling flourishes, four-wheel drive and adjustable height air suspension as standard.
The range couldn’t be simpler, either. There’s one engine – a 3.0-litre V6 diesel badged as the E 350d – and one trim level. The options list is slimmed down too.
Read on for our thoughts on how the E-Class All-Terrain drives, what the interior’s like, how practical it is and, ultimately, whether we think you should buy one.
