2019 Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain

2019 Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain

So, Australia gets the latest Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain – a station wagon with a difference.  Running very much in the same vein as a flagship Subaru Outback and Volvo V90 Cross Country, the new Merc is certainly comfortable and luxurious to boot.

Air suspension, larger wheels and rugged additions to protect both underneath and around the car are ways which set the E-Class All Terrain estate apart from a standard E-Class wagon.  The E-Class All Terrain gets adjustable air suspension which means that you can raise the ride height for light off-road work and then reset it to a low, on-road position as you get back out on the tarmac.  4MATIC AWD also delivers great traction for when you head across a muddy field, explore down a forest track or punch through the long sweeping bends on a country road in the wet.

Yes, this is a luxury All Terrain wagon with loads of comfortable luxury and modern infotainment to pamper you on any kind of journey.  Not only is this a very handy wagon to cart the dog to the river, carry kids to school, pick up the groceries or head off to the beach, but it has a wider appeal in that you scrub up well when you arrive to the board room meeting in a car like this Merc.  It’s hard to go wrong in a kind of car like this, particularly when you want a vehicle to be the best for two worlds – recreation and fun in the weekend, then set duties and tasks during the week.

Under the bonnet of the 2019 Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain is an E220d engine that also shoves the E-Class sedan along quite smartly.  So it’s a turbo diesel that has 2.0-litre capacity and four cylinders for the job.  Boasting 145 kW of peak power along with 400 Nm of torque, this engine is quite adequate enough for offering sprightly performance when you need it.  It also remains very fuel efficient and low on emissions.

If you like a smooth drive, then the new Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain will give you just that.  The ride comfort is exceptionally nice with the air suspension soaking the undulations up extremely well.  Comfort mode will be the setting for those who delight in a floaty, serene ride.  Sportier driving modes are also available.  But you also get the seamless nine-speed automatic gear changes.  Shifting effortlessly through the gears, the auto keeps the meaty power band right in the zone all the time, so there is efficient power on tap instantly without any detectable turbo lag.

Interior design is crisp and clean looking, with elegant dash lines and simple easy to use switchgear.  There are buttons and a touchscreen for controlling a lot of the technology, but you also get Voice Control as well.  Cruise control, a powered tailgate, a rear-view camera, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a panoramic sunroof are all standard Mercedes Benz E-Class All-Terrain items.

Seat room in the front row is capacious, and the driver gets full adjustability of their seat and steering column.  Rear seat passengers also enjoy lovely, comfortable seating and good levels of head and leg space.  Three-zone climate control delivers the goods when it comes to cooling or warming the cabin up as necessary.

Out the back, the powered tailgate lifts up to reveal a large loading area and plenty of cargo space, 670-litres to be exact when the rear seats are in place.  These, of course, can be folded flat, giving way to a tremendous amount of cargo space.  Under the boot floor is a useful storage compartment where you can store all sorts of items that need not be ready-to-hand all the time.  Things like a picnic rug, or tools could easily be tucked away in here.

What you get in the new Mercedes Benz E-Class All Terrain is a truly luxurious Estate.  Volvo’s V90 Cross Country might be the benchmark, however – with its bigger torque (480 Nm), longer luxury item list and more prominent Cross Over looks.  The choice is yours!
