Mercedes-Benz Gives The C-Class Estate A High-Riding Off-Road-Ready Makeover

Here in the US, crossovers are hotter than ever right now; however, elsewhere in the world, they’re not quite so practical. With this in mind, Mercedes-Benz has just announced an upcoming C-Class model that promises to take the wagon’s potential to new heights.

Quite literally, in fact. It’s called the C-Class All-Terrain, and, as you’d expect, it’s an estate that’s been designed for improved off-road ability. As such, it now rides 40mm (1.57in) higher than the standard vehicle, also gaining optional 19″ wheels, larger steering knuckles, as well as some multi-link suspension mounted at the rear axle. What’s more, it features 4MATIC all-wheel drive and two off-road driving modes (including downhill speed regulation) that allow users to adjust their traction based on the size of the terrain. Under the hood, power arrives from either a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel, with both options benefitting from an integrated second-generation starter-generator (ISG). Topped off with some intelligent off-road-specific lighting, a set of protective plastic moldings, and an infotainment screen for viewing things like incline, decline, and steering angle, this is one softroader that’s a true cut above the rest. Though it’s not coming stateside, you can learn more below.
