The so-called “soft-roader” car class is a growing one, and we have seen the likes of Audi and Volvo make a dent in the segment with the Allroad and Cross Country respectively. Mercedes appear to want in on the market, though, as it will be unveiling the E-Class All Terrain at the Paris Motor Show.
The All Terrain name is for all of Mercedes-Benz’s soft-roaders, and reports suggest that the first such vehicle will be based on the E-Class Wagon. Moreover, it won’t be too long before it makes its first appearance, as Mercedes have just confirmed that the E-Class All Terrain will be launched at the Paris Motor Show later this month.
Fortunately for those curious as to how this new soft-roader looks like, there have been some sightings of the vehicle ahead of Paris.
Photos of E-Class All Terrain mules suggest that the new vehicle will be taller regarding ride height than the standard E-Class, and would come with other new wrinkles such as wider wheel arches. It is also safe to assume that all-wheel drive will be a standard feature on the upcoming soft-roader.
Other information on the Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain has yet to emerge, and it’s not sure when the vehicle will be available in North America following its unveiling at the Paris Motor Show.
But we do know that Mercedes will be keeping busy at the annual expo, unveiling electrified variants of the Smart line, a new AMG GT Roadster, and an electric concept vehicle.
The Paris Motor Show will become accessible to media outlets on September 29.
