Mercedes-Benz already has a widely spread portfolio but it doesn’t stop them from bringing in new varieties in the country. Entering an all-new segment, the German luxury car maker has launched the E-Class All-Terrain in India today with the price tag of ₹ 75 Lakh (ex-showroom). This is the first Estate car from Mercedes in the Indian market.
The E-Class 220d All-Terrain packs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 194 hp of power and 400Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission that transfers the power to all four wheels via 4MATIC system. The E-Class All-Terrain will be BS VI compliant and can also run on BS IV fuel.
As the Estate is made to deal with ‘All terrains’, it has been equipped with a special model-specific feature, All-Terrain transmission mode, that is inspired from the Mercedes-Benz GLE range which offers off-road drive settings. To further increase ride comfort on rough surfaces, it comes with comfortable AIRBODY Control suspension configuration and large wheels with higher sidewalls.
Being a part of the E-Class family, the All-Terrain also gets the same luxurious cabin at the front with the Comand infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control. Because of the stretched rear end, it has a massive 640 liters of boot space which can be expanded to 1,820 liters by folding the rear seats.
At the launch, Mr Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “The Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain has a powerful, unique appearance coupled with the go-anywhere capability which differentiates All-Terrain from a classic estate. It has the elegance and luxury of an E-Class combined with the practicality and versatility of an SUV”
He further added, “Our strategy for the Indian market of launching more and more products from our global portfolio is very well received by our discerning customers. The E-Class has been one of our most successful products for the Indian market and we are positive of the market response for the E-Class All-Terrain as well. With this launch, we now have an array of E-Class variants from our global portfolio now available in India.”
This is the second launch for Mercedes-Benz in India this month after the recent launch of the new C-Class last week. The company will also be launching the new G63 AMG in India on October 5.
