Standard four-wheel drive, additional body kit, increased ground clearance – everything we love.
The new generation Mercedes-Benz C-class station wagon, which debuted this February along with the sedan, will receive a highly passable modification called the All-Terrain. We have known about this since the year before last and periodically watched prototype tests. Today, the spies shared another batch of images taken during tests in hot climates.
Most of the raised “barn” is camouflaged, but you can still see the outlines of the new body kit, which is designed to provide additional protection. Those who have seen the car up close say that the design of the bumpers has been slightly changed.
In general, this five-door should be prepared according to the same recipe as the larger Mercedes-Benz E-class All-Terrain, which appeared back in 2016. Accordingly, all-wheel drive and air suspension will be included in the standard equipment, the ground clearance will be increased, and the All-Terrain setting with the highest ground clearance will be added to the driving mode selection system. Plus a special interior decor. Once on the market, such a model will be able to compete for buyers with the Audi A4 allroad quattro and Volvo V60 Cross Country.
The composition of the motor range should vary depending on the market. In a conventional station wagon, it includes four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. They all feature a 48-volt starter-generator superstructure for fuel economy and short-term boost in performance, with the most powerful option to date being the 313-horsepower C 300 e plug-in hybrid. Meanwhile, Mercedes-AMG is working hard on the “heated” and “charged” modifications, and, judging by the previous pictures of our spies, both will be available in a four-door and a five-door body.
