Concern Daimler AG has shown a new version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class station wagon – All-Terrain. The model received a number of improvements with an eye on bad roads.
The novelty is made according to the recipe of the older brother of the E-Class All-Terrain, which entered the market in 2016. The engineers increased the ground clearance by 40 mm (the absolute value is not disclosed, but something should be obtained in the region of 160 mm). The four-link front suspension has slightly larger steering knuckles.
Tires with a higher profile are also used, with wheel rims ranging from 17 to 19 inches. The suspension has been re-tuned for greater comfort on rough terrain.
The All-Terrain version is easily recognizable by the black embossed plastic underbody trim, redesigned radiator grille and reduced chrome.
For the cross-wagon, both the M254 gasoline engine (2.0 liters, 258 hp) and the OM 654 M diesel engine (2.0 liters, 200 hp) are offered.
Both versions are “mild” hybrids with an integrated starter-generator adding up to 20 hp. when overclocked.
The car is always equipped with a nine-speed “automatic” 9G-TRONIC and all-wheel drive 4MATIC, which directs 45% of the traction to the front axle and 55% to the rear. There are two new driving modes: Offroad and Offroad +. The second is for descending the mountain at a fixed speed.
The public debut of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class All-Terrain will take place in September at the Munich Motor Show. The car will be available in Europe this fall.
