The raised C-Class All-Terrain wagon had its formal premiere in August, but it is making its first public presentation now at IAA Mobility. The C-Class All-Terrain wagon does not outperform the new Concept EQG, but it's remarkable how a tiny adjustment in ride height can create such a big aesthetic difference.
The C-Class All-Terrain is only 40 millimeters higher than the standard estate. This type is a C 220 d, which means it has a turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel engine under the hood. It gets Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive technology, but it also gets two additional driving modes that aren't typically found.
As one might imagine, offroad vehicles are designed to handle rough terrain. Offroad+, the second option, includes Downhill Speed Regulation, which keeps the wagon in check if you find yourself on steep terrain.
The C-Class All-Terrain is clearly aimed at the Audi A4 Allroad, providing a little extra capacity for soft-roading consumers who aren't interested in the SUV scene. Unfortunately, Mercedes will not pursue Audi in the United States, where the A4 and A6 Allroad are also available. The C-Class All-Terrain will be offered solely in Europe.
