what we already know

At Mercedes, the offer of the new C-Class is expanded with the arrival of a new adventurer variant called All-Terrain. Here is what we already know before its presentation at the Munich Motor Show 2021!

the Munich Motor Show, coming soon ! Since the September 7th, the Bavarian trade fair will open its doors with its share of novelties.

On the side of the Germans, who will logically be widely represented, it is at Mercedes that the program promises to be busy. We will find in particular the new electric sedan EQE, an electric 7-seater SUV called EQB, a concept car Electric SUV, a AMG GT Coupe 4 plug-in hybrid doors, one ClassS shielded or even the Classe C All Terrain.

This adventurous variant of break Classe C is therefore more ” off road ” than ever. A first for the C-Class range.

A raised all-terrain station wagon with all-wheel drive

The principle is simple, it is quite simply the version break, revisited in an all-terrain version. At Mercedes, it’s the appellation « All Terrain » which takes precedence: the star brand had already shown us an E-Class under the same name five years earlier, in 2016.

Style wise, it’s the same idea: we take the break Classe C and it is adorned with several elements of style of an adventurer. We thus notice several plastic protections of raw appearance, for the wheel arches, the sills as well as the shields. On the rear face, this plastic rises to the trunk threshold, which provides additional protection.

At the front, we find a grille with a pierced central bar that we find on all SUV of the brand

.

On the practical side, the ground clearance is relieved of 40 mm to complete the adventurer side. On the other hand, once on board, nothing changes compared to the base station wagon.

Off-road driving modes at work

The Classe C All-Terrain So wants to be an adventurer in terms of its stylistic attributes as well as its technical characteristics. It is equipped as standard with a all-wheel drive as well as two additional driving modes Offroad and Offroad+ allowing to take steep paths.

the first mode is designed for slightly uneven terrain, such as dirt roads, gravel or sand. The second is coupled with a mode DSR for Downhill Speed Regulation, recommended for the most difficult terrain. It can also tow up to 1 800 kg.

Gasoline and diesel engines available

Regarding the engines, there are two 4 cylinders featuring micro-hybridization which are available in gasoline and diesel, offering respectively 204 and 200 horses. They are coupled to a 9-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of prices, knowing that the sedan as well as the station wagon are not really cheap (around € 50,000), we can expect the All-Terrain variant to be around the 55 000 €, see a little more depending on the configurations.

To observe this high-end adventurer, meet in September at Munich Motor Show 2021!
