The 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain debuts as a high-riding, all-wheel-drive estate for customers wanting to do light off-roading like on dirt or gavel but don't want an SUV. It's heading to the United States in 2024. Pricing arrives closer to launch. The public premiere is at the upcoming IAA Mobility event in Munich.
The All-Terrain features a different front grille than the saloon by featuring two bars with an Iridium Silver finish in the middle and a revised lower fascia. The wheel arches feature dark grey cladding. The estate comes standard with 18-inch wheels, but 19- and 20-inch sizes are available as options.

The estate's cargo area holds 615 litres (21.7 cubic feet) of storage space, which can expand to 1,830 litres (64.6 cubic feet) with the rear seats down. In comparison, the E-Class saloon's boot holds 538 litres (19 cubic feet). The All-Terrain comes standard with a power tailgate and a retractable luggage cover.
The table below compares the All-Terrain's exterior dimensions to the saloon:
|E-Class All-Terrain Estate||E-Class Saloon||Difference|
|Length||4,953 mm (195 in)||4,948 mm (194.8 in)||5 mm (0.2 in)|
|Width||1,905 mm (75 in)||1,880 mm (74 in)||25 mm (1 in)|

The All-Terrain comes as the mild-hybrid E 450 4Matic with a turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six engine making 375 bhp from 5,800 to 6,100 rpm and 369 pound-feet of torque. The electric Boost system provides 23 bhp and 151 lb-ft. The estate can reach 60 miles per hour in an estimated 4.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph.
The E-Class All-Terrain comes standard with Mercedes' Airmatic single-chamber air suspension that has continuously adjustable damping. The system maintains a constant ground clearance regardless of the load in the vehicle. The Comfort setting features a 15 mm (0.6-inch) drop at speeds above 75 mph.
The All-Terrain comes with the Mercedes MBUX Superscreen infotainment display like the setup available in the saloon. Like the four-door, a front passenger screen is an option. It gains an Off-Road driving programme that switches the driver and central screens to show a compass, latitude and longitude coordinates, a vehicle angle indicator, and tyre pressures. There's also a "transparent bonnet" function as part of the 360-degree camera for better visibility of the surrounding terrain.
The estate's standard suite of safety tech includes attention assist, active brake assist, and a parking package. The optional Driver Assistance Package adds active steering assist, active lane keeping assist, active speed limit assist, and adaptive cruise control.
