Who said cars were dead? In one of the more surprising moves I’ve seen recently, Mercedes-Benz decided to launch an “all-terrain” version of the E-Class literally called the E450 All-Terrain. It is the standard E-Class wagon with some bizarre black body cladding along with a 29mm higher ride height thanks to the Air Body Control air suspension and standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Why did Mercedes bring this to the US? Well, to cut into Audi A6 Allroad and Volvo V90 Cross Country sales, of course.
If you are looking for pure utility without buying an SUV or crossover, here you go.
