Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain official photos, in Monaco the station wagon focuses on 4×4

Among the novelties expected at the Munich Motor Show is the 4-wheel drive version destined to arrive in dealerships in 2022 to strengthen the station wagon segment, with much anticipation from the Italian market.

After the teaser of the past few weeks, Mercedes has released the official photos of the C-Class All-Terrain, which will be officially presented on September 6 at the Munich Motor Show. An expected and particularly important model for two reasons above all: the first is the confirmation that station wagons remain a crucial segment for the premium market; secondly, because it has to challenge the competition of the Audi A4 Allroad, which has been on the market for many years in the various generations.


The all-wheel drive station wagon with crossover look is a segment that appeals, especially to those who prefer the “low” driving of traditional cars to the grandeur of SUVs. In Stuttgart they must have smelled the air, and above all they must have understood the pressing suggestions from Mercedes-Benz Italia – the branch that operates in our country – to combine the E-Class All-Terrain with a similar version of the younger sister CE Class as the best. occasion of the Iaa – the Munich auto show that will open on 6 September – to unveil the new Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain? Dirk Fetzer – head of the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class ranges – had mentioned the possibility of having a raised and all-wheel drive version of the C-Class during a virtual round table in conjunction with the launch of the new Stuttgart media last April. Fetzer had in fact made it official – “The All Terrain will come soon”, his words – without setting a debut date. Today we know that we will see it in Monaco, while in the Mercedes showrooms it will arrive during 2002.


Like the E-Class All-Terrain, the C-Class All-Terrain also has greater ground clearance to be able to tackle rough terrain and protective coatings on the bumpers, sills and wheel arches, which – logically – are larger in size. Of course, the 4Matic all-wheel drive system is standard, allowing the German compact a mobility that certainly cannot be compared to an off-road vehicle, but which is able to meet the needs of those who often face dirt, rain or snow. In normal road conditions, the car mainly sends traction to the rear wheels, but if it detects skidding it can quickly transfer torque to the front wheels. To be checked whether the air suspension will be present on the C-Class All-Terrain, available on the normal version exclusively on the rear axle of the plug-in models.

Latest generation Mbux

Certainly, as for the rest of the German compact range, 9G-Tronic automatic transmission with nine speeds as standard, while on the engine front Mercedes could opt either for exclusively diesel engines (as for the E-Class All-Terrain) or could use the same engines as the normal C-Class, all equipped with Mercedes’ Eq Boost lightweight hybrid technology. At the moment no news of plug-in hybrid variants. The cockpit of the All-Terrain version should not differ from that of the other C-Class, with the latest generation Mbux infotainment that combines an 11.9-inch central touch screen with a 12.3-inch digital dashboard and includes the camera 360-degree exterior and the “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant. What, on the other hand, could change is the luggage compartment capacity: in the conventional C station wagon it has a capacity of 490 liters – expandable to 1,510 by reclining the rear seats – but in the case of the All-Terrain it could be significantly reduced by the presence of all-wheel drive.
