This will be Mercedes' answer to the Audi A4 Allroad.
The debut of the brand new 2021 Mercedes S-Class may have stolen the spotlight, but that doesn't mean Mercedes is neglecting other models in its lineup. Now that the new S-Class has debuted, we're waiting for the next-generation C-Class to break cover.
As development of the new Mercedes C-Class continues, our spies have caught the German manufacturer testing a prototype of a new All-Terrain version. This will be the first time the C-Class has been given the All-Terrain treatment. Before you get your hopes up, the new Mercedes C-Class All-Terrain is unlikely to be sold in the US.
In America, the Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain will replace the E-Class wagon for 2021, but the C-Class wagon isn't currently sold in the US, so it's extremely unlikely that the All-Terrain version will be available.
While the new Mercedes C-Class Wagon has been spotted in the wild before, our spies are confident we're looking at the more rugged All Terrain version, which will rival the Audi A4 Allroad and Volvo V60 Cross Country. While the prototype is fully camoflague, plastic flares appear to have been added to the wheel arches and the side sills look wider than the regular C-Class Wagon.
Its raised ride height is another obvious indicator that this isn't an ordinary C-Class Wagon. The camouflage disguises the design details, but we're expecting the bumpers to be tweaked and look more rugged.
Under the hood, the first-ever C-Class All-Terrain will share the same engine options as its standard C-Class sibling and be offered with an all-wheel-drive system as standard. Our spies were unable to capture any photos of the cabin, but the new C-Class will be upgraded with the latest Mercedes MBUX infotainment system and a fully digital instrument cluster. We're expecting the new Mercedes C-Class sedan to debut within the next few months, but the All-Terrain version is unlikely to break cover until the second half of 2021.
