Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Wagon Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG

First Look: Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain

Despite the relatively niche segment, luxury manufacturers continue to release soft-roading variants of full-sized wagons. Following earlier reveals from Audi and Volvo, Mercedes-Benz just unveiled the dirt-road-ready E-Class All-Terrain ahead of its official debut at this year’s Paris auto show.

Like the Volvo V90 Cross Country and the smaller Audi A4 Allroad, the E-Class All-Terrain is essentially an E-Class wagon prepared for some light off-road duty. Forget any aspirations of conquering Moab; this is best suited to scaling tight unpaved mountain roads.

The All-Terrain serves as the Launchpad for a new 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engine, pushing out 194 hp and a healthy 295 lb-ft of torque. Power is unsurprisingly routed to all four wheels through Mercedes’ new 9G-Tronic nine-speed transmission. Mercedes says a six-cylinder diesel will soon follow.

To prepare the All-Terrain for journeys to mountain homes in the Alps, the wagon incorporates tough plastic trim around the rocker panels, rear bumper, and a modified front bumper valence. Buyers will have the choice of three 19- and 20-inch wheel designs with “higher sidewalls” for handling rockier terrain. Underneath, the All-Terrain is protected with a skid plate to keep the engine safe from hazards. The standard air suspension and larger wheels means the All-Terrain rides 1.1 inches higher than the regular E-Class Wagon.

In addition to the regular Eco, Comfort, and Sport driving modes, the new wagon packs an All-Terrain mode, a system derived from the GLE SUV. Selecting this mode raises the ride height by an impressive 0.8 inches, along with changes made to the traction control, stability control, and transmission.

No word yet on U.S. availability, but Mercedes says the All-Terrain arrives in the U.K. by spring of 2017. Look for the official debut of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain next month at the 2016 Paris auto show.

Just Listed: This 1973 Citroen DS23 Pallas

Hopping straight from Bring a Trailer’s (no doubt) seven-figure sale of a 1988 Porsche 959, we thought this 1973 Citroen DS23 Pallas would serve as the perfect palate cleanser.

This is a car from the crazier era of French motoring, when sophisticated (yet fragile) engineering met spectacular styling. Cars like the Citroen DS were worlds apart from anything emerging from Italy or the U.S. This DS is in well-kept driving condition, free of any major mechanical faults. According to BaT, the car was imported to the U.S. in 2008, and received a mechanical overhaul in 2012 when the current owner purchased it.

Aside from basic maintenance, the DS comes with a brand new air-conditioning system, installed recently at cost of $3,000. Under the front hood chugs a healthy 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with fresh hoses, wires, and other basic components. The engine sends power through a five-speed manual transmission, a powertrain combination that makes the DS good for an impressive 120 mph, according to the auction post.

This is the perfect weekend-driver classic for the unconventional enthusiast. It won’t win any races, claim any awards at a concours, nor shuttle you through the Moab rocklands, but its as strange and alluring as they come.

Head over to Bring a Trailer to place a bid on this 1973 Citroen DS23 Pallas.
