    Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain vs Volvo V90 Cross Country

    Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the E-Class All-Terrain 220d at the Auto Expo 2018. The German automaker decided to go down the same lane as Volvo, after the latter introduced the V90 Cross Country last year.

    The E-Class All-Terrain is essentially aimed at those customers who want the practicality of a station wagon combined with the luxury of an E-Class. The icing on the cake has to be its off-road capability. The All-Terrain will pretty much take on the likes of the Volvo V90 Cross Country, which is its only rival at the moment.


    Since looks play an important role in this premium segment, we noticed that both vehicles have unique design cues which make them stand out, and these are mainly due to the wagon design. The All-Terrain benefits from the same front fascia of the E-Class albeit with rugged designs on the lower bumper and cladding. But the rear design stands out when compared to the Volvo since the quarter glass angles downwards which creates a sweeping roofline that looks sporty. The Volvo V90 Cross Country, on the other hand, sports a nose that’s also similar to its sibling, the S90. That is, of course, barring the restyled lower bumper accents and cladding too. The rear of the V90 is, however, characterised by a less sweeping roofline thanks to the quarter glass being raked upwards.

    Interior and features

    Since both our contenders are luxury offerings, their interiors are distinctly lavish. However, unlike the regular German styling that we’ve come to expect of the Merc, the Volvo stands out thanks to the Scandinavian touch. Plus, fewer buttons, massive upright screen and clean lines impart a more sophisticated feel. Although both wagons are loaded to the brim, the Volvo clearly shows-off with the long list of safety functions that gives it a clear edge over the Merc. 

    Engine and gearbox

    The E-Class All-Terrain will be powered by the 2.0-litre drivetrain that has an output of 192bhp/400Nm, with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Under the hood of the V90 Cross Country is a 2.0-litre engine that makes 235bhp and 480Nm of torque. It uses an eight-speed automatic transmission to lay down all that power through an all-wheel drive system.


    At this point it is unclear as to how much Mercedes-Benz will price the E-Class All-Terrain, however, the Volvo V90 Cross Country costs Rs 63.99 lakhs (ex-showroom).
