- The C-Class All-Terrain will be based on the next-gen C-Class that will arrive in 2021
- It will allegedly ride on Mercedes' updated MRA II platform
- Will feature all-wheel drive and a higher ride height
Mercedes-Benz, just like everybody else, knows that crossovers are good business. And the whole auto industry is warming up to them. As a matter of fact, reports now claim that Mercedes-Benz has plans to introduce a C-Class All-Terrain that will be based on the next-gen C-Class which is due in 2021.
Sources reckon that Mercedes’ upcoming C-Class All-Terrain and Coupe version will eventually join the new C-Class line-up in 2022. As it will be built on the same lines as Merc’s bigger E-Class All-Terrain, one can expect it to be engineered with a high-riding AWD version of the updated MRA II platform with a rugged intent.
There’s also speculation about this model borrowing the large digital screens from the latest A-Class, along with other bits such as the company's new ‘Digital Light’ headlamps (HD/dazzle-free) and some improved semi-autonomous capability. This is just about all the information that’s currently available on the rugged C-Class estate.
When it arrives, the C-Class All-Terrain is expected to lock horns with the A4 Allroad in the international markets. Stay tuned to CarWale for details in the time to come.
