Autocar reports that Mercedes will introduce a first variant of the Mercedes E-Class at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It will be called the Mercedes E-Class All Terrain, and rival the likes of the Audi A6 Allroad and upcoming Volvo V90 Cross Country.

According to Autocar UK, the Mercedes E-Class All Terrain will debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show.

The exterior of the E-Class All Terrain will be based on the new Mercedes E-Class wagon that was revealed last week, but features additional plastic cladding across the lower half of the body and wheel arches, chunkier tires shodding exclusive alloy rims, higher ground clearance, skid plates on both bumpers and roof rails.

According to Mercedes E-Class’s chief engineer, Michael Kelz, the E-Class All Terrain will not be as capable off-road as Merc’s more established SUVs, but can go further than what owners would expect. It will feature an air suspension system that raises the ground clearance for mild off-roading at low speeds.
