Australian outlet Motoring.com apparently heard through the grapevine that Mercedes-Benz could be interested in producing two new versios of their C-Class and E-Class Estates, or wagons for us Americans.
The outlet spoke to Mercedes spoksperson, Matthias Luhrs.
The new versions under apparent consideration are being described as possible “all-road” models, or models that will be lifted with some extra ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive. Given the name, think Audi Allroad Quattro, Volvo V60 Cross Country and Subaru Outback.
Not much else is known about these potential soft-roaders by Mercedes, but given the climate of how buyers are loving crossovers right now, and soft-roader wagons are considered crossovers, this makes a lot of sense for Mercedes.
Would you buy a Mercedes “allroad” wagon if it made it stateside?
