How does the most-capable E-Class ever fare against the raised Volvo V90? We find out
Mercedes-Benz has launched the E-Class All-Terrain in India at a price tag of Rs 75 lakh. It doesn’t have any rival in the Indian market except for the Volvo V90 Cross Country, which is priced at Rs 65.31 lakh (ex-showroom pan-India). So let's see how these two elevated estates fare against each other on paper.
The Volvo is longer, taller and wider than the Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes-E Class All Terrain: Compared to the V90, the E-Class All-Terrain feels under equipped in this department as well. It gets three-zone climate control, auto-dimming IRVM and ORVMs, panoramic sunroof, 64-colour ambient lighting, air suspension, Artico leather upholstery, foldable rear seat and tyre pressure monitoring system.
The Volvo undercuts the Merc by around Rs 10 lakh. It’s slightly bigger and gets more safety tech on board. The V90 Cross Country is also more powerful than the E-Class All-Terrain, and that is why we think it makes for a more value-for-money proposition in this comparison.
