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.
- Both the raised estate wagons are powered by 2.0-litre diesel engines. However, the Volvo is the more powerful car here.
- The Volvo’s D5 engine makes 41PS/80Nm more than the Mercedes’ OM 654 unit.
- When it comes to transmission, the E-Class All-Terrain gets a 9-speed gearbox while the Volvo is equipped with a 8-speed unit. Both the cars here get a 4WD system for off-roading.

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.
