Next Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate revealed

Larger and lighter C-Class wagon in the pipeline.

The new C-Class Estate will start arriving in European dealerships in September.

Mercedes-Benz has shown off the fresh design of the new C-Class Estate.

Sporting new looks, which Mercedes has described as a “striking, dynamic design”, the fourth generation of the C-Class Estate has a longer wheelbase (up 80mm), and is 96mm longer overall and 40mm wider than the current model.

Consequently, load capacity in the Mercedes-Benz wagon grows to a total of 1510 litres, while the use of aluminium in the new models body sees weight drop 65kgs.

Prof Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, says the new C-Class Estate is all about versatility.

“The new C-Class Estate is not only extremely practical thanks to its large, variable load compartment.

“With its state-of-the-art technical features it also strikes out in new directions in its segment with regard to safety, efficiency and comfort. And both men and women drivers enjoy noticeably more driving pleasure”.

Australian pricing and specifications for the new C-Class Estate are yet to be confirmed.
