While enough has already been reported about the new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we are yet to know how the C-Class Estate would look like. Mercedes is still busy testing the C-Class Estate and seen here is a video that shows a C-Class Estate test mule undergoing some last minute testing on public roads.
The more practical estate variant of the C-Class will be unveiled in January, at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Quite unsurprisingly, akin to the sedan variant, the C-Class estate borrows several design cues from the larger sibling, the W222 S Class. The car also seems to have taken some design inspiration from the CLA.
The Estate version is expected to be powered by the same set of engines that is available with the sedan version:
- A 2.2-liter CDI four-pot diesel engine with power figures ranging from 170 HP to 231 HP
- A 1.6-liter four-pot petrol engine with power figure of 156 HP
- A 2.0-liter four-pot petrol engine with power figures ranging from 184 HP to 252 HP
- A 3.0-liter V6 engine with a power figure of 333 HP
The C Class Estate, again, like the sedan sibling, will be underpinned by the MRA platform and this will make the car roughly 100 kgs (220 lbs) lighter than its predecessor. The C Class Estate will come with features such as Airmatic suspension, an adjustable radiator shutter, 8.4-inch color display and a touch-controlled pad.
