2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate revealed with more space in a lighter package

by SpeedLux

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan has been on the market for a short while, with S-class inspired styling and latest MB tech and safety features. This here is the more practical Estate model for those looking for more cargo space, but still the same sporty handling and the familiar engine range.

The new C-Class Estate is identical to the sedan version up front, but moving on to the rear part of the car everything is different from the B-pillar.

The new model has grown in size and has an 80millimetre increase in the wheelbase, which now stands at 2840 millimetres, compared with the previous model. It is also 96 millimetres longer (4702 millimetres) and 40 millimetres wider (1810 millimetres).

As a result the rear-seat passengers now enjoy 45 millimetres more legroom, along with more shoulder room, elbow room and headroom.

Maximum load capacity with the rear seat folded is up to 1510 liters, up by ten liters and 490 liters with seats in place. That’s 5 extra liters.

The rear seats now have a 40 : 20 : 40 split instead of the 60 : 40 split in the predecessor, making it much more practical to haul different things, while still seating 1-2 passengers there.

For added comfort the new Estate can optionally be further enhanced with the EASY PACK power liftgate and the likewise optional HANDS-FREE ACCESS system, allowing opening and closing the liftgate without touching it, by moving the foot in the area of the rear bumper.

Despite a bigger size the new model is 65 kg lighter than the outgoing model.

Engine range carries over from the sedan and from launch three BlueDIRECT four-cylinder gasoline engines and one BlueDIRECT sixcylinder gasoline engine with power outputs ranging from 156 to 333 h) will be offered.

The four-cylinder C 350 HYBRID with plug-in technology and a power output of 155 + 50 kW will follow later along with AMG powered hot wagon.
