Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate spied once again winter testing

Recently some spy photographers have clicked batch of photos of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate undergoing final testing ahead of an official reveal that is expected to take most likely for early March at the Geneva Motor Show.

Following the introduction of the 2014 C-Class (W205), Mercedes-Benz is in the process of giving the finishing touches on the more practical Estate version which will ride on the same MRA platform as the sedan. Therefore, it will grow in size compared to its predecessor but it will be lighter thanks to the new architecture.

The only change in terms of design compared to the sedan that can be seen is at the back where the C-Class Estate will look a lot different than the outgoing model and will have more space to carry more cargo. As a reminder, the previous-gen C-Class Estate had a trunk capacity of 485 liters with the seats up and 1,500 liters if you fold the rear seats down.

Engine lineup will likely be taken from the sedan, along with the gearbox choices and the availability of a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. As of now there aren’t any details about an AMG version of the wagon but we do know that the C63 AMG sedan has already been confirmed for an early 2015 launch.
