The brand new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate has been officially unveiled by the German based automaker, just a few hours after the first leaked images with the model have hit the web.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has received five liters more in its trunk capacity, to a total of 490 liters, and ten with the rear seats folded, to 1,510, compared to its four-door brother. The company says that the vehicle has a 40/20/40 split configuration and it’s also coming with electrically foldable backrests. The total length of the new C-Class Estate stands at 4,702 mm, being 96 mm longer than the sedan, and its wheelbase has been elongated by 80 mm, to a total of 2,840 mm.
The front end of the car was borrowed from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan as this is a different vehicle from the B-pillars, towards the rear. Despite growing in size, the new C-Class Estate has lost 65 kg (143 lbs) and it can be had with the Easy Pack function, with the Hands-Free Access option, with the optional Airmatic suspension system with the self-leveling function and with some other tweaks, which should make it highly appreciated amongst its future customers.
As far as the engine lineup goes, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has received units with outputs ranging between 156 HP (115 kW) and 333 HP (245 kW), in the petrol burner category, while the diesels are ranging between 115 HP (85 kW) and 204 HP (150 kW). Two hybrid versions, the C300 BlueTEC HYBRID and the C350 BlueTEC HYBRID will complete the range. The first deliveries of the model will start in September. No pricing details have been announced yet.
