Next-Generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate Spied

A selection of 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estates were recently spied loaded onto a massive car transporter and were wearing essentially no camouflage with the exception of some light black tape on the redesigned taillights.

Obviously, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate will have more cargo space than the regular C-Class sedan and these images confirm previous spyshots and a reported leak by showing completely redesigned taillights when compared to the sedan.
If current reports are to be believed, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate will ride on a new MRA platform which is lighter than the platform used by the sedan. As you would imagine, engine options are set to remain identical to the sedan but it is currently unclear just how many variations of the C-Class Estate will be offered.

One version which can be confirmed is a C63 AMG Estate set to receive the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine as the upcoming regular C63 AMG sedan. Because this powertrain has yet to be released, details are not yet fully known. However, it is pinned to deliver around 450 hp.

Considering the C-Class Estate has been spied testing on so many occasions for the past few months, it is likely a debut is just around the corner. We expect such a debut to come in the second half of the year.
