Following yesterday’s release of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate, a selection of videos showcasing the new estate have been released.
As the name implies, the C-Class Estate is just that; an estate variant of the C-Class and is the fourth generation C-Class Estate produced. It measures 96 mm longer than the standard C-Class sedan, totalling 4702 mm long with the wheelbase being extended up 80 mm to 2840 mm. Additionally, the car is 40 mm wider than the sedan. Thanks to these larger proportions, passengers at the rear have 45 mm of additional legroom as well as more headroom.
Compared to the previous generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate, the new one supports 490 litres of storage space with the rear seats up and 1510 litres with them down. This represents a 5 litre and 10 litre increase in space respectively. Alongside the additional storage space, practicality has further been increased in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate with more versatile rear seats which can be folded in a 40/20/40 split.
A host of engines are available for the new C-Class Estate including a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 179 hp. Next up is a 2.1-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine delivering 168 hp for the C220 Bluetec while the C250 Bluetec produces 201 hp. Further down the road, a host of six cylinder and hybrid models will be made available. As standard, the C-Class Estate is rear-wheel drive but will be available as an all-wheel drive in some markets.
