Mercedes-Benz has officially unveiled today the all-new 2014 C-Class Estate model. The new German brake is coming with an overall length of 4.702 mm, and it is 96 mm longer than its predecessor. In addition, the German car manufacturer says the new car wheelbase now measures 2.840 mm.
As you expect, the front fascia of the car was borrowed from the sedan, while the C-Class Estate is different from the B-pillars towards the back.
Under these conditions, the rear legroom has increased by 45 mm while the additional 40 mm in the car’s width has boosted head, elbow and shoulder room. The trunk capacity of the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate has now 490 liters and 1.510 liters with the rear seats folded down. The rear bench has a 40/20/40-split configuration and boasts electrically-foldable backrests.
Despite growing in size, the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate has lost 65 kilograms and can be fitted with the optional Airmatic air suspension with self-leveling function.
Engine lineup is carried over from the sedan and customers can choose depending on the engine selection from rear-wheel drive or a 4MATIC all-wheel drive arrangement.
Petrol units vary in output from 156 horsepower (115 kW) to 333 horsepower (245 kW) while on the diesel side power ranges from 115 horsepower (85 kW) to 204 horsepower (150 kW). There will also be two hybrid versions offering 204 HP + 27 HP in the C300 BlueTEC HYBRID and 211 HP + 68 HP in the C350 BlueTEC HYBRID.
According to Mercedes-Benz, the 2014 C-Class Estate will be available on the market starting this September.Source: Mercedes-Benz
