With the new Estate model Mercedes-Benz will expand the C-Class family starting in September 2014. The Estate has a clear, emotional-sporty design, innovative technology, variability and a cargo volume greater than its predecessor. Its high-class, sophisticated interior makes modern luxury tangible with design highlights. With these qualities the Estate reinforces its reputation as a multifaceted lifestyle vehicle – outstanding for everyday use. In addition, with its many new assistance systems it not only offers the highest standards of safety, but thanks to intelligent lightweight construction, exceptional aerodynamics and new economical engines it also sets new efficiency benchmarks in its segment.
Efficient and lively engines
The powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines with ECO start/stop function comply with Euro VI emissions standards and ensure sporty performance and driving pleasure. Compared with the predecessor they consume in excess of 20 per cent less fuel.
The diesel models of the new C-Class are powered by the further advanced four-cylinder or the new small four-cylinder engine, which as BlueTEC models are all equipped with SCR technology (selective catalytic reduction). They cover an output range from 115 hp to 204 hp.
In addition, Mercedes-Benz offers a diesel engine combined with a hybrid module. The C 300 BlueTEC Hybrid with four-cylinder diesel engine and compact electric motor generates a power output of 204 + 27 hp and despite its high power output delivers 74 mpg in NEDC combined mode.
Three BlueDirect four-cylinder petrol engines and one BlueDirect six‑cylinder petrol engine with power outputs ranging from 156 to 333 hp will initially be available for the new C-Class. The four-cylinder C 350 Hybrid with plug-in technology and a power output of 208 + 67 hp will follow in due course.
