Following the introduction of the 2014 C-Class (W205), Mercedes-Benz is putting the finishing touches on the more practical Estate version which will ride on the same MRA platform as the sedan. As a consequence, it will grow in size compared to its predecessor yet it will be lighter thanks to the new architecture.

As you would imagine, the only change in terms of design compared to the sedan will be seen at the back where the C-Class Estate will look a lot different than the outgoing model and will probably be capable to carry more cargo. As a reminder, the previous-gen C-Class Estate has a trunk capacity of 485 liters with the seats up and 1,500 liters if you fold the rear seats down.

Engine lineup will likely be taken from the sedan, along with the gearbox choices and the availability of a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. For the moment there aren't any details about an AMG version of the wagon but we do know the C63 AMG sedan has already been confirmed for an early 2015 launch.
