The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate has been spied conducting some last-minute testing ahead of an official reveal planned in the following months.

Several days ago we saw an accurate render of the 2015 C-Class Estate and now a prototype was caught on camera by our spies. Despite the extensive amount of camouflage at the back, it’s very easy to notice the taillights will be considerably bigger than on the outgoing model and these will have a more horizontal configuration.

The roof-mounted spoiler will also be more prominent while the car's larger dimensions should not only improve cabin space but also the trunk’s loading area which could reach almost 500 liters compared to the current model's 485-liter capacity.

It should be unveiled later this year, possibly in October at the Paris Motor Show. In 2015 the C-Class Estate will receive the AMG treatment with a V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine outputting around 480 bhp (358 kW).
