Mercedes-Benz has officially revealed the C-Class Estate, following a leak we posted earlier today.

With an overall length of 4702mm, the all-new C-Class Estate is 96mm longer than its predecessor and has an 80mm elongated wheelbase which now measures 2840mm. Only the front of the car was borrowed from the sedan as Mercedes-Benz says the wagon is different from the B-pillars towards the back.

Rear legroom has increased by a significant 45mm while the additional 40mm in the car’s width (now at 1810mm) has boosted head, elbow and shoulder room. Trunk capacity with the seats up has jumped by five liters to 490 liters and by ten to 1510 liters once you fold down the rear seats. The rear bench has a 40/20/40-split configuration and boasts electrically-foldable backrests.

At an additional cost, the C-Class wagon can be had with an Easy Pack function for assisted tailgate opening or with a Hands-Free Access option which enables the opening/closing of the trunk by simply waving your foot under the rear bumper.

Despite growing in size, the new C-Class Estate has up to lost 65 kg (143 lbs) and can be had with an optional Airmatic air suspension with self-leveling function, a novelty for this segment. 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. Gasoline engines vary in output from 156 PS (115 kW) to 333 PS (245 kW) while on the diesel side power ranges from 115 PS (85 kW) to 204 PS (150 kW). There will also be two hybrid versions offering 204 PS + 27 PS in the C300 BlueTEC HYBRID and 211 PS + 68 PS in the C350 BlueTEC HYBRID.

Sales of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate are programmed to commence in September.
