Mercedes-Benz has increased its C-Class offering by adding new Estate to the range with a price tag of R447 600 – R558 400.
The new Mercedes-Benz C 180 Estate, C 200 Estate and C 250 BlueTEC Estate stand out with clear sporty design, advanced technology and bigger cargo space.
The new Mercedes-Benz Estate features sophisticated interior that makes modern luxury tangible. The Estate reinforces its reputation as a multifaceted lifestyle vehicle with outstanding properties for everyday use.
The new C-Class Estate combines a striking, dynamic design and high-class appointments with outstanding variability and a high level of utility. With its versatility it also adapts to a wide variety of requirements.
As a stylish, sporty, spacious vehicle it accompanies active, modern people on shopping sprees, on vacation or when playing sports, and is suitable for families in every respect. Consequently, it continues the tradition of the C-Class Estates, which all in their own time combined demands on lifestyle, sportiness and practicality in an estate car on a new level.
The dimensions of the new C-Class Estate have grown considerably. With an 80-millimetre increase in the wheelbase (2840 millimetres) compared with the previous model, the vehicle is 96 millimetres longer (4702 millimetres) and 40 millimetres wider (1810 millimetres).
The resulting increase in space primarily benefits the rear-seat passengers, who now enjoy 45 millimetres more legroom. There is also more interior width and headroom than in the previous model.
The new C-Class sets visual highlights with a modern, dynamic design that at the same time exudes sensual purity, arouses emotions and, to top it all off, stages high tech in perfect fashion. Customers can choose from two fronts – with the sports grille or – reserved solely for the EXCLUSIVE line – with the luxury grille with the Mercedes-Benz star on the bonnet.
Unusual for a vehicle with a focus on a high level of utility and functionality is the high-quality interior of the Estate, which was adopted from the sedan. With straightforward sportiness, thrilling flowing lines and high-grade materials on the level of a luxury vehicle, it provides a modern, luxurious and at the same time sporty ambience.
In addition to the base model, there are also three distinct design and equipment lines each for the exterior and interior.
The touchpad in the new C-Class Estate developed by Mercedes-Benz marks an evolutionary step. As on a smartphone, all the head unit functions can be operated using finger gestures.
The 65 x 45 millimetre control surface of the touchpad is built into the handrest on the central control panel and bordered by a high-quality metal support – a design feature with a high-tech feel which exudes luxury at the same time.
A head-up display is also a new feature in the C-Class Estate. As in a jet fighter, it projects important information directly into the driver’s field of vision, ensuring that there is less distraction from the road ahead. The system provides information on vehicle speed, posted speed limits, navigation instructions and DISTRONIC messages.
