The new C-Class Estate.
A special place.
But generosity is only absolute when it is evident everywhere. That’s why the impressive manner the new C-Class Estate shows from outside is borne out in the ergonomically designed interior. First-class materials on door panels and on the instrument panel make the interior a quality experience. The reinterpreted centre console is a joy to behold due to its clarity, quality and reduction. High-quality workmanship, a sophisticated-sporty design idiom, a tasteful colour scheme and intelligent details such as the optional touchpad with multitouch sensor system provide an atmosphere of serene supremacy. Even the luggage compartment concept exudes generosity: the 40/20/20 partition of the three-part, folding rear backrest provides a ratio that is sure to suit any activity.
Mercedes me connect.
But the new C-Class Estate is equipped not only for all activities, but also for all eventualities, thanks to Mercedes me connect, connecting driver, vehicle and private life. The driver is thus optimally prepared in terms of breakdown and maintenance management with the system also featuring telediagnotics as standard. In the event of a breakdown or an emergency, the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system transmits data such as the vehicle condition and location to a rescue centre, which can then send help. In addition, the vehicle automatically detects when the oil or brake pads need to be changed, for instance, and reports this to the dealer. The dealer then pro-actively notifies the driver of any maintenance work which is due. Remote Online services are available on request.
These services turn a smartphone into a remote control, which, depending on the equipment package, is used to program the auxiliary heater, for example, thus preconditioning the vehicle. The location detection feature, which makes it possible to immediately locate one's vehicle in an unfamiliar city, is one of the many advantages this service offers.
Modern and efficient.
Whether diesel or petrol-powered – the engines in the new C-Class Estate are not only the most efficient, but also the cleanest amongst the competition: the diesel engine models now emit scarcely any nitrogen oxides, as these are largely removed from the exhaust by the tried-and-tested “Selective Catalytic Reduction” technology, SCR for short. All the engines are equipped with the ECO start/stop function and meet Euro 6 emission class thresholds. The optional 7-speed automatic transmission combines a high level of comfort with driving pleasure and efficiency, providing impressively smooth shifting and fast gear changes. At the same time, 7G-TRONIC PLUS helps to further reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive encompasses technologies which actively support the driver and make driving tangibly easier. In the new C-Class Estate the optional Driving Assistance package Plus offers a combination of first-class driving assistance and safety systems: DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot helps the driver keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front and also stay in lane. Brake Assist BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist and PRE-SAFE® Brake can reduce the risk of an accident at junctions, rear-end collisions and collisions with pedestrians, particularly in urban traffic.
Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist provide assistance if the vehicle leaves its lane unintentionally or during lane changes if there is a danger of collision with other vehicles.
PRE-SAFE® PLUS extends the functions of the PRE-SAFE® occupant protection system with preventive measures when a rear impact threatens, bringing Mercedes-Benz one step closer to accident-free driving.
