The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the brand's bestselling model series. The C-Class Estate is a lifestyle estate with a special aura. Even as a plug-in hybrid, the rear of this sporty estate has a maximum load capacity of 1335 litres. The new generation combines emotive appeal with intelligence. The sporty interior exudes class, featuring flowing forms in a new interpretation of modern luxury. The C-Class offers a particularly wide choice as a plug-in hybrid, because EQ Power is available in combination with a diesel or petrol engine, and either as a saloon or estate model.

The C-Class has had numerous new interior features since the upgrade in 2018: digital cockpit (31.2 cm/12.3‘‘), larger media display (26 cm/10.25“), new multifunction steering wheel with touch controls and numerous individualisation options, e.g. with new open-pored trim elements.

With this package, the side bolsters and lumbar support can be individually adjusted by means of an electrically driven pneumatic pump, and the massage function is also new.

Individually configurable driving experience with new DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL suspension including damping characteristics adjustable in three stages and Sports Direct-Steer system or AIR BODY CONTROL suspension MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE high beam are also available for this model series for the first time.

As a flexibly usable lifestyle estate, the C 300 de Estate (weighted fuel consumption: 1.6-1.5 l/100 km, weighted CO2 emissions: 42-39 g/km, weighted power consumption: 18.6-16.2 kWh/100 km)[1] is suitable for any purpose. It impresses with its dynamism (0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds), spaciousness (315-1335 litres of luggage space) and also as a towing vehicle (towing capacity up to 1800 kg).

[1] The stated figures are the measured "NEDC CO2 figures" in accordance with Article 2 No. 1 Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1153. The fuel consumption figures were calculated based on these figures. The range and the electrical consumption have been determined on the basis of Regulation (EC) No. 692/2008. A different value is applied in accordance with EmoG. A higher value may apply as the basis for calculating the motor vehicle tax.
