The new Mercedes C-Class Estate will be priced from £28,055 when it arrives in showrooms in September. Three engine options and three trim levels will be available from launch, with prices rising to £33,220 for the range-topping model.
The added practicality the estate model brings adds a further £1,200 to the price tag. All engine options have been borrowed from the smaller saloon, with petrol engines kicking off with the 182bhp four-cylinder C200 (£28,055). It is available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
Diesel options are made up of the C220 BlueTEC (£30,565) and C250 BlueTEC (£33,220), which produce 170bhp and 204bhp, while emitting 108g/km and 117g/km of CO2 respectively. Later in the year two more models will join the range, a C200 BlueTEC diesel and the C300 BlueTEC Hybrid.
Familiar SE, Sport and AMG Line specifications are available to buyers, with standard kit across the range including a powered tailgate, roof rails and split folding rear seats. Four option packs are also offered, including he Executive Package (£995), which adds a Garmin Map Pilot sat-nav, heated front seats and chrome roof rails. The Premium package adds a Burmester surround sound system, panoramic roof, keyless go, ambient lighting and electric memory seats.
Mercedes will also offer the AirMATIC Agility Package (£895) on the C-Class Estate, which allows the car to self-level and be raised by 25mm.
