New Mercedes-Benz C-class estate UK prices and specifications announced


Friday 20 June, 2014

The new C-Class Estate is set to arrive in the UK in September – priced from £28,055 OTR.

With five engine options and three models lines, the new C-Class Estate sets new class benchmarks in refinement, economy and standard equipment – with functional highlights including a powered tailgate, roof rails and split folding rear seats being fitted to every model.

Starting the range is the C 200 petrol engine, producing 184 hp and emitting 128 g/km of CO2. Priced at £28,055 (a £1,200 premium over the Saloon), the C 200 is available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.

Two diesel engines – the 220 BlueTEC and the 250 BlueTEC – produce 170 hp and 204 hp and emit from 108 g/km and 117 g/km of CO₂respectively. The 220 BlueTEC – available with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox - starts from £30,565 OTR while the 250 BlueTEC (available with a seven-speed automatic gearbox only) is priced from £33,220 OTR.

Two further engines – a C 200 BlueTEC diesel and the C 300 BlueTEC HYBRID – will join the range later in the year.

Linked to each engine range is the choice of three model lines – SE, Sport and AMG Line. In addition there are four option packages – the Executive Package (£995 and available on the SE) which comprises the Garmin Map Pilot navigation system, heated front seats and chrome (rather than black) roof rails.

The Premium Package adds a panoramic glass sunroof, Keyless-Go, the ambient lighting system and the electric seat memory package. The Premium Plus Package adds the mighty Burmester surround sound system and COMAND Online. The packages cost £1,595 and £2,795 respectively.

Further options include the Driving Assistance Package (£1,495 available on the Sport and AMG Line models) which incorporates the Blind Spot Assist, Distronic Plus, Lane-Keeping Assist and the Pre-Safe anticipatory safety system.

The AirMATIC Agility Package (£895) allows the suspension on the C-Class Estate to self-level and be raised by 25mm when required as well as varying to allow different damping characteristics. The Air-Balance package, meanwhile, allows a fragrance to be diffused around the interior of the car via a small container found in the glovebox.
