Mercedes has just revealed the new generation of its C-Class family of station wagons. Judging by the press photos, the new car looks a lot more energetic and, well, expensive than the previous C-Class boasting muscular fenders, elegantly shaped head lights and a new corporate grille that houses the famous Mercedes Star.




The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate will be available with three diesel and five gasoline engines and will be shipped in three usual trims: the Classic, Elegance and the sporty Avantgarde.

The cars will deliver one of the most spacious cargo spaces in the class.

With the rear seats up, the cargo volume will be about 485 liters, and with the rear seats folded it’ll triple to impressive 1500 liters.

Just like the sedan, the Estate may be ordered with the Agility Control suspension control package, short-throw six-speed gearbox and a sportier steering system.

There will also be an optional AMG package with even stronger suspension lowered by 15 mm, 17-inch alloys.
