What Car? says...
You can get more practical carry-alls than the Mercedes C-Class Estate, but there's a lot of high-tech in this posh load-lugger to justify its premium billing.
We’re not kidding – the latest C-Class is fitted with some very useful hybrid technology, plus its large touchscreen is from the much pricier Mercedes S-Class. And you can’t fold down the seats in an S-Class to lug around chests of drawers.
Read on over the next few pages for our full review of the latest Mercedes C-Class Estate. We'll give you our in-depth impressions of its capabilities, along with our recommendations for trim levels and engines.
We'll also tell you how it compares with the talented rival cars it's up against, namely the Audi A4 Avant, the BMW 3 Series Touring, the Skoda Superb Estate, the Volkswagen Passat Estate and the Volvo V60.
