Mercedes-Benz has traditionally made estates that provided classless transport for the discerning individual. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate continues the tradition, and is the company's entry-level player in the luxury load-lugging sector. The car’s closest competitors are its fellow Germans, the BMW 3 Series Touring and the Audi A4 Avant, as well as Sweden's entry, the Volvo V60.
The C-Class was facelifted in 2018, with a bunch of new technical highlights added along with some new engines to keep it fresh. The latter means lots of choice, including diesel, petrol or hybrid power, all operating though a nine-speed automatic gearbox with the availability of rear- or four-wheel drive.
