What Car? says...

The Mercedes C-Class Estate is a premium estate car that adds a layer of luxury to its load-lugging practicality. The car’s closest competitors are its fellow Germans, the BMW 3 Series Touring and the Audi A4 Avant. Like these cars, you can now get a four-wheel drive C-Class estate and even a plug-in hybrid.

Another string to the C-Class’s bow is a very generous equipment list that includes an impressive selection of driver aids, safety features and practical touches to help make the most of the big boot.

Fuel economy and emissions impress, too, and the C350e petrol-electric hybrid offers huge tax savings for company car drivers thanks to its ultra-low CO2 output.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions, along with our recommendations for trim levels and engines.
