2021 Mercedes C-Class Estate Makes Spy Photo Debut

The rise of crossovers and SUVs has taken its toll on wagon sales, but body styling is still relevant in some parts of the world. Europe is the most property-loving public where automakers continue to invest in these long-roof models, whether they are as small as a Skoda Fabia Combi or as large as an Audi A6 Avant.

While Mercedes has a cash cow in the GLC, it won’t overlook those who would much prefer a C-Class Estate. Today we’re sharing the very first set of spy snaps with the rival BMW 3 Series Touring, spotted just hours ago in Stuttgart, Germany. Even though this is only our first look, the prototype already appears to have the full production body and lights.

The heavy disguise makes it difficult to see what’s new, but the sleeker headlights and taillights peek through the camouflage. We don’t notice any major changes from the outgoing C-Class wagon as the greenhouse appears to be quite similar and the car’s proportions are unlikely to change much.

The grille with the multiple vertical slats reminds us of the Maybach S-Class facelift and we notice that two of the parking sensors have been integrated into the grille. The air intakes at the front bumper are purely decorative as they are both blocked, which is hardly a surprise these days. Sharp lights similar to the facelift of the E-Class and CLS can be seen from the front and rear.

With the dual exhaust tips on the driver’s side pointing towards the road, we’re worried that the new C-Class wagon will adopt fake tailpipes integrated into the rear bumper. While we can’t see what’s going on inside the cabin, there are no shelves protruding from the dashboard. In other words, the MBUX infotainment system will be mounted in the center console to enable a cleaner layout.

Mercedes is set to finally tackle the A4 Allroad with an all-terrain C-Class with standard 4Matic, high suspension and plastic body cladding, but that remains to be seen. The regular wagon will likely be released in 2021, a few months after the sedan.
