The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-class estate has been spotted in India

Only the sedan is scheduled to appear in India, therefore the new C-Class estate was most likely utilised for component testing.

The new Mercedes C-Class test mule was reportedly spotted in Bengaluru, ahead of its launch later in 2022. The new C-Class had its global debut in February of last year and went on sale in international markets later that year.

The test mule was a C-class estate with data logging equipment in the co-seat, driver’s despite the fact that India is only likely to get the C-class sedan. Despite its popularity in foreign countries, the estate body shape never truly caught on with Indian customers. While some brands, such as Mercedes, have launched estate versions of their models in India, this one is most likely simply here for testing.

This car is registered to Mercedes-Benz Research and Development, which is based in Bengaluru, according to the number plates.

According to the equipment in the co-seat, driver’s this car is most likely being used to test the new C-Class engines in Indian driving conditions. Electrified powertrains are standard on the C-Class globally, with even entry-level cars including 48V mild-hybrid technology, which could potentially be standard on the India-spec variant. The mild-hybrid technology, like those found in other Mercedes-Benz vehicles, provides an extra boost while driving. The car might also serve as a test bed for the company’s latest software, which could include everything from entertainment to driver aid systems.

In terms of design, the new C-Class is similar to previous new-generation Mercedes-Benz models, with overall styling similar to the S-Class and the new A-Class sedan. The new S-Class has also affected the cabin, with a big portrait-style touchscreen taking up nearly all of the centre console and containing the majority of the in-car features. With a 25mm longer wheelbase, the cabin space is likely to be greater than the existing C-Class.

The C-Class will be available with 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines, like before, with higher-performance AMG variants arriving later. The new C-Class, like its predecessor, is planned to be produced locally at Mercedes-plant Benz’s in Chakan, Maharashtra.
