Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate will receive an all-terrain versionMay 18, 2018
After the generation change, the C-Class family will be expanded with a new version of the All-Terrain.
Currently, there is a real boom of crossovers, but Mercedes-Benz can go a few different ways with the next-generation C-Class, mixing the station wagon and crossover. Simply put, the company plans to launch a cross-wagon C-Class All-Terrain as a competitor Audi A4 Allroad, informs edition Auto Motor und Sport. Recall, such a modification is already available in the E-Class family of the new generation.
The new generation C-Class will be built on the updated MRA II platform and will be approximately the same with the current generation size. In the salon will appear large digital screens similar to the A-Class of the last generation, possibly in the arsenal of the future novelty will include the technology of the head optics Digital Light, and new and more modern driver assistants for the expansion of semi-autonomous capabilities.
The output of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan of the next generation is scheduled for 2021, the coupe and station wagon will join it a year later. The All-Terrain version will also be released in 2022. The appearance of the all-terrain C-Class will be performed in the same style with the older E-Class in a similar performance. The car will have all-wheel drive and increased ground clearance.
In addition, for those who need something more sporty than off-road, Mercedes-Benz is preparing a new generation of SL-Class. The output of the model is scheduled for 2019. According to the publication, SL will be the first model of the company, built on the MSA platform. It is noted that changing the platform will significantly reduce the weight of the car.
But about the SLC model there are disappointing rumors. The Auto Motor und Sport report confirms the company’s plans to abandon the small sports car due to weak sales. If the manufacturer decides to extend the life of the model, the updated version will use the current platform, or will also be transferred to the MSA platform.
