New C-class estate to get four-wheel drive option in 2015

Mercedes to offer new four-wheel-drive C-class estate from the middle of next year, while a hybrid version is also planned

A four-wheel-drive variant of the new Mercedes-Benz C-class estate will reach the UK in the middle of next year.

Following its plan to offer its 4Matic all-wheel-drive technology on the recently launched C-class saloon, Mercedes chiefs have confirmed that the forthcoming wagon will follow suit in the UK.

In some markets, four-wheel drive is increasingly being regarded as a safety feature, and Mercedes is keen to tackle BMW’s xDrive and Audi’s Quattro systems head-on.
