We've spotted the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class wagon testing in the past, and we even caught a fairly undisguised example of the AMG version in development. However, the latest shots show it with almost no disguise at all. In fact, these vehicles almost look ready to be dropped off at European dealers to find homes with happy consumers.
Mercedes did a good job with the styling on the estate version. The only visible concealment on these cars is hiding the star at the front, some masking over the rear window on the side and covers over the taillights. From the front end to the C-pillar, the wagon is almost identical to the sedan, but the roof has a nice arch to lend a more stylish look. All of the models here also have a roof spoiler at the rear, which seems to extend the car's length a bit, visually. The taillights seem to be more horizontal than the relatively square units on the sedan, but the cladding makes that hard to know for certain. Really, it's everything you would expect from a five-door version of the svelte new C-Class.
A release date for the wagon hasn't been confirmed for Europe yet, but it was previously rumored to debut at the Paris Motor Show in October. The previous generation C-Class estate never made it to the US. Mercedes hasn't confirmed the new model here either, but it seems somewhat unlikely.
