Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wagon (S205) to be Unveiled in Leipzig

Even though it was initially expected to be unveiled at the 2014 edition of the Geneva Motor Show, the station wagon version of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has continuously refused to appear from behind the curtains, despite the fact that a non-camouflaged model was spotted last Fall.

With that being said, a number of recent insider reports bring news about the official launch of the C-Class T-Modell (S205), which is said to happen later this month, at the 2014 edition of the AMI International Motor Show in Leipzig.

Apart from being a rather small auto show compared with the usual suspects, the venue in Leipzig is also known as being close to secondary factories from two Mercedes-Benz competitors - BMW and Porsche – which may or may not have influenced Daimler's decision to unveil the car there.

Porsche manufactures the Macan, Cayenne and the Panamera in Leipzig, while BMW builds the 1 Series, 2 Series Coupe, X1, i3 and i8, neither of which is in essence a direct competitor for the upcoming C-Class Wagon (S205).

Featuring the exact same engine lineup as the sedan version, the C-Class Wagon (T-Modell or Estate, depending on country) will be available with everything from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder to a twin-turbocharged four-liter V8 in the C 63 AMG variant.

Compared with the sedan though, the station wagon is said to feature a self-leveling rear suspension in standard, with the newly-introduced Airmatic suspension to be offered as an option. Expect more details about the model as we are nearing its launch date.
