This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The C-Class has a decent score in official crash tests and comes with plenty of safety kit as standard. However, you'd pay extra for rear side airbags and Isofix child seat mounting points. Other safety features available include a fire extinguisher and since 2004 tyre pressure sensors.

Decent space with he rear seats in place with a luggage volume of 470 litres, but you might have expected a little more with the rear seats folded. Its maximum luggage capacity is 1354 litres - 33 litres more than in a Honda Jazz. The cabin also has a few extra storage areas
