The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wagon is Coming to North America*

* But not the U.S. — at least, not yet.

Add the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Wagon to the list of vehicles available in Canada and not the United States. Mercedes-Benz Canada announced Thursday it would begin selling the long-roof version of the C-Class this year. To add insult to injury, it will be a diesel with all-wheel drive — and that’s it.

Mercedes did not disclose what shades of brown will be available.

The previous-generation C-Class wagon was not available in Canada or the United States.

When the C-Class Wagon goes on sale later this year, it will be powered by a 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine producing 200 horsepower and 369 lbs-ft of torque sending power to all four wheels through the automaker’s 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. While not detailed, the C-Class Wagon will likely receive the same seven-speed automatic as the E 250 BlueTec.

MSRP and exact on-sale date were not disclosed.

So, who’s going to be visiting The Great White North this year?

    Those E-wagons, and I assume all E-class are pretty discounted with the all new replacement on the horizon. I'm going to have to replace my 2000 E-wagon some day and was kicking around a local dealer. The salesman started at 8k under sticker, even though I told him I'm not in the market. Lightly optioned, you can probably get near $50k. It ain't cheap, but a lot of car for the money. The AMG version is still 6 figures though.

    I suspect the oil burning all wheeldrive is just to prove that Americans do not want wagons!!

  • Arthur Dailey 'The capitalists will sell use the very rope that we use to hang them.' In our household we have cut down our shopping/spending and pay more to purchase products from 1st world nations or 2nd world nations that are our 'allies'. That also means quite often only buying and eating fruit and vegetables that are in season. Just like our parents and grandparents did.At least TTAC published an article on May 21st regarding LAN transformers that contravene the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act being used in some BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, and VW products?
  • ToolGuy I wouldn't buy any old Chinese brand of vehicle, but the right EV at the right price, maybe possibly yes. If you told me this would alarm Ford and torque off FreedMike, all the better. 😉P.S. I would *definitely* consider an EV made in Taiwan. Take that, paramount leader!P.P.S. China batteries/components to convert one of my ICE vehicles to EV? Yes.
  • Wolfwagen I expect Renault to be less popular than Fiat
