Mercedes-Benz has decided that North America deserves another wagon. The bad news is that it is destined only for Canada.


The wagon in question is the C-Class wagon. Sold elsewhere in the world for a couple of years, the C-Class wagon will only come in one configuration for Canada.

The C300d 4Matic will come equipped with a turbocharged 2.1L four-cylinder diesel with 200 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. Power flows to all four wheels via Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel drive system. No transmission is mentioned, but it would be safe to assume that it will be a seven-speed automatic. Mercedes' Airmatic suspension will be an option as well. As for cargo space, Mercedes says the C-Class Wagon has a maximum cargo capacity of 53 cubic feet, not far from the E-Class wagon's 57.4 cubic feet.

Mercedes-Benz hasn't announced pricing or when it go on sale in Canada.

Now if you're still holding out hope that Mercedes-Benz will bring the C-Class to the U.S., Autoblog asked Mercedes-Benz USA about it. This was the response they got back from a spokesperson.

"There are no plans to bring the C-Class Wagon to the US market based on unique market conditions. We are proud to have 100 percent market share with the E350 4Matic wagon and Mercedes-AMG E63 wagon in the US market."

It should be noted this isn't the first vehicle Mercedes-Benz has only sold in Canada. The B-Class which is a small minivan or what Mercedes calls a “compact sports tourer” has been on sale since 2005. Also, the GLE Coupe is available with a diesel (called the GLE 350d 4Matic) in Canada.

Correction: Mercedes-Benz has sold a version of the B-Class in the U.S. called the B-Class Electric Drive since 2014. The vehicle is only sold in a few states.
