Report: Mercedes-Benz supposedly jumping on the four-door hatchback frenzy with a C-Class hatchback

Word in the pipeline via Autobild.de is that Mercedes-Benz might be jumping on the four-door compact shooting brake-like frenzy after BMW upped the ante with the 3- and 5-Series Gran Turismo models. Previous, we heard through the grapevine that Audi was also in the works with their own competitor.

Details were reportedly sparse, though rumors have said that the supposed C-Class “hatchback” is supposed to offer “impressive head and legroom.”

Engines will vary with the usual options of turbocharged diesel and gasoline four-bangers, with the choice of an all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 good.

A timeframe is guesstimated to hover around 2016 with a price set higher than its sedan sibling.
