The new model comes with a lot more technology, including an Airmatic air suspension option with self-leveling control, as well as a 4MATIC all-wheel drive option (overseas markets), and a new Easy Pack automatic tailgate system.

In the back there is 490 litres of cargo space. Despite being a wagon, it is just 10 litres more than what is offered in the sedan. It is five litres more than the predecessor though. It can be expanded to 1510 litres with the 40:20:40 rear seats folded down.
