Children is one story, but with my long legs I had problem with C and never went for one.
Years ago could buy C wagon very cheap, because the family who bought it - found it too small.
Waiting for new model can bite you. Even MB does it safely starting new model with old, proven drivetrain, often you will find baby teeth on new design.
Good luck shopping.
