Mercedes introduces C Class sedan

  • Mr Roland Folger

Mercedes Benz India introduced the C Class 250 D sedan in March in the mid-size luxury segment and announced its local production. "The all new C-Class completely redefined the mid-size luxury sedan segment in India and created for itself a new territory of supremacy," Roland Folger, MD and CEO of Mercedes Benz India, said in a statement. Priced at Rs.44.36 lakh (ex-showroom Pune), the sedan is equipped with 9G - TRONIC transmission and a 2,142 cc diesel engine capable of producing 500 Nm of torque with a speed of 0-100 km per hour in 6.6 seconds.

Other features include LED Intelligent Light System, Garmin Map Pilot, 17 inch alloy wheels and ambient lighting among others. Mercedes Benz already sells C 200 and C 220 models under the C Class and has commenced local production of 250 d to catch up with the demand and cut down the waiting period. "The overwhelming response for the new C-Class drove us to commence local manufacturing of the C 250 d simultaneously with its introduction in India," added Folger.
