The sixth-gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class (W206), often termed the Baby S-Class, gets a host of cosmetic updates, mechanical changes and hi-tech features over its predecessor. In India, the new C-Class will be offered with a 197 hp 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor (C200), a 194 hp 2.0-litre diesel engine (C220d), and a 245 hp 2.0-litre oil-burner (C300d). All the engines will be paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox and will get Mercedes’ 4Matic four-wheel-drive system as well.
Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “The C-Class is an important product in our portfolio and will strengthen our luxury sedan offering even more. With every new generation, the loyal customers of the C-Class have preferred the car owing to its superior comfort, technological prowess and evolving design. The new C-Class now creates a new benchmark by excelling in design, comfort and tech offerings, moving closer to the New S-Class, rightly underlining its popularity as the Baby S-Class”
He further added, “The C-Class has already generated significant interest among our customers even before launch. To honor their loyalty and long wait for the car, for the first time we are exclusively opening the bookings of the New C-Class for our existing Mercedes-Benz customers only.
