Mercedes-Benz launches new C-Class with BS-VI diesel engine

Mercedes-AMG A35 launch

Mercedes Benz India has launched the 2018 C-Class facelift at an introductory price of Rs 40 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, India) in the country. Now offered only in diesel option, this new update is claimed to be the biggest in the history of C-Class and with about 6,500 new components, which is more than half the number of components in an average C-Class sedan.

The new C 220d's base price is almost Rs 3 lakh less than the outgoing model (Rs 42.94-43.54 lakh), while the top-spec C 300d is about Rs 3 lakh dearer than the outgoing C 250d, which had a price tag of Rs 45.41-46.87 lakh.

Speaking of the cosmetic updates at the outside, the 2018 C-Class facelift gets a handful of tweaks as mostly it similar to the outgoing model.

Under the skin, there's a MacPherson front suspension setup, with a four-link system at the rear for enhanced "stability and agility". The company has introduced a new silver paint scheme with the sedan. The steering wheel too gets touch control buttons as opposed to clickers, a feature that has trickled down through the Mercedes family, with the feature usually making its presence felt in the S-Class or the E-Class.

The updated C-Class also comes with an all-new 10.25-inch media display screen and new generation telematics. The AMG variant is equipped with Active parking assist as standard safety feature.

The BS-VI-compliant 2.0-litre diesel engine under the bonnet of the C-class will be shared with the soon-to-arrive E-class All-Terrain, though the sedan will have it in two states of tune - 194hp/400Nm in the C 220d and 245hp/500Nm in the C 300d.

The new C 300d meanwhile replaces the C250 d and is powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel motor as the C 200d which makes 245PS and 500Nm in this guise. The engine is linked to a 9-speed torque convertor automatic transmission which transmits the power to the rear wheels of the sedan.

Mumbai: The largest luxury vehicle maker Mercedes-Benz, which controls over 40% of the market, Thursday launched a new C-Class, one of its most popular executive saloons, with BS VI diesel engine.
