New Mercedes Benz C-Class Launched In India

Globally unveiled last year, the new-generation Mercedes Benz C-Class finally entered the local market. The upgraded saloon is offered in three variants: C200 Avantgarde, C220d Avantgarde, and C300d AMG Line, priced at Rs 55 lakh, Rs 56 lakh, and Rs 61 lakh, respectively.

2022 Mercedes Benz C-Class: Design and Features

The fifth-gen Mercedes C-Class has received an entirely new build that harmonizes with the flagship S-Class that’s why it is also called the baby S-Class. It sports a typical Mercedes grille up front, flanked by a pair of sleek LED high-performance headlights with adaptive high beam assist. The silhouette of the car is largely similar to its outgoing model, albeit with cleaner and smoother curves and creases. It rides on new 5-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels. On the other hand, the top-spec C300d trim comes with an AMG Line package, featuring sporty elements, a differently styled front grille, 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, and a panoramic sunroof.
