Mercedes Benz C Class

Mercedes Benz C Class available in 4 variants

Mercedes has launched C-class diesel saloon in India in price range of Rs 39.9 – 42.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Available in two trim levels: C 220 CDI Style and C220 CDI Avantgarde, company has tried to offer best of affordability and exclusivity through this new diesel version. Power to rear wheels of both trims is derived from 2.2-litre diesel engine that has enough might to meet most of the situations the saloon is expected to face in its life time. Transmission option is 7-speed automatic that is designed to channelize the might to rear wheels smoothly and without sacrificing on efficiency. Externally and internally C-class diesel looks and feels upmarket and has snob value slightly higher than what its segment rivals have on offer. Mercedes has very cleverly used the design inspiration from its flagship S-class to design C-class that has indeed helped in lifting overall ambience of the cabin. In addition to affordability of diesel engine, Mercedes C-class diesel boasts of quite high efficiency as it claims to return average of 19.27 km/l.

Another popular line of compact executive cars manufactured by Daimler AG, the C Class was introduced in 1993 and it officially replaced the 190 (W201) range. It remained the smallest model for Mercedes line up until the launch of first generation A Class in 1997.

The first generation C Class cars were sedans and station wagons but the second generation (W203) appeared in a fastback/hatchback coupe version and this when facelifted later, became known as Mercedes Benz CLC Class. It was manufactured till 2011 but was again replaced by a C Class coupe (based on W204) for 2012 model year.

In its third generation, the C Class brought the package of conventional Merc qualities namely comfort and elegance in an assertive and sporty avatar. And the 2011 variant C200 CGI now has a rationalised and trendy approach in its style while also reflecting the traditional values of its family. The diesel trims C 220 CDI and C 250 CDI also boast of high luxury quotient and cushy ride quality.

With its L shaped headlamps, the C Class gets a sleek yet aggressive front profile. LED turn indicator strips also span the entire base width of these headlamps. The softly sculpted bumper shares its design cues with the more upmarket E Class. Big air dams draw attention and add to the beauty of design in front. Instead of fog lamps, these have LED daytime running lights set on horizontal bands. With its broad and long bonnet, the C class sports an athletic and confident look.

On its sides some features that look borrowed from the elder sibling E class include the big ORVMs and the 17 inch, 10 spoke stylised alloy wheels. At the rear, the C Class still maintains its original simplistic yet pleasing design but the new tail lamps have been augmented with LEDs.

Mercedes Benz C Class uses more of aluminium and that reduces 9.2 kilograms of bonnet weight and some more from front wings and door panels.

Get into the cabin and almost everything about the design and quality of materials mesmerises you. The chrome touches on the steering wheel & dashboard, around the AC vents and gear lever stick ooze style and refinement in black interiors. Once again the fascia design in this Merc replicates some parts of the E Class dash in a smaller form – for instance the trapezoidal vents, the common mantle for the LCD screen & instrument cluster, as also the white dials. Steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls greet the driver.

The central screen has high resolution and controls the Bluetooth and the music system. To access the concealed USB slot, you just need to open the central glove box. The central screen of the speedometer dial has high resolution LCD displays for ESP, Park Assist functions, clock and cabin temperature. 

There is ample legroom and headroom on all seats. Electrical adjustments for height and lumbar support on front seats help in choosing an ergonomic sitting position. Climate control, steering wheel adjustment convenience, and parking sensors are just few elements in the long list of comfort features that have been fitted this luxury sedan. 
The C Class has been equipped with high grade safety components that comprise 6 airbags, anti lock braking system, electronic stability program and traction control. 
Petrol powered C 200 Elegance and Avantgarde variants of Mercedes Class are driven by 1796 cc, 4 cylinder motor. For the diesel CDI 220 models it’s a 2143 cc 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine. All cars have 7 speed automatic transmission for smooth driveability. 
You can choose between colours like Obsidian Black, Palladium Silver and Calcite White for your C Class. And the price range for this luxury sedan falls between Rs 32.75 lakhs and 39.16 lakhs (ex showroom price Delhi). But the high end trim C 63 AMG edition with 6208 cc V8 engine costs a whooping Rs 92.72 lakhs (ex showroom price Delhi).
In 2007, the year in which third generation C Class made its debut, it was awarded Car of the Year in Australia by Wheels Magazine. Merc edged out Ford Mondeo and Mazda 2 for this accolade. It was also chosen as the "Executive Car of the Year" by Top Gear Magazine in 2007 Top Gear Awards. The 2007–08 and 2011-12 Japan`s Import Car of the Year honour also went to Mercedes Benz C Class. The C 63 AMG was recognised as Europe Tuning Car of the Year 2008 by members of the UIGA, the Italian association of motoring correspondents.
Chic design, sensible ergonomics, opulent cabin, comfortable ride and pleasant performance – the Merc C Class meets and exceeds the expectations of luxury car buyers in almost all categories.
