Mercedes Benz India is making an exclusive preview of the new 2015 C Class at the country’s maiden 2014 CeBIT computer expo, the world’s leading Business IT event. The CeBIT India will be held in Bengaluru between 12-14th of November. Moreover, the new 2015 C Class will be launched in India on 25th of November and will compete with the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
The new C CLass has a striking resemblance to its flagship sibling S Class, courtesy to the new design language which both the sedans follow. Comparing it to the on-going car, the new C (baby S Class) has a more youthful presence and looks flamboyant and premium than ever! The interiors of the car offers a less-claustrophobic design and is also premiering a new infotainment system - Audio 20 Version 5.1. The system features an improved interface and also sports a touch pad.
Commenting on the upcoming exclusive preview the new C Class at CeBIT, Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India, “The new C-Class sets a new benchmark with its technological and design advancement. We thought CeBIT is the right platform to showcase the technological prowess of the new C-Class as well as a prime example of how the latest generation telematics and IT systems are well integrated in Mercedes-Benz cars. The C-Class clearly redefines the segment altogether and sets a newer benchmark in terms of technological accomplishment of Mercedes-Benz. We are confident that the new C-Class which makes its India debut on November 25, 2014 will continue its success story and remain on top of our customer’s preference list.”
Speaking about the engines of 2015 C Class, Mercedes will initially launch the sedan only with a petrol engine while the diesel is expected early next year. Petrol motor is likely to be a 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder mill producing nearly 208bhp with a peak torque of 350Nm. Diesel on the other hand will get a 2.2 liter motor chucking out power close to 168bhp with 400Nm of peak torque.
