Mercedes has announced the commencement of bookings for the 2022 C-Class in India starting today. The luxury sedan will be introduced to the market on 10th May.
Interestingly, the German marque says between 13th and 30th April, only its existing customers can book the BMW 3-Series rival, while others can book the car from 1st May.

Mercedes has set the token amount to book the new generation C-Class (code-named W206) at Rs. 50,000/-. Remember, the car is going to set foot on Indian soil more than a year after its global unveil took place.
The fifth-generation C-Class, comes with all-new design inside and out and with tonnes of new age features and safety tech, with many borrowed directly from the S-Class.
For example, the car has a 12.3-inch digital cluster, a 11.9-inch touchscreen for the MBUX infotainment system, among several other features on the inside and top-notch LED lights on the exterior.

Finally, the C300d uses the same oil burner but with higher outputs of 261 HP and 550 Nm. All the engines have an integrated starter-generator (ISG) and come teamed to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
