The fourth generation C-Class (W205) will be Mercedes’ tenth launch this year and has been the company’s most successful product in the country.
All set to take on the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and the Volvo S60, Mercedes-Benz India has confirmed the next generation C-Class for launch on 25th November in the country. Based on the MRA platform, the new C-Class comes with a more S-Class inspired, sophisticated and beautiful styling while the interiors have been further updated with more luxury packed inside. Mercedes India’s most successful model, the new C-Class will certainly be grabbing a whole lot of attention from its rivals in the segment when it goes on sale. We were the first to break the news of the launch months back while Mercedes maintained the launch will happen in 2015.

The 2015 Mercedes C-Class has grown in size being 95 mm longer, while the wheelbase too has increased by 80 mm, compared to the outgoing model. The increase in length also shows up inside the cabin that has been completely revamped and now comes with a new dashboard, propeller themed air-con vents, multi-function 3-spoke steering wheel, 8.4-inch heads-up display unit, touchpad interface and an updated COMAND system. In addition, Mercedes will also provide a plethora of safety and driver assist systems including Adaptive Braking system, Collision Prevention Assist, Attention Assist and much more.
Powering the 2015 Mercedes C-Class will be the improved 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol motor producing 184 HP of power and 300 Nm of torque as well as the 2.1-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine churning out 170 HP of power and 400 Nm of torque. Both the engine options will come paired to a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission as standard. However, the company will only be launching the petrol variant of the C-Class initially while the diesel version is expected to follow in early 2015. We expect to see a marginal change in prices as well on the 2015 model. The current C-Class range starts at Rs. 33.45 lakhs going up to Rs. 40.50 lakhs for the Grand Edition (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
