The locally produced version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan has recently went on sale in India.

Mercedes-Benz has announced the launch of the 2015 C-Class in India, as the model in question is being locally produced. The vehicle is carrying a starting price of 40.90 lakh, or the equivalent of 53,000 euros, at the current exchange rates. The car has been produced using advanced fabrication techniques and lighter materials and the one pictured above is in the C200 version, carrying a 2-liter turbo petrol burner under its hood with 184 HP, connected to a 7-speed transmission, sending power to the rear wheels.

Production of the model is made locally and the plan is to introduce a diesel version too, early next year. This is believed to be the C220 BlueTEC, with its 170 HP and 400 Nm of torque, achieving a fuel consumption of 6.9 liters burned every 100 km, a significant improvement compared to the old similar model. The design of the new C-Class generation is an evolution and the front fascia has been inspired by the one of the new S-Class. The interior design is simple and also elegant, providing the driver and passengers with all the necessary tech.
