Mercedes-Benz will launch its C-class facelift soon

  • Published On: 31 August 2018

New-generation petrol and diesel engines will debut on this car.

The India launch of the updated C-class will take place on September 20, 2018. The updated car comes with a few tweaks to the bumpers and new designs for the alloy wheels.

There will be two variations of all-LED headlights on offer, and the tail-lights will sport a new LED pattern. The cabin will now come with a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, a 10.25-inch high-resolution screen for the COMAND infotainment system and a new-design steering wheel.

The big news, the cars will come with new and updated engines. Instead of the 2.0-litre turbo-petrol motor as in the current C 200, it'll come with a new, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. The smaller engine puts out a similar 184hp as the 2.0-litre, and 280Nm of torque, just 20Nm down on the outgoing engine. The diesel will be the all-new 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit available in two states of tune. The C 220d will be like the E 220d's 194hp and 400Nm, while the twin-turbo C 250d will be replaced by a C 300d, a twin-turbo version of the 2.0-litre OM654, that will make around 245hp. Both diesel engines are BS-VI-compliant. The cars will also get the new, 9-speed, 9G-Tronic auto 'box, which replaces the old 7G-Tronic unit.

Prices for the C-class facelift are likely to go up by a lakh or two more than the outgoing model.
