Top 10 Sedans in India   

( Part 7 in series )

 

Mercedes-Benz introduced the new C-Class in India, to ward off the competition from its traditional German rivals, the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4. Internally called W205, the new C-Class was globally launched in early 2014, though the German manufacturer refrained from launching it here till the year end, as the previous generation C-Class was still doing well in India. 

 

Exterior

Mercedes-Benz has taken a completely new approach towards the design of the new C-Class. The company has ditched the previous car’s conservative looks for a new design, which looks heavily inspired by the new S-Class.

The design has been also influenced by aerodynamics to keep wind resistance at a minimum level. 

The side profile gets a strong shoulder line, which divides the profile into three sections- window and door handles, door profile and skirt line running in line with the wheels. The new C-Class is offered in five colours – cavansite blue, citrine brown, polar white, iridium silver and obsidian black.

 

Interior

While the layout of the new C-Class’ interior is similar to that of the previous car, we can see signs of the company’s new design philosophy. Standard creature comforts include a tablet-like screen, climate control, panoramic sunroof and the latest version of the COMAND infotainment system. 

Rear seat passengers get individual temperature zones. The rear seats get a 60:40 split which adds to the car’s practicality. Boot space at 480 litres is on par with the competition. 

The gauges are partially digital and feature a large central display which shows most of the options of the car. The interior also gets three colour ambient lighting, a reversing camera, panoramic sliding sunroof, keyless go starting function and an illuminated boot.

 

Engine

The C-Class is currently offered in a single C200 CGI variant which is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine which churns out 181bhp and 300Nm of torque.

The engine powers the rear through Mercedes-Benz’s tried and tested 7G-TRONIC PLUS gearbox. It accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in 7.3 seconds with a top speed of 235kmph.

Drivers can choose between Comfort, Economy, Sport, Sport+, or Individual driving modes, which adjust the engine, transmission and steering characteristics.

We expect the diesel variants of the C-Class to be launched in March 2015.
