Mercedes-Benz is all set to launch its new C-Class facelift in India. The facelift version of the C-class will come to India in October 2018. The facelift version of the sedan offering from Mercedes-Benz was first showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class facelift comes with a host of mechanical and tech updates. It will also feature minor cosmetic changes on both the interior and exterior of the sedan.
The international-spec of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class facelift comes with minor design update on the bumpers and wheels. The facelift sedan offers full-LED headlamps and a new LED pattern on the taillamps.
Inside, the facelift C-Class sedan now comes with the option of digital dials and a 10.25-inch COMAND infotainment unit. The sedan will also feature a dual touchpad unit as seen on the E and S-Class facelifts.
However, it is still yet to be confirmed if the Indian-spec Mercedes-Benz C-Class facelift will receive all these new features, once launched in the country.
Other features on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class: panoramic sunroof, five driving modes, dual-zone climate control and a Burmester audio system.
The C-class also includes safety features such as seven airbags, adaptive braking, attention assist, parking assist and a reverse camera.
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class will come in three trims: C 200 petrol, C 220d diesel and the C 250d twin-turbo diesel.
The C 200 petrol option will come with a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine. This new power unit will replace the old 2.0-litre petrol engine seen in the current generation. The new engine is said to produce 184bhp and 280Nm of torque.
The diesel options on the C-Class facelift will come with the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine. This engine will be further available in two power outputs. The first is the C 200d, which produces 194bhp and 400Nm of torque. While the larger twin-turbo C 250d will produce 254bhp.
The new C 250d variant replaces the older C 300d model. All three engines will further come mated to the new 9G-Tronic gearbox.
