Having introduced a facelift for the current-gen C-class just late last year, Mercedes-Benz has now increased the equipment available on the diesel offerings - the C 300d AMG Line and C 220d Progressive - which are now priced at Rs 49.50 lakh and 46.50 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom India). Prices have gone up by Rs 1 lakh for the C 300d AMG Line and Rs 2.25 lakh for the C 220d.
Starting with the C 300d AMG Line, it now features Mercedes’ ‘Night Package’, which essentially adds high-gloss black inserts on the louvre on the front bumper and an AMG specific front apron and rear bumper. The pack also includes 18-inch AMG 5-spoke alloy wheels finished in black. Other new features include a wireless phone charger in the central console, a Midline sound system with 9 speakers paired with a 225 W amplifier, and lastly a 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster with three display styles – Classic, Progressive and Sporty.
Coming to the new features added to the C 220d Progressive, these include a wireless phone charger, a Midline sound system, a 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster and a memory package for the driver and front passenger’s electrically adjustable seats, which can be programmed to store up to three different seating positions.
In terms of engines, both the C 220d Progressive and the C 300d AMG Line come with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder BS6-compliant turbo-diesel engine. However, the engine produces 245hp and 500Nm of torque in the C 300d while making 194hp and 400Nm of torque in the C 200d. Both cars have Mercedes’ 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox as standard.
The Mercedes C-class rivals the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and the Jaguar XE in the Indian market.
