Mercedes Benz C Class AMG performance edition with added sports package here: India waits for B Class Sports Tourer (hatchback)
German automakers Mercedes Benz have launched their new Mercedes Benz C Class AMG performance edition with added sports package on Thursday for a base price of Rs.35.90 lakhs. This new vehicle is one of the most aggressive vehicles to date promising enhanced handling and efficient dynamics. Mercedes Benz B Class, A Class and E Class launches in the Indian luxury auto market are expected next.
Mercedes C Class variant has been though a series of makeovers ever since it was launched in 2001. The company has sold over 15000 units here, and is looking to expand sales with the new entrant in the market.
The Mercedes Benz C Class AMG performance edition with added sports package comes to you as a major performer where road presence and safety and comfort features are concerned. The vehicle comes with AMG styling both in front and at the rear and will have 17” twin spoke light alloy wheels while its steering wheel will be fitted with 12 function keys.
Mercedes Benz is a major auto player in the Indian luxury market. Performance in terms of sales volume in India saw Mercedes Benz lose their 2nd position in India to Audi. It is the company’s endeavor to concentrate on new products and increasing their network penetration in the Indian market. Last month Mercedes Benz also launched their third generation M Class SUV which is priced between Rs.56.9 lakhs to Rs.66 lakhs. While interest rates have not spiralled out of control, rupee depreciation is certainly affecting profitability.It is clear that Mercedes Benz is not trying to bring in volumes by offering vehicles at lower proce points currently. That approach will fall in place once the Mercedes Benz B Class Sports tourer(hatchback) is introducedin India.
