It looks like, Mercedes-Benz is on a spree to improve its lineup in the country, as there are multiple launches in the country this year. Now it is the C-Class and top of the line S-Class Cabriolet. The C-Class Cabriolet is priced at INR 60 lakh while the top-end S-Class Cabriolet comes at a whopping price tag of INR 2.25 crore (all prices ex-showroom). Talking about the C-Class, it comes with C300 badging and equipped with a 2.0-litre turbo, four-cylinder petrol engine. The same engine powers the locally manufactured GLC 300 SUV and delivers 245 hp maximum power. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard with the option of Dynamic Select.
