Mercedes-Benz has launched a special limited edition C-class, dubbed the Edition C, in an effort to expand its model line-up and also spur buyer interest amid the ongoing festive season. The C-class ‘Edition C’ is valued at Rs.42.54 lakh for the C 200 Avantgarde, Rs.43.54 lakh for the C-220 d Avantgarde and Rs.46.87 lakh for the C 250 d Avantgarde (all prices are ex -showroom, India). The special limited edition variant is not accessible on the C-200 Style. The Edition C models are offered with the option of a good-looking red paint scheme, called Hyacinth red, and come with a host of beautifying additions that differentiate them from the standard C-class. Exterior upgrades include basics such as a front lip spoiler, back spoiler and five-spoke alloys finished in black.
Also emphasizing the sporty look are black highlighted front twin louvers, mirror housings, beltline and side skirts. In addition, the sedans get an ‘Edition C’ exterior badge. On the inside, the cabin of the special edition C-class is now finished in black ash wood (from the C 63 S), and stainless steel pedals and Garmin Map Pilot SD card navigation are now standard across all Edition C variants. Both are an optional extra on the standard C-class models. The carmaker has also announced that the C-class has sold 27,500 units since its debut in India, where it rivals the likes of the BMW 3-series, Audi A4 and Volvo S60.
