Mercedes launches the C-Class Grand Edition
...as a celebration to rolling out 50,000 cars in India. We have details and prices...
Mercedes kept 2013 interesting with its numerous launches, and it doesn't look like they're planning on slowing down anytime soon. After launching the new S-Class just a few weeks back, Mercedes has today launched a special edition C-Class, dubbed the Grand Edition.
But before we get to what makes this C-Class so grand, it would be apt to mention that the reason for celebration is Mercedes' 50,000th car roll-out in India. No prizes for guessing that the 50,000th car was the C-Class Grand Edition, pictured above in their Chakan plant.
So, the Grand Edition comes with AMG body styling, which includes front and rear apron, side sill panels and 17-inch light alloy wheels with black AMG hub caps. There's also the Grand Edition badge on the wings with chromed tailpipe trims. The inside gets a bit of a brushed metal finish, with addition of features like panoramic sunroof, a 4.5-inch display in the instrument cluster with satnav. Before you ask, the Grand Edition remains mechanically unchanged.
The Mercedes C-Class Grand Edition is priced at Rs 39.16 lakh for the C220 CDI (diesel), and Rs 36.81 lakh for the C200 petrol variant respectively. All prices are ex-Showroom Mumbai.
A pretty grand gesture by Mercedes right before the Auto Expo, don't you agree TopGearheads? Here's our review of the C-Class diesel, in case you were curious.
