The new C-Class will be offered with a mild-hybrid setup with all its powertrains.

Mercedes-Benz India has revealed that the production of its upcoming sedan, the new fifth-gen C-Class, has already started at its plant in Chakan, Pune. 

Mercedes-Benz will offer the new C-Class in three variants – the C200, C200d, and C300d. The C200 will be the petrol offering, whereas both the C200d and C300d will be powered by diesel. It is expected that all variants will be powered by a bunch of 2.0-litre engines, and a 9-speed torque converter is expected to be standard across the line-up. It is also expected that all engines will come with a 48V mild-hybrid setup, which will boost both performance and efficiency.

As far as design is concerned, the new car looks a lot like other cars in the Mercedes family. In fact, Mercedes-Benz is calling the C-Class the ‘Baby S’ – a reference to how similar it looks to Merc’s halo sedan. The new sedan is also larger than the outgoing car in every aspect, with the most crucial area being the wheelbase. More space between the wheels is expected to translate into more space inside the cabin, which will add to the experience of being chauffeur-driven.

In terms of competition, the new C-Class will lock horns with the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Volvo S60, and Jaguar XE.
