Mercedes-Benz has launched a locally assembled version of the GLC crossover with prices starting at Rs 47.90 lakh. The car is now available in three variants and is the ninth model to be assembled at the German automaker’s factory near Pune.
To bring down the price of the locally assembled model as compared to the CBU derived units that have been on sale since June, Mercedes-Benz has omitted some of the features from the crossover. This has allowed them to reduce Rs 8 lakh as compared to the CBU diesel and the locally assembled 220d style. It is a similar story with the 220d Sport and 300 Sport petrol where the price difference is Rs 3.5 lakh and four lakh respectively.
The reduced feature list comprises a two-zone climate control, standard seats and no option for maps in the COMAND infotainment system. Also missing are some of the colour options as well as the automatic tail gate. Finally, the newly introduced Style variant gets a different design for the alloy wheels.
