Mercedes-Benz to launch the C-Class C220 CDI tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz to launch the C-Class C220 CDI tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz is going to launch the diesel version of its executive class sedan, the C-Class C220 CDI, in India, tomorrow. While the C220 CDI will be initially sold here as a completely built unit (CBU) along with the petrol variant, we expect the German manufacturer to start locally assembling the car at its Pune facility, before the end of this year.

While the C-Class C200 CGI petrol variant was launched here last year, the company had stopped short of introducing its diesel variant in the Indian market. The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been a huge success globally and the car’s high demand in other countries can be the explanation of Mercedes-Benz’s decision. The C220 CDI will be powered by the tried and tested 2.2-litre diesel engine which delivers 170bhp and 400Nm of torque through the familiar 7G-TRONIC gearbox. 

The C220 CDI will be the second three-pointed star car to be launched in India this year. With 13 more models in the pipeline, Mercedes-Benz is aggressively expanding its presence in the Indian market, with the aim of grabbing a bite of the rapidly growing luxury car industry. We expect the C220 CDI to be marginally expensive than the C200 CGI variant. It will compete with the BMW 3 Series and the Audi A4.
