Mercedes-Benz India has finally launched the C-Class 2.0-litre petrol at a starting price of Rs 40.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new C200 2.0-litre petrol replaces the C-Class 1.5-litre petrol-electric mild-hybrid model. The 1.5-litre petrol-electric mild-hybrid engine was introduced with C200 facelift. However, this power plant was co-developed by Daimler and the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance. The outgoing 1.5-litre petrol-electric mild-hybrid powertrain develops 181bhp of power and 280 Nm of peak torque.
The new sedan is now more powerful than its BS4 sibling
On the other hand, the new BS6-compliant 2.0-litre petrol mill puts out 203 PS of peak power at 5,800-6,100 rpm, while the torque figures are not revealed yet. The new Mercedes-Benz C200 can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 7.7 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 239 kmph. The kerb weight of the sedan has been increased by 40kgs, because of the introduction of a heavier gasoline engine. Just like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 1.5-litre petrol-electric mild-hybrid model, the new C200 will be offered in the Prime and Progressive grades. The prime grade will employ features like LED headlights, electric sunroof, electrically adjustable front seats, a touchscreen infotainment system with a 10.25-inch full-HD display, Avantgarde interior, rear electric roller-blind and 64-colour ambient lighting.

The Progressive variant gets added features like wireless phone charging pad, 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster, Active Parking Assist with Parktronic, memory function for the electrically adjustable driver’s seat, 225-watt 9-speaker midline sound system and much more. The new Mercedes C200 Prime varaint is priced at Rs 40.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), while the top-spec Progressive trim carries a price tag of Rs 46.54 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
