      MBIL to launch new C-class on September 01

      Last week we saw 2 German marquee launching new products and this has made MBIL to come with a launch, Yes MBIL is all set to launch all new C-Class this September.The car will be launched on September 1st at an event in Delhi. The new Mercedes- Benz C-Class gets few changes to the exterior including new headlights and bumpers. The mid-life makeover is aimed at freshening up the old C-Class to take on the upcoming new models from the rivals. The chief among which is the new BMW 3-Series which will debut at the Frankfurt motor show in mid-September. As far as the changes are concerned, the new C-Class gets redesigned headlights and front bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights.

      Rest of the car is similar to the current model that is on sale at the moment. Not much has changed under the hood either. The C-Class will get an optional of two diesels and one petrol engine. The 1.8 litre 4 cylinder petrol engine puts out 186 bhp and 285 Nm of torque. The base diesel gets a 2.2 litre engine putting out 170 bhp and 400 Nm while the top-of-the-line diesel with a 2.2 litre capacity puts out 204 bhp and 500 Nm. Mercedes-Benz India also offer the hotter and madder C63 AMG version to its Indian customers. A refreshed version of the 6.3 litre V8 monster will be available later on

      Inside the car, the interior has been reworked to keep up with latest Mercedes-Benz traditions of interior design. Audi too is preparing a facelift for the Audi A4 along with BMW. It will be interesting to see when BMW launch the new 3-Series in India after its worldwide debut at Frankfurt. Among the triad of German luxury cars, the BMW seems to have got the biggest makeover this time. The new Audi A4 will get new headlights designed on the lines of the new Audi A6 which was launched recently. That said, Prices of all the three cars are expected to be competitive.

      With my budget I can think of anything above the Executive. This model has a less powerful engine than the Elegance & Avantgrade. I haven't driven the Executive. The Avantgrade more or less matches the 320D. So not too keen on the less powerful engine of the Executive. The Corporate Edition of the 320D on the other hand has the same engine as the higher variants. Waiting for the new 3 series to be launched.

      I have asked for the TD. Will be able to do it once the TD car comes from Pune. However leaning towards BMW because of BSI. Audi does not have a dealer in Goa. They will be opening an A.S.S. by december though.

      A friend of a friend is selling a Mercedes Benz C250. I have seen the car in the past once but not driven it. He says it's a 6 cylinder petrol, gives single digit milege and is very powerful. I searched the net for the C250 petrol and all the results give a 1.8 L 4 cylinder engine. Now is this car a rebadged C230 Avantgarde V6?
      Test Drive - Mercedes Benz C230 Avantgarde
      The car is a 2011 model and he's quoting 15 Lakhs. If it is the V6, how much is it worth?

      V6 Petrol is the 350 variant, comes in E Class onwards. If its the W204 C250 Petrol, it must be the 1.8 liter turbocharged engine producing 201 BHP.
      Although, I don't remember MBI selling C250 Petrol in 2011.

      My W205 C200 also averages single digit. But is hoot to drive!

      There was a C350 too but not in India.

      That is what Google results show. But there was a thread on TBHP about the C250 petrol and it was mentioned that MB had changed the nomenclature so the C230 Avantgarde (2.3 L V6) was changed to C250. The for sale is definitely a 6 cylinder. I presume it's a V6 as I have not heard of a Mercedes Benz 6 cylinder inline. Anyway I've asked for the VIN number and photos, so lets see.

      My W205 C200 also averages single digit. But is hoot to drive!
      Not sure about the W204 or 205 but this is the model after the one with twin round headlamps and the model before the present generation C Class.
