Mercedes Benz India has confirmed that the next generation C-Class will arrive here on 25th November. However, the car will be previewed next week from 12 – 14th November at CeBIT exhibition in Bangalore. Following are more details from the press release:

Mercedes-Benz India will have a special preview of the new C-Class luxury sedan at CeBIT India 2014, the world’s leading Business IT event. The new C-Class which will make its India debut on November 25, 2014 is all set to create new benchmark in the luxury sedan segment in India. Whether the use of excellent interior sound engineering and aero acoustics, or be it the market premiere of the new generation Infotainment System “Audio 20 Version 5.1” with a completely new ergonomic interface featuring a touch pad, the new C-Class will exceed customer expectations in technological innovations. The new C-Class takes engineering and use of technology to the next generation creating an unsurpassable experience for the driver.

Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “The new C-Class sets a new benchmark with its technological and design advancement. We thought CeBIT is the right platform to showcase the technological prowess of the new C-Class as well as a prime example of how the latest generation telematics and IT systems are well integrated in Mercedes-Benz cars. The C-Class clearly redefines the segment altogether and sets a newer benchmark in terms of technological accomplishment of Mercedes-Benz. We are confident that the new C-Class which makes its India debut on November 25, 2014 will continue its success story and remain on top of our customer’s preference list.”

Drive Safe,

A cute looking baby S-Class from Benz. The new C-class in the pics looks far more contemporary and refined aesthetically.

Vibhor, 1 request, when ever you plan to do a Official review do let me know. Will love to join and experience the Benz's aura.

There is a Benz showroom in Noida too in Sector 8. Lets red-line this C-class after launch what say?

As usual indian version has been stripped of the variable suspension, hud and many stuffs like that. We don't get the ones with black interior and red seats which we have been finding in their add on youtube for some time.
In india we always pay more and get the least.

But the pricing of c class is too high right. There was a time when 3 series c class and a4 prices started from 30L. I think those days were gone long back.

‘IT is everywhere’ has been a philosophy within the company for quite some time, acknowledging that without the support of state-of-the-art IT solutions, important activities such as product development, order processing, production, simulation, testing, aftersales-service, billing and payment cannot be done successfully.

“Our customers expect not only appealing design, outstanding quality and superb performance from a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, they also like to stay connected, entertained and informed when using their vehicles”, explained Eberhard Kern, MD and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India. “We offer our customers an ideal in-car infotainment system and the new C-Class sets benchmark in terms of integrating next generation telematics and IT systems. We are constantly implementing the latest technologies available, up to the stage where we are a front-runner in the development of semi-autonomous and autonomous driving.”

Manu Saale, MD and CEO of MBRDI emphasised: “We are very proud to be an important contributor within the global RD and IT network at Mercedes-Benz. MBRDI has grown from strength to strength and with over 2,000 associates, we contribute to our global vehicle development with our vast experience. This includes working on Design, Simulations, E&E, Testing, IT applications development and IT services and as such we play an important part to assure top customer satisfaction globally - and as well here in India.”

Digital Life has entered all fields of daily social life. This mega-trend has impact to Mercedes-Benz and its business model, products and competitiveness. Communication with customers and target groups can be done more diversely and effectively than ever before. New business fields with new services can be created in the transportation sector. There are opportunities in all fields of corporate life – and behind all processes operates a clever IT system.

“In line with our global IT-strategy, we further develop our IT-department into a worldwide organization with strong international teams, representing a striking variety of skills, know-how and foreign cultures, “ explains Helmut Schütt, CIO DaimlerTrucks, Buses and Vans, “for example here in Bangalore we already have a significant footprint in various IT-domains, such as a ‘Shared Service Center‘ for SAP applications, as well as developments for mobility services, computer simulations and augmented reality – and we are further expanding our presence”.
