The new Mercedes-Benz GLC
The new Mercedes-Benz GLC is based on the C-Class platform and is bigger than the GLK-Class. It looks identical to the sedan, when seen from the front. The new GLC features a twin-slat grille with an imposing three-pointed star emblem on the centre. Also similar to the C-Class are the LED daytime running lights. The overall design of the new GLC looks impressive with a smart profile and muscular haunches.
The GLC is 30mm shorter than the new C-Class in length but has a longer wheelbase. The cabin of the GLC will get the layout of the C-Class. Features include a gesture controlled touchpad to operate the infotainment screen, a 20-CD audio system and Artico leather upholstery. The engine options in the GLC will be the 2.2-litre diesel in the GLC 220d and the 2.0-litre diesel in the 250d.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class cabriolet
The interior of this open-top isn't just lifted off the Sonderklasse but has been completely redesigned. The three-layer soft-top can be raised and lowered at speeds of up to 60kmph in less than 20 seconds. The NVH levels, as claimed by Mercedes-Benz, are lowest when it's driven topless. The climate control system makes sure that the temperature of the cabin is maintained, irrespective of whether the roof is raised or lowered. The S 500 cabriolet will be powered by a 4,663cc V8 that makes 455PS of power between 5,250 and 5,500rpm.
The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard will be the most exclusive product in the armored luxury car segment in India, available with a host of customisation options. Racing enthusiasts can look forward to the the FIA World Championship-winning F1 W06 hybrid car.
Roland Folger, managing director and CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, The Auto Expo is the much awaited platform for manufacturers, automotive enthusiasts and customers and it has been growing in importance with each edition. This year Mercedes-Benz will showcase its range of 'winning' products and we are excited to unveil the much awaited GLC and the S-Class Cabriolet. The Mercedes-Benz pavilion will be an amalgamation of innovation in design, vibrant energy and will reflect modern luxury which is core of the brand ethos of the three pointed star. Customers and enthusiasts can expect some real excitement and fascination at the Mercedes-Benz pavilion."
