It was 2018 when Mercedes-Benz introduced the facelifted C-class that is being currently available and the brand has decided to add on a few more offerings for the Diesel variants that will soon go on sale. Both, the C300d AMG and the 220d progressive now tick more box than earlier. But on that, later. It goes without saying that the 2019 Mercedes C-Class prices have gone up, precisely Rs. 1 Lakh for the C300d AMG and Rs. 2.25 Lakhs for the C 220d (all prices ex-showroom).
The aforementioned list of updates includes a ‘Night Package’ for the Mercedes-Benz C300d AMG. It includes intense gloss black inserts on the front bumper louvre and an AMG specific apron for at the front and a rear bumper.
The C 300d AMG now sits on 18-inch AMG 5-spoke alloy wheels wearing black paint. Electronic additions include a wireless phone charger located in the central console, a Midline sound system having 9 speakers paired with a 225W amplifier and a 12.3-inch digital display with three layouts- Classic, Progressive, and Sporty.
Like mentioned in the beginning the Mercedes-Benz C 220d Progressive also gets added features. The wireless phone charger, Midline sound system, 12.3-inch digital display remain common. The C 220d gets a memory package for default seat adjustments of the driver and the front seat passenger. The said feature allows you to store three different seating positions.
When talking about power, the 2019 Mercedes C-Class continues with the C 220d Progressive variant and churns out a good 194 BHP of power and 400 Nm of torque from the 2.0-litre 4 cylinder BS6 compliant turbo-diesel engine. Though the C 330d shares the same 2.0-litre BS6 compliant turbo-diesel engine, it pumps out a good 245 BHP of power and 500 Nm of torque. Both the variants come standard with the Mercedes 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox. The talked models will compete against the BMW 3 series, Audi A4 and the Jaguar XE in India.
