Nothing really exiting.. 201 BHP doesn't sound like much for the premium pricing. Would be interested in knowing 0 - 100 figures considering 500 nm of torque.

So basically M-B's answer to Maruti's ALTO UTSAV edition that was also just launched?

This doesn't sound too fascinating to be honest. I didn't quite understand whats the significance of "Edition C". What does the "C" stand for? Perhaps I'm too naive. Just paint job and cosmetic changes?

The C Class is really losing out in volumes to the Audis and BMWs. Not exactly because of the pricing but because Mercedes has lost its way in making cars that "LOOK" exciting.

I don't know about this Edition C, but I have a regular C250d. Claimed 0-100 is 6.6 seconds.

But one thing I know - One will scream or grin ear-to-ear when you push the pedal to the metal. 500 NM of torque in a highway drive is bliss

I'd have loved to have this red color though (I have a blue one)
