Upcoming Mercedes-Benz Cars To Be Launched in India in 2016
2016 Mercedes-AMG A45
Essentially the big bad brother of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the 2016 AMG A45 has been shying away from the Indian car market for quite some time now. Introduced with the 2016 A-Class, the new Mercedes-AMG A45 will finally find its way to India sometime in early 2016. Along with the style and comfort additions of the standard A-Class, the new AMG A45 comes with a lot more firepower under the hood, which reportedly makes it the most powerful production hatchback.
The car is powered by a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine that has been re-tuned to offer 376bhp and 475Nm of peak torque, while transmission duties are carried out by an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sport gearbox. According to Mercedes-AMG, the 2016 A45 can do a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.2 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than predecessor.
Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe
The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is probably one of the most anticipated luxury crossovers that is yet hit the Indian car market. Likely to be launched in the Indian car market sometime next year, unlike the standard GLE, the Coupe version will reach the Indian shores via the CBU route.
Powered by a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbo diesel engine, the Mercedes-Benz GLE churns out 255bhp of power and develops 620Nm of torque. The engine comes paired to a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic gearbox and the 4MATIC AWD system as part of standard equipment.
2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
The new 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the next flagship executive sedan from the Stuttgart-based luxury carmaker, which will soon hit the car markets around the world. Expected to make its global debut at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show, the new E-Class will probably reach the Indian car market towards to latter half of 2016. The upcoming model is 55mm longer than the one currently on sale and comes with a new characteristic Multibeam LED headlamps and aerodynamically enhanced design. The car has been built using high-strength steel and aluminium that has reduced its weight by over 100 Kg.
Under the hood, the new E-Class is expected to get the new generation four-cylinder diesel engine, and a new six-cylinder diesel and petrol. Though initially the car will reach India via CBU route, Mercedes will soon begin the India-assembly at its Pune plant.
