The Edition C pack offers AMG body kits and many other optional extras for a nominal increase in the price to celebrate the sale of 10 million C-Class cars.

The C Class family has achieved a significant milestone in its history as its sales crossed the 10 million mark this month. The C Class branding was first used in 1993 and the current model series (consisting of sedan, estate and coupe) alone has registered over 2.3 million units ever since its launch in 2007.

Speaking on achievement, Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing Mercedes-Benz Cars said -

Launched as the ‘Baby Benz’, the C-Class is now one of the most popular cars in the premium segment. The innovative engineering and impressive efficiency of the C-Class have been inspiring our customers for more than 30 years.
