Speaking about the new sedan, Eberhard Kern, managing director and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India, said that the car weighs 50 kg less as compared to the previous generation model. Mercedes-Benz Research & Development India Pvt Ltd (MBRDI) contributed significantly to achieve the lower weight, he said.

For the Indian model, certain changes in the navigation system of the car were also developed by MBRDI. The sedan is equipped with Mercedes’s new age 8.4-inch infotainment system which sees a touchpad-based controller operated by one’s fingertip.
