IAB Comment- The clear visual differentiation of the three model lines available in the C-Class - Classic, Elegance and Avantgarde - has proved to be very successful. Indians though would prefer the class of the C, more are going in for the Avantgarde grille which features a huge Mercedes tri-star badge in the middle. It lends the C -Class some much needed muscle.
