Recapping its year, Mercedes-Benz India launched 10 new models and inaugurated 14 dealerships last year. It also introduced Mercedes-Benz Certified, its pre-owned car sales outlet across 12 dealerships. The AMG Performance Center which deals exclusively in the high-performance brand was launched in three cities as well.
Speaking of AMG, four AMG products were launched last year: GL 63 AMG, ML 63 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG. The last two are based on the MFA platform, and saw the AMG brand reach out to younger audiences.
Other launches from the three-pointed star last year were the S Class, GLA, new C Class, E 350 CDI and Edition 1 special variants of the A and B Class.
