Interiors of Edition C give out food for thoughts and are stunning for eyes to watch to make for an exciting car-cabin entry. The unique navigation control system is integrated with the infotainment system. This car boasts of an ambient lighting system in the cabin area, which makes it look highly attractive. Other highly sought after features that have been incorporated in this Edition C are sport seats with ARTICO/DINAMICA microfibre upholstery with contrast stitching, luxury multifunction steering wheel of 4-spoke design and 1/3: 2/3 folding rear seat backrests. To further add to the cabin décor, this vehicle also features door panels, shift lever, velour mats and steering with contrast stitching.

Many industry experts have hailed this decision to launch an exclusive edition of Class-C. With this launch, the premium car maker would be looking to penetrate deep in the Indian automobile market. From other perspective, this will usher a new competition in the market among luxury car makers. BMW, rival of Mercedes-Benz, would be watching this progress with keen eyes, but nonetheless, customers will be the ultimate beneficiaries of such a cut-throat competition.
