Mercedes-Benz India unveiled the
much awaited dynamic SUV- the GLC; the stunningly attractive S-Class Cabriolet
and showcased the exquisitely crafted fortress on wheels, the Mercedes-Maybach
S 600 Guard. Both the global products which do not have a predecessor in India,
were unveiled by Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz
The highly anticipated GLC was
unveiled at the Auto Expo. The GLC is a unique, sporty and dynamic SUV which
combines the ultimate in driving comfort, with impressive on road and off-road
capabilities. The design philosophy behind the new GLC essentially favours
sensual purity and modern aesthetics over the classic off-road look. The
paradigm shift in the area of design affects not only the outside appearance.
The new design idiom combines sensual purity with dynamic sportiness and
embodies a new interpretation of modern luxury. With a Cd value of 0.31, it
sets a clear benchmark in this segment.
The S-Class Cabriolet is the
6th variant of the current S-Class family and the first open-top luxury
four-seater from Mercedes-Benz since 1971. The S-Class Cabriolet symbolizes
Mercedes-Benz’s passion for creating individual and timeless exclusive mobility
for customers. The V8 engine of the S 500 Cabrio has an output of 335 kW (455
hp). The displacement stands at 4663 cc and the engine produces peak torque of
700 Nm from 1800 rpm. The S-Class Cabriolet is fitted as standard with the
full-support AIRMATIC semi-active air suspension featuring infinitely variable
The Mercedes-Maybach S 600
Guard combines a host of superlatives. As a special-protection vehicle, the
perfection and exclusivity of the S-Class and the modern luxury of Maybach,
meet the highest standards creating a room for invincible personal safety. In
the most critical scenarios with amounts of explosives that are far higher than
those in standard tests, even with HG85 in the area of the roof and floor, the
Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard remains on the ground and offers the best possible
resistance. It is also resistant to blasts from the side with explosive
fragmentation charges. Even under fire, the vehicle with the highest possible
rating for protection against ballistics,VR9, shows no weakness and offers the
best-possible protection even against threats from the Dragunov sniper rifle.
