Check Out the Lineup of Mercedes Cars at Auto Expo 2016

Riding high on the back of a hugely successful 2015 campaign, Mercedes-Benz India is looking to start 2016 where it left off. Having already launched the GLE 450 AMG Coupe in January, MBIL heads to the 2016 Auto Expo with a handful of new cars. A new SUV and a cabriolet have made their debut the event, but Mercedes-Benz’s pavilion has a lot more to look forward to. Unfortunately, the 2017 E-Class did not show its face at the Auto Expo as India will not be getting the sedan until the early part of 2017. Here’s the lowdown on Mercedes Cars at Auto Expo 2016 with expected launch dates, prices and specifications.
