Thus those who wish to buy Mercedes Benz C Class and Mercedes Benz E Class sedans or the Mercedes Benz M Class SUV or any other Mercedes car this January must hurry and should book their car right now. As per the official statement issued by the German car giant and once the top player in the luxury car segment, it will be increasing the price of its cars by 1 to 3 percent from January 14. Notably, this price rise is commensurate with the trend in the industry when car makers go for a marginal price hike.

As part of the price rise, all the Mercedes cars will witness price rise. The B Class and the SLK Class, R Class and SLS AMG price in India will be increased by only 1 percent while the best selling sedans – C Class and E Class will witness a price hike by 1.5 percent. It is the S Class sedan and the M Class SUV that have the sharpest price rise to the tune of 3 percent. The car maker has said in its statement that the reasons behind this price rise are rising input costs, fluctuation of rupee to Euro ratio, high interest rates and a large number of other factors. These are the obvious reasons that have prompted almost all the car makers in India to schedule a price rise of their cars in this month.
