Now that the B Class is there in India priced at Rs 21.49 lakh, it is highly affordable for people to drive home a brand new Mercedes car. Thus by targeting the under Rs 25 lakh luxury car segment, the car maker has done the right thing and the other rivals such as BMW and Audi are soon to follow suit. Though Mercedes cars have always been the dream car of Indians since 1886 when the brand was first officially introduced in the country. But at that time, the Mercedes cars were considered to be in the reach of the thoroughly rich only. Now that the three pointed star brand has brought its cars within the reach of a large section of the society it is believed that it will be able to attain its lost title in the near future.
