Mercedes Benz India will be launching the all-new 2012 Mercedes Benz M-Class at the upcoming Auto Expo in New Delhi. The third generation M-Class was initially unveiled in the European market in June and was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year. The 2012 Mercedes Benz M-Class will see plenty of key improvements, notably in performance, fuel efficiency and design. It will feature a new front fascia, an avant-garde grille, LED daytime running lights, new headlights, a re-sculpted hood and a new tailgate design, which is inspired from the new E-Class. The new M-Class will also wear new interiors, a panoramic roof, full leather seating, ventilated front seats, a rear seat entertainment system and will don a new updated COMAND system with internet connectivity. The 2012 M-Class was launched in Europe in three variants, the base model, ML250 Bluetec, featuring the same engine that powers the Mercedes Benz C250 Blue Efficiency in India - a 2.1-litre diesel four cylinder mill that produces 204PS of max power and 500Nm of max torque. The second variant, ML350 Bluetec uses a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that churns out 260PS of power and 620Nm of torque. A 3.5-litre V6 mill that churns out 308PS of power and 370Nm of torque powers the third variant, ML350 BlueEfficiency. All the three variants are mated to a 4-Matic all-wheel drive transmission. However, in Indian market the ML350 Bluetec variant will the see the light of day first.
