German automaker Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the Long Wheel Base (LWB) version of its new C-Class sedan at the Shanghai Auto Show 2021. It is unclear whether it will make its way to India.

The vehicle sports certain cosmetic updates inside-out and is offered with a choice of two petrol engines linked to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

Here are more details.

It is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, longer rear doors, an L badge on the C pillars, and designer multi-spoke wheels.

The vehicle has an 89mm longer wheelbase than the standard model and is 4,882mm long.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class LWB has a 5-seater cabin with heated front seats, a sunroof, a wider armrest with built-in cupholders, and USB ports for the second row, a head-up display, and a heated steering wheel.

It packs a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 11.9-inch MBUX touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Multiple airbags and driver-assistance systems ensure safety.
