Mercedes has been the dominant player in the luxury car segment in the country and has launched several new and upgraded products which have been primarily credited for robust sales figures. Even under testing times of the past several months when the auto industry has struggled as a whole, Mercedes stayed ahead of the pack and is now lining up a number of launches to cement its numero uno position. The next launch from the company would be the GLC, slated for December 6.
