The German luxury automaker, Mercedes-Benz, is one of the most renowned luxury car brands globally. The company is famous for producing some of the most luxurious and desirable cars, and owning a Mercedes-Benz car with the three-pointed star is considered a status symbol in society. Due to this reason, many Bollywood celebrities drive around in Mercedes-Benz cars, and recently, five popular actresses also bought new Mercedes-Benz cars.
Munmum Dutta – Mercedes Benz A-Class Limousine
The first actress on the list is Munmun Dutta, known for her role as “Babita Ji” in the popular television show “Tarak Mehta ka Oolath Chashma.” Recently, the actress was spotted waiting outside a restaurant in Mumbai for her newly acquired Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine. She shared a picture of her brand-new Mercedes-Benz sedan on her Instagram story.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers three variants: A200 Progressive Line, A200d Progressive Line, and the top-of-the-line AMG A35 4Matic. We do not know which variant Munmun’s car is, but it’s not the AMG A35, so it is something between the petrol and diesel versions. The A200 has a 1.3-liter petrol engine with a four-cylinder and 163-hp turbo-petrol engine, while the diesel version has a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that produces 150 horsepower. The diesel engine has an 8-speed DCT automatic gearbox, while the petrol engine has a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
Neha and Aisha Sharma – Mercedes Benz GLE 400d
Next on the list are the popular Bollywood actress and model Neha Sharma and her sister, Aisha Sharma. The sister duo recently bought a brand-new Mercedes-Benz GLE 400d worth Rs 1 crore. The SUV is one of the most popular models sold by the German automaker in the country, and the sisters opted for a classy shade of black.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE is available in three different versions in the Indian market. The base model, the 300d, has a four-cylinder diesel engine with a maximum output of 245 PS and a maximum torque of 500 Nm. The more potent 400d has a six-cylinder diesel engine with a maximum output of 325 PS and a maximum torque of 700 Nm.
