It’s safe to say that Mercedes-Benz has over the years has taken a lot of effort to make its cars more reachable to Indian customers. Even if not in terms of a more favourable pricing strategy, it most certainly has encouraged newer and younger buyers to come forward and experience its products first hand.

 

The luxury car maker’s Star Drive experience program in India is probably the most well known initiative on this front, but has in a sense left enthusiasts craving for something more engaging and comprehensive.

 

Addressing this need the Three Pointed Star has just come forward with its broader ‘Mercedes-Benz Performance Drive’ platform, which will now ensure that people with different expectations and skill levels can engage themselves with the brand in a more focused manner.

 

The Mercedes -Benz Performance Drive platform is built on six key pillars that address the need to nurture the country’s younger motorsport talent and educate SUV buyers on correct off-roading techniques among other initiatives. 

 

Special track events organized at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) for corporates and international driving experience in some exotic locations are also part of this unique platform, details of which are available on www.mercedesbenzperformancedrive.in
