This very heading might make many Mercedes-Benz lovers sad. Mercedes-Benz has decided to drop the three-pointed star hood ornament for the 2018 model of the C-Class in the US. Instead, the German luxury auto major will offer the company logo on the car’s front grille just like we get to see on the Merc models sold in India. The reason behind this is that Mercedes-Benz is trying to offer a contemporary and sportier appeal with its new-gen C-Class and the hood ornament is making the car look older, as per the company. The three-pointed star hood ornament is an icon and adds a regal touch to the cars. However, if regal appeal clashes with sporty looks, then Mercedes-Benz would rather show the door to the first.
