Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2022 Motors of the Future

The Mercedes-Benz C-class will be completely redesigned in 2022, shaking up the entry-luxury automobile category. The Mercedes-Benz C-class has long been the brand's starting point, but recent additions to the lineup, such as the A-class sedan, have allowed the C-class to move upmarket and better compete with rivals like the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and Genesis G70. The all-new 2022 model will remain a rear-drive vehicle with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive as an option. The C-class cabin has the greatest modernization, as it borrows appearance and technology from the newly remodeled S-class sedan for 2021.

What's New for the Year 2022?

To put it simply: everything. Even though the new C-design class isn't drastically different from the previous model, the 2022 model year marks the start of a new generation with more luxury and high-tech amenities. By the end of 2022, we anticipate seeing the revamped C-class in Mercedes dealerships.

Pricing and Choosing Which One to Purchase

  1. Premium                  $44,600
  2. Exclusive                 $46,850
  3. Pinnacle                   $48,550

Mercedes-Benz will offer three separate trim levels on the 2022 C-class, rather than offering choices à la carte as it did on the previous generation car: Premium, Exclusive, and Pinnacle. The mid-level Exclusive trim, which includes amenities like a 360-degree exterior camera system, self-parking, wireless smartphone charging, and a Burmese premium music system, should please the largest swath of consumers, according to a breakdown of available features.

Although we anticipate Mercedes to sell the C-class in a coupe and convertible body style in the future, just the sedan will be offered at launch.

A huge touchscreen display, a digital gauge display, heated front seats, automatic high-beam headlights, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a sunroof, and other features are standard on all variants. Mercedes-4Matic Benz's all-wheel-drive system is available as an option, but we'll let you decide if you need it.

Performance, Engine, and Transmission

The 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will continue to power the 2022 C-class, but it will be supplemented by a 48-volt hybrid system that can supply up to 20 more horsepower on demand. An all-wheel drive is still an option, but a rear-wheel-drive is normal; the only transmission available is a nine-speed automatic. 

We haven't had the opportunity to test the 2022 C-class at our test track, but Mercedes-Benz expects it to reach 60 mph in 5.9 seconds. We feel the number is modest, given that the previous generation C-class achieved a time of 5.4 seconds.

Real-World MPG and Fuel Economy

The EPA has yet to reveal fuel efficiency data for the 2022 C-class, but they should be similar to the current model, which gets 23 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. When we have a chance, we'll put the new C-class through our 75-mph highway fuel-economy test and report back. For more information on the efficiency of C-fuels, go to the EPA's website.

Cargo, Interior, and Comfort

The C-class receives the most significant update in the shape of a new high-tech cabin. All versions come with a digital gauge display, touch-sensitive controls, and a plethora of additional features. Mercedes offers a substantial list of standard luxury items, including heated front seats with memory settings, a sunroof, open-pore wood trim, and aluminum highlights, on the new model, which looks similar to the revamped S-class sedans. 

Overall, the 2022 C-class is 2.5 inches longer than the previous model, with an inch added to the wheelbase. Mercedes-Benz claims that this results in extra rear-seat legroom, but until we have an opportunity to test-drive the new model, we won't know how visible the change is in practice.

Connectivity and Infotainment

A big vertically oriented 12.3-inch infotainment display, identical to the one seen in the revised S-class sedan, sweeps up from the center console and toward a trio of circular air vents on the upper dashboard. The touchscreen is slanted slightly toward the driver for easy usage while driving, and it runs Mercedes' MBUX infotainment system, which includes a voice-activated digital assistant, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and online access through a Wi-Fi hotspot. 

All versions come included with an 11.9-inch digital gauge display and a fingerprint sensor, which authenticates the driver's unique profile for memory settings. Optional additions include a head-up display, a wireless smartphone charging pad, an ambient lighting system, and a Burmese surround sound stereo system.

Features for Driver Assistance and Safety

The C-class comes standard with several driver-assistance technologies, but the car's trendiest tech, such as an adaptive cruise-control system that uses navigation data to alter the vehicle's speed for impending bends and roundabouts, is still an option. Visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites for further information on the C-crash-test class's performance. Important safety elements are likely to include the following:

  • Pedestrian recognition and standard autonomous emergency braking
  • There's also a lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.
  • Adaptive cruise control is offered in a semi-autonomous driving mode.

Coverage for Warranty and Maintenance

While competitors like as BMW, Genesis, and Volvo provide three years of free maintenance, Mercedes-Benz does not include that advantage in its regular warranty packages. Aside from that, all new Mercedes-Benz vehicles come with an industry-standard plan that covers most items for four years or 50,000 miles.

  • A limited warranty of four years or 50,000 miles is included.
  • The powertrain is covered by a four-year or 50,000-mile warranty.
  • There is no free planned maintenance.
