All-New 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Revealed

C-Class levels up

  • Next-gen MBUX infotainment and more augmented reality

  • Four-cylinder gets turbo tech from Formula 1 car


Mercedes-Benz has just revealed an all-new C-Class. This generation gets slightly more aggressive bodywork, trades loads of buttons for screens, and gets slightly wider and longer as the model gains a new mild-hybrid system and nine-speed automatic.

The brand’s biggest seller adds sheet metal that’s sportier than before, including teardrop taillights and the brand’s new A-shaped grille sitting above a massive array of bumper openings. It grows slightly, about an inch longer in wheelbase, 2.5 in overall length, and s touch wider. It hasn’t changed cargo space, but passenger space is a few mm.

Powering the C 300 4Matic is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder fitted with a second-generation starter-generator that adds up to 20 hp and 147 lb-ft to the 255 and 295 the engine makes on its own. The 48V electric assistance allows for more “glide” mode and stop-start to save fuel. Mercedes-Benz says the turbocharger is an advancement on the twin-scroll turbo that comes from its work in Formula 1 and adds power, efficiency, and responsiveness.

Interior design combines a slip dash like the S-Class, and gets jet engine-like air vents and loads of trim. Dash and 10.25 (or 12.3) inch infotainment displays are angled toward the driver and sit, unusually for modern vehicles, under the dashboard vents. Mercedes says the seats are designed to look lighter and hide the headrest adjust under sealed trim.

This Mercedes-Benz C-Class uses the latest MBUX system including Hey Mercedes voice assistant. It can now tell between different occupants by their voices and has further smart home integration if you want to use features like checking your home alarm as well as controlling lights and other smart home functions. The system also includes augmented reality navigation to project directions on the center display in combination with a real-world view. It can do this with the head-up display now, as well.

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is expected to arrive here later this year, with pricing, options details, and fuel economy to follow.
