Our Opinion - 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Mercedes-Benz C-Class has received the greatest possible compliment: It feels like an S-Class. Even in the interior, which has the same luxury feel, and the same clean and efficient second-generation MBUX system as its larger sibling. However, the C-Class’ interior surpasses that of the Model 3 and Audi A4 in terms of luxury, even though it doesn’t have some of the S-high-tech Class’s amenities.

Because of its quiet and comfortable ride, the C-Class sedan gets high marks from us in our First Drive review. However, it’s worth noting that in Europe, an adaptive-damping suspension is an available option. Even at high speeds, the C-Class feels serene and composed. Sharp steering continues to be refined.

A complete battery of engineered testing on the C-Class is something we are eagerly anticipating. As for now, we’re happy to hear that the C-Class had taken a lot of the S-looks and driving quirks.

  • A reworked frontage
  • Portrait-style 11.9-inch touchscreen at the centre
  • A 12.3-inch instrument panel cluster that is freestanding
  • It has more power than the preceding turbo-four engine, a four-cylinder with moderate hybrid technology
  • To enhance the transfer of torque, the AWD system’s front-axle drive is updated.
  • A 50 percent increase in computing power for the MBUX infotainment system.
  • Adaptive cruise, steering assist, and parking assist have all had their software updated to provide better help to drivers.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is getting a big upgrade for the year 2022 with a revised model. It’s long overdue, given that the sedan hasn’t seen a significant facelift since the 156 year. With a new design, new interior innovations, and a more powerful four-cylinder engine, this already-plush sedan can compete with newer rivals like the Model 3, Audi A4, and Genesis G70.

The 2.0-liter turbo-four engine in the new 2022 C300 sedan features mild hybrid technology. It has 255 horsepower and 295 pound-foot of torque, with the option of short bursts of 20 horsepower and 148 pound-foot of torque via electric boost. The automaker’s 4Matic technology may send power to either the back wheels or all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. Regardless of the drivetrain, the C300 car is expected to reach 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph.

The 2022 C-Class from Mercedes has a plethora of safety measures. Emergency warning braking, parking fault detection, blind-spot assist, and attention help are all included as standard equipment on the sedan.

However, you can expect to pay extra for the most luxurious options. Improved adaptive cruise control with route-based velocity adaptation and stop/go traffic assist is included in the driver assistance package. In addition, the system incorporates active steering help, lane: changing assist, an Action Blind Spot Assist, a braking assist with cross traffic function, and a feature that mechanically transfers the front seats occupant aside from the impact point before a collision.

Five people can sit in a sedan. Rearward visibility has increased marginally from 35.2 feet to 36.0 inches, but the front legroom has remained unchanged at 41.7 inches. As a result of these updates, the C-Class now matches the front and back legroom of the 2021 Audi A4, which measures 41.3 inches long.

The C-Class sedan has a huge central touchscreen that is placed in a vertical orientation like Tesla’s. This regular display is canted toward the driver for ease of use and is 11.9 inches. Additionally, a 12.3-inch completely digital instrument cluster is included in the package as standard. With a fingerprint reader underneath the central display, drivers can activate the C-new Class’s MBUX infotainment system.

An Augmented Vision for Navigation feature superimposes arrows and house numbers onto the dashboard to make it easier for users to navigate their way through town. This feature is available as an option.

Keyless access, push-button start, a moonroof, heated rear seats with storage and lumbar supports, and a leatherette steering column with multi touch buttons for the infotainment system are all included as standard equipment on the C-Class sedan. Inductive wireless charging, heated steering wheel, and vented front seats are all optional comfort options.

Mercedes hopes that dividing the C-Class into 3 different trim levels will simplify the process of making a decision. For starters, there’s the Premium model, which comes equipped with outside amenities like 18-inch wheels and interior features like the large gauge and infotainment displays. Driver-assist features are included as part of the package.

Added innovations and luxuries are provided by the Exclusive trim. These features include a 360-degree security camera system, ambient lighting, and a high-quality audio system.

With a heads up display and augmented reality navigation integrated in, the Pinnacle trim is the most luxurious option.

Adaptive headlights, a heated steering wheel, and a panoramic sunroof are all options available on all model levels. The AMG Lines package is once again available for those who want their C-Class to have even more sporty looks.
