About the Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Generations of Mercedes-Benz buyers have chosen the C-Class for its attractive styling, luxurious interior, and dynamic, engaging performance. The all-new Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes everything you loved about the previous model and improved on it. The modern, yet traditional styling, attractive wheel designs, and signature LED headlamps grab your attention before you even get inside. The comfortable interior is wrapped in quality materials and packed full of technology. Enjoy all your favorite smartphone functions with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto integration. Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s more powerful – and more efficient – than ever before. That transmission is backed up by a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission that never sacrifices shifting performance for smoothness – or vice-versa. In the small luxury sedan segment, many imitators try unsuccessfully to match the excellence represented by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
What the Critics Say
With a complete redesign in store for the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-class, the entry-luxury car segment is in for a shakeup. The C-class has long served as the entry-point to the Mercedes-Benz lineup, but new additions to the brand in recent years such as the A-class sedan have allowed the C-class to move upmarket and better battle rivals such as the Audi A4, BMW 3-series, and Genesis G70.” – Car and Driver
The impressive ride comfort and readily apparent road-noise suppression makes it feel much more like its luxurious big brother than any compact Mercedes sedan has since the original 190E.” – Motor Trend
What’s New for 2022
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is all new, with a refined body shape, a more powerful drivetrain with an integrated 48-volt EQ Boost hybrid system, four-wheel steering, and an interior design influenced by the technology found in the flagship S-Class. In short, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is bigger, better, faster, and stronger than the mode that came before.
