2022 Mercedes C-Class: Just unveiled


Ever since its debut in 1993, the C-Class has been one of Mercedes’ most important models.

Now a brand new generation, the fifth in a row, has just been unveiled in Germany during the digital world premiere.

The news is many, both visually and not least on the technology front.

Large interior lift

On the outside, there are no big surprises to look at the newcomer. Here, Mercedes follows up with some adjustments, such as a new grille, front bumper and digital LED lights.

The expression on the front is very reminiscent of the E-Class facelift. The same goes for the back. Here, new and narrower headlights are in place, which makes the rear a little more sporty to look at, especially on the sedan.

If we take the trip in, however, great things have happened. Here, the interior is brand new, clearly inspired by the flagship S-Class.

It is first and foremost the large media screen in the center console, which steals a lot of attention. It is 9.5 inches, but can be upgraded to 11.9 inches as an option.

The digital instruments are also new, with the same layout as the S-Class.

Here’s the new king on the mound – this is the new S-Class

The new C-Class is delivered for the first time with ONLY four-cylinder engines. Also the upcoming AMG models will only get four cylinders.

Rechargeable hybrid

Mercedes already confirms that the car comes as a rechargeable hybrid, in combination with a petrol or diesel engine.

The interior has been completely redesigned in the new C-Class.  The second generation of the MBUX multimedia system is also among the news.

The electric range is up to 100 kilometers (WLTP). This makes the newcomer a class leader in this area. By the way, the battery pack is 25.4 kWh.

The new C-Box also comes with a number of different petrol and diesel engines. There will also be an All Terrain version.

The smallest petrol engine (C180) is a 1.5-liter of 170 hp and 250 Nm. At the opposite end we find the C300, with a 2-liter petrol turbo of 258 hp and 400 Nm.

If you choose diesel, there are only two alternatives: C220d and C300d. Both with a 2-liter engine of 200 and 265 hp, respectively, as well as 440 and 550 Nm.

A little later, this is launched as a rechargeable hybrid.  The electric range should be 100 kilometers, and the battery pack can be quickly charged in about 30 minutes.

Increased comfort and larger luggage compartment

Mercedes promises increased comfort in the new C-Class. Here, the chassis and suspension are brand new. In addition, air suspension is available as an option. And for the first time, the C-Class can be supplied with rear-wheel steering.

Here the rear wheels will turn by up to 2.5 degrees.

Both the sedan and station wagon versions have a length of 4,751 mm and a width of 1,820 mm. The wheelbase has been increased by 25 mm compared to its predecessor, which gives a wheelbase of 2,865 mm.

The luggage compartment in the station wagon is 30 liters larger than the previous model, and now has a capacity of between 490 and 1,510 liters. Here you also get the EASY-PACK electric tailgate as standard. This is easily operated either with the key, the button in the driver’s door, or the handle on the tailgate.

Color head-up display can be ordered as an option.  The driver will then see a virtual image of 9x3 inches (approx. 23x8 cm) floating over the hood at a distance of approx.  4.5 meters.

Fingerprint scanner

Like the new S-Class, the new C-Class is equipped with the second-generation MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). With this, the car’s interior becomes even more digital and intelligent.

The voice assistant “Hello Mercedes” has become more interactive and is able to learn by activating the online services in the Mercedes me app. In addition, certain actions can be performed even without the activation keyword, such as making a phone call.

On the new C-Class, you can get the optional “Augmented Video” where a camera detects the surroundings in front of the vehicle, places virtual objects, information and markers on the video image, and shows you this on the multimedia screen. These include, for example, traffic signs, directional arrows, file change recommendations and house numbers.

A fingerprint scanner allows users to log on to MBUX quickly and safeguards personal settings and data.

Three new exterior colors are available: Spectral blue, High-tech silver and Opalite white.

Launch for the summer

The new C-Class is expected to launch this summer, and will come as a rechargeable hybrid somewhat later.

– We are very much looking forward to welcoming the new C-Class to Norway. It is particularly exciting that the fourth-generation rechargeable hybrid has an impressive range of around 100 kilometers according to the WLTP standard. It makes it possible to cover most of the daily driving completely electrically, while you have the extra range from the internal combustion engine when you need it, says Executive Vice President Kjetil Myhre in Mercedes-Benz Norway, at Bertel O. Steen.
