Mercedes Benz, the brand has been synonymous with luxury for decades now. The 2022 Mercedes C-Class sustains this and is surely the best C-Class yet! The baby S-Class has always been the sort of “mid-range” luxury car for someone on a budget. Over the years, the C-Class has evolved into a beautiful machine, that now definitely looks like a mini S-Class.
2022 Mercedes C-Class – What’s new?
Well, everything. Yes, most things on the 2022 C-Class are brand new. Everything from the design, interiors, engines and tech, everything is new. The 2022 Mercedes C-Class is also significantly bigger in size. It is 65mm longer, has 25mm more wheelbase, is 10mm wider and is 7mm taller!
What does it look like?
The 2022 Mercedes C-Class looks very similar to the new S-Class. Of course, it is not as huge, but the similarities are uncanny. The elegant, classy yet aggressive design language is very vocal. Sleek lines and lights that are beautifully integrated with the body make the car look like a smooth piece of marble. Needless to say, Mercedes has, yet again, nailed the design on the C-Class.
What does the inside look like?
The inside looks super-premium with leather finishes and soft touches all around. The centre of attention is of course the all-new 11.9-inch portrait-style infotainment unit that literally controls the whole car. The 2022 Mercedes C-Class has taken a leap in technology. Everything in the car is touch-controlled, even the buttons for the electric seats are capacitive. This may be a pro for someone, and a con for someone, choose your poison. The all-new steering wheel also gets all touch controls to toggle through the 12.3-inch digital driver display. It also gets dual sunroofs that bring in a lot of airiness and light into the cabin.
Engines on the 2022 Mercedes C-Class
The all-new C-Class gets 3 engine options (1 petrol and 2 diesel). What’s new here is that all these engines are supported by a mild hybrid system that adds about 20HP to these machines. All these engines are paired with a 9-Speed automatic gearbox.
Variant Engine Power Torque C200 1.5L Turbo petrol 204 HP 300nm C220d 2L Diesel 200 HP 440nm C300d 2L Diesel 265 HP 550nm
How much does it cost?
The new C-Class is priced between Rs. 55 – 61 Lakhs in India. It is slightly costlier as compared to the previous generation, but it does offer a lot more.
