2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class pricing and specs: All-new model debuts in C 200 and C 300 flavours


The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan arrives in Australia in 2 guises, with mild hybrid assistance and strong standard equipment across the range.

Mercedes-Benz is set to welcome its all-new 2022 C-Class to Australia, with the brand's best-selling sedan arriving in 2 popular guises at launch. Additional variants such as the AMG performance models are set to follow.

Priced from $78,900 before on-road costs, the redesigned C-Class clearly draws heavily upon the new S-Class – Mercedes' flagship luxury sedan – with Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Källenius even commenting, "The letters C and S sit at opposite ends of the alphabet. However, in our portfolio they're now moving closer together."

Considerably longer and wider than its predecessor – 4,793mm in length, 1,820mm in width and riding on a 2,865mm wheelbase – Mercedes-Benz cites increases in elbow room for both front and rear passengers and additional legroom and headroom for those in the back.

The currently-2-tiered Australian range kicks off with the C 200, which sports a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making 150kW and 300Nm, good for a 7.3-second 0–100km/h sprint.

Stepping up to the C 300 adds a larger 2.0-litre turbo engine with 190kW and 400Nm, which gets it to triple digits in just 6.0 seconds. Both are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Both engines also sport a 48-volt mild hybrid system, with an integrated starter generator that can feed in an additional 15kW and 200Nm. It also helps save fuel, with claims of 6.9L/100km and 7.3L/100km for the 2 engines respectively. A 4-wheel steering system is also optional for the new model.

Both models come with a big bag of standard kits, with the AMG Line interior and exterior packages fitted as standard. A new "star design" grille helps it stand out at the front. 3 new colours have been added to the range – Spectral Blue, High-Tech Silver and Opalite White. The C 300 also boasts 19-inch AMG wheels to set it apart from the base C 200 which wears 18-inch alloys.

The redesigned cabin notably sports a big 11.9-inch portrait-oriented infotainment display running the second-generation MBUX operating system with "Hey Mercedes!" voice assistance, along with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

It also features redesigned sports seats, 64-colour ambient interior lighting, illuminated treadplates, keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control and a powered boot lid across the range.

Safety equipment is also increased, with the addition of a front centre airbag for the first time. A 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind-spot warning and lane tracking with active lane keeping assist are also included.

The Mercedes-Benz C 200 and C 300 sedans are available to order now, with the timing of additional variants joining the range is yet to be announced.
