What’s new in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan?
Today Mercedes-Benz introduced the world to the all-new, next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sedan. Joining the lineup as a member of the 2022 model year, we cannot wait for this flashy new sedan to arrive. The C-Class is one of the best-selling sedans on our lineup, and now that it’s being upgraded significantly, we can only expect its popularity to continue rising. Naturally, there’s far too much to cover in just one blog, so be sure to keep check back on our blog for more updates – but for now, we’ll highlight a few things that are new in the fifth-generation C-Class Sedan!
“The letters C and S sit at opposite ends of the alphabet. However, in our portfolio they’re now moving closer together. The C-Class is already our best-selling sedan. Still, I’m certain our new C-Class will excite even more customers with a wide range of high-tech features derived from our flagship S-Class. With the latest generation MBUX and comprehensive electrification, our most successful model range will once again raise the bar as the most sophisticated offering in its segment.”

Updated Specs & Features Highlights
For starters, the all-new C-Class Sedan is the first of the classic Mercedes-Benz models to become completely electrified. This is due to engineers integrating both a starter-generator as well as 48-volt technology into the vehicle. In the interior, the seating in the cabin has been completely redesigned, as have their head restraints, and a new 64-color ambient lighting system has been added as a standard feature.
The vehicle will also be equipped with the next-gen MBUX system we’ve been talking about so much lately. Underneath the hood, the C-Class is now powered by the 4-cylinder M 254 gasoline engine, the C-Class Sedan can generate 255 horsepower, and add 20 hp to that by boosting performance. Likewise, it can generate 295 pound-feet of torque, and add 148 lb-ft. through boost.
