Mercedes Benz has recently introduced the latest generation of its C-Class compact sedan. The model, which is still important in terms of sales volume, approaches its mandate with an evolutionary attitude.
Therefore, at first glance, it is difficult to distinguish from the previous vintage, whose life cycle began in 2014. Thinner headlights and taillights, redesigned radiator grille and beltline line extending the entire length. Along the sedan, though. A prudent reminder that there is a change of guard.
As expected, this C-Class size will increase. 65 mm long, it is slightly wider (10 mm), but shorter (9 mm). Tracks are also expanding to ensure better management.
Focus on the inside
However, you should come on board to see where Mercedes Benz has put the most effort. Much inspired by the S-Class, which was unveiled a few months ago, it relies on two large shelves for instrumentation and ensures the performance of the multimedia system.
This is the last iteration of the MBUX system, which, among other things, allows it to communicate with your home, which clearly should have a home automation system. Like any modern system, it updates automatically.
Only four cylinders
As announced earlier this year, the C-Class will only be eligible for supercharged four-cylinder engines, the power of which varies depending on the lever. Hence the optional attractive V6 and V8 are omitted.
This generation (C300) is the first lever to be offered in Canada with a turbocharged 2.0L mild hybrid four-cylinder 255hp and 295 lb-ft. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. 4matic all-wheel drive is standard.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will go on sale in the country early next year.
