mercedes is raising the price on the new 2022 c-class sedan and introducing a new trim-level structure that bundles certain options together into premium, exclusive, and pinnacle models. the c300 sedan, which starts at $44,600, will be the first of the new w206-generation models to arrive in the u.s., while the previous-generation coupe and convertible models will be sold alongside the new sedan for this model year.
the c300 premium's starting price is $1950 more than the 2021 c300's, and the base trim comes standard with equipment such as an 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, blind-spot monitoring, 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, and a sunroof. the exclusive starts at $46,850 and adds a park-assist system, ambient lighting, wireless smartphone charging, and an upgraded audio system. the $48,550 pinnacle sits at the top of the lineup and adds navigation with an augmented video display and a head-up display. mercedes will also offer standalone options but has not yet released full pricing or a configurator.
all c300 models come with a 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with a 48-volt hybrid system. rear-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic transmission are standard, while 4matic all-wheel drive is a $2000 option. more powerful amg models are still to come and will also use four-cylinder gas engines with varying degrees of hybrid assistance.
the redesigned c-class sedan will start arriving in u.s. dealerships this spring, according to mercedes.
