This 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Yes The retail price of basic cars in the U.S. is comparable to Mainstream Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew, but its interior looks like Mercedes directly from the three-pointed star Flagship sedan, S-class. In this new C-Class there are also S-Class functions and forms.
Get the goods
The new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has The same dazzling and efficient MBUX user interface system that debuted in S-Class Last year, it provided almost the same level of functionality. No, you don’t have the skills to acquire a 3-D digital dashboard, nor the augmented reality head-up display for S-class main party skills. But you do get almost everything else. In terms of atmosphere and touch technology, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class interior makes the cabs of the BMW 3 Series and even the Audi A4 look and feel like low-end market products.
The rectangular digital instrument panel is located above the instrument panel, and the instrument panel rolls forward under the windshield, enhancing the sense of spaciousness. Like the S-Class sedan, the vertical format center touch screen flies over the dashboard, and its silver edge flows back to the upper surface of the center console like the F-15’s wingtip trail. However, in the S-Class, the console structure below the central touch screen just puts the head on the lower dashboard. In a C-class car, its outer edge curves to the left and right, and extends to every corner of the cabin in an uninterrupted straight line.
Other S-level technology: The various components controlled by the symbol seat on the door are touch-sensitive capacitive switches, which means that the switches will not move. These switches feel strange at first-you expect movement-but once you get used to just touching rather than pushing or pulling their elements, you don’t want to go back to the old system: you can now make finer adjustments to them The seats are better than before.
Similarly, the steering wheel has the same tactile touch control as the S-Class on the horizontal spokes. They are also a bit difficult to work, until you get used to the idea that you can make things happen just by touching and swiping with your fingertips. Moreover, like the S-class car, the MBUX voice recognition system can identify which passenger in the car is speaking.
Structural changes, etc.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, code-named W206, is based on the evolution of the upcoming W205 platform and has undergone a major redesign to package a 24.5 kWh battery, which can provide 60 miles of pure electric power for plug-in hybrids Range models, and a new rear axle with optional rear wheel steering. The wheelbase is one inch longer, most of which is used to improve rear legroom. The overall length increases by 2.6 inches and the width increases by 0.4 inches. However, one measurement has shrunk: the roofline is 0.4 inches lower.
Up front is an improved multi-link suspension, with a design similar to that of the new S-Class. Like the new S-Class sedan, the optional rear steering system turns the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels at a speed of more than 35 mph to enhance stability. They turn in opposite directions at speeds below 35 mph to increase their agility. In the S class, the rear wheels rotate 10 degrees or 4.5 degrees, depending on the wheel and tire size, but in the C class, the rear wheels can only rotate up to 2.5 degrees.
why? Chief engineer Christian Früh said that in the S-class car, the rear steering is to make the large car more maneuverable, but in the smaller C-class car, it is purely for handling. With more than 35 mph in-phase steering to ensure a more stable rear end, Früh’s engineers were able to tighten the W206’s steering ratio to improve its response. The US-spec C-class models will not offer rear steering at launch, but the technology will almost certainly be included in the AMG version of W206.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be launched in the United States early next year, adopting C300 and C300 4Matic specifications, and equipped with the M254 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that debuted in Europe last year.
Power, design and trim
M254 has the same bore and bore center, basically a 3.0-liter M256 inline six-cylinder engine Used in E450, Two cylinders were chopped off. It also has a 48-volt integrated starter generator setting, 20-horsepower EQ Boost and coasting function. The engine can produce 255 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 to 3,200 rpm. With Mercedes-Benz’s smooth nine-speed autopilot, it provides a claimed 0-60 mph acceleration time of 6.0 seconds.
Each exterior panel is new, but unlike the significantly high-end interior, the execution is evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The form, surface and graphics echo those on the new S-Class and the revised E-Class. For example, the clear lines starting from the front quarter panel and extending backward under the side windows echo the S-class sedan, while the frowning grille graphics and dual-powered horn on the hood mimic the E-class sedan. The taillights incorporate the design elements of each of the larger siblings of the new car.
Three decoration levels will be offered at launch: Premium, including standard sunroof; Exclusive, which includes Parktronic parking assist system, inductive wireless charging for mobile devices, and excellent Burmester 3D audio system; and Pinnacle, which provides you with enhanced video and head-up vision MB navigation system of the display. All cars will roll on 18-inch wheels.
The way we ride
Internal and external design elements and MBUX hardware and software are not the only obvious S-Class impact in the new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: impressive ride comfort and obvious road noise suppression make it feel more Like its original 190E, it is more luxurious than any compact Mercedes sedan, but we should note that all test cars released by the media of this model are equipped with adaptive damping suspension, which is a European type. select.
There is a sense of floating in the comfort mode, but even so, our test car, also on the optional 19-inch rims, uses 225/40 and 255/35 Goodyears insoles for the front and rear wheels, and is equipped with an optional four-wheel drive. Pass the corner towards the system level. The suspension in sports mode subtly calms down slight floats without increasing the harshness of the impact, which is a crucial achievement. If you like this, but don’t want the sports mode to also provide the extra business of the power system, please switch to the personal mode, put the suspension in the sport state, and put everything else in a comfortable state.
The steering is great, although you don’t notice the rear wheels doing their thing except for the obvious narrowing of the car’s turning circle when turning around, but as the chief engineer Früh promised, the moment you pull the steering wheel, the initial reaction It will be more sensitive that the steering wheel is off-center, providing greater support from the rear to the corner. The advantage of this new C-Class is that there is no noise at all. You can gallop on rugged country roads at amazing speeds, but it always feels calm and controllable.
Although traditional cars seem to be a dying breed, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has actually been the brand’s global best-selling car for the past decade. Since the car was launched in 2014, more than 2.5 million vehicles have been sold for the upcoming W205 model alone. Since 2016, China has become its largest single market. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class of 2022 — more spacious than its predecessor, with style and technology, and a manner that was heavily influenced by the cars that defined the Mercedes brand — looks set to follow its wheel tracks.
