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.
