Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What's New

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan is all-new while the Coupe and Cabriolet models continue on as carryover models. The sedan features a freshly restyled exterior and interior that pulls inspiration from the S-Class and is offered in a new three-tier trim structure. The infotainment has also been upgraded, as have the base powertrain and drivetrain. The Coupe and Cabriolet models newly receive adaptive high-beam assist and Parking Damage Detection as standard equipment and the V8 AMG model is now limited to the AMG 63 S trim.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The all-new C-Class sedan is available in three C 300 trims, the Premium, Exclusive, and Pinnacle while the Coupe and Cabriolet are offered in the C 300, AMG C 43, and AMG C 63 S. Pricing for the sedan ranges from $43,050 to $47,00 while the Coupe ranges from $48,900 to $80,250 and the Cabriolet ranges from $56,450 to $88,150.

Engine Choices

The C-300 sedan is fitted with an updated version of the four-cylinder engine whose power is now supplemented by an integrated starter-generator (ISG) that provides 20 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of immediately accessible torque that feeds into a more capable all-wheel-drive system, and a more efficient nine-speed transmission. The coupe and cabriolet feature carryover powertrains that range significantly in terms of power and efficiency. The AMG models are not yet available with the new generation C Class. All-wheel drive is $2,000.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The new sedan seats five and stretches to 187 inches and sits 71.7 inches wide. The rear seat provides 36 inches of legroom and 37.5 inches of headroom and the trunk opens up to 11.6 cubic feet. A split-folding rear seatback is standard.

The Coupe and Cabriolet measure 184.5 inches in length and are marginally narrower while the rear seat loses a bit of priority and provides only 32 and 35.6 inches of legroom and headroom, respectively. The trunk is also slightly less than the new sedan, measuring 10.5 cubic feet or 8.8 cubic feet in the Cabriolet.

Safety Features

The C 300 Sedan, Coupe, and Cabriolet feature automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, driver attention monitor, adaptive automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and a pre-collision preparedness system that tightens the seat belts, closes the windows, and emits a pink noise that triggers the inner ear to protect the drum from the pressure created during an impact.

The $1,700 Driver Assistance Package adds adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane change assist, cross-traffic alert with automatic braking, and evasive steering assist. The Sedan uses a newer generation of driver-assist systems. Active Parking Assist with a surround-view camera is standard on the Exclusive trim on the sedan and available through the $1,100 Parking Assist Package on the two-door models.

The IIHS has not yet rated the 2022 sedan, however, the previous generation earned a 2021 Top Safety Pick+ award with Good crashworthiness scores, superior vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention, and Good headlight performance. The government (NHTSA) also gave the 2021 model its best rating of five stars. The Coupe and Cabriolet have not been rated.


The new C 300 Sedan features a portrait-style 11.9-inch central infotainment touchscreen display that is angled towards the driver and includes the latest MBUX software, 50% more processing power compared to the previous version, wireless smartphone integration, and HD Radio.

Satellite radio ($350), navigation ($650), and the Advanced USB Package ($300) that adds three more USB ports (total of six) are stand-alone options while wireless charging and a Burmester 3D Surround sound system with 15 speakers are standard on the mid-level Exclusive trim.

The Coupe and Cabriolet models continue with a 10.25-inch center screen, smartphone compatibility, SiriusXM, and HD Radio. Wireless charging is available for $200 and navigation is optional through the $1,250 Multimedia Package.
