Serving McKinney, TX

The C-Class is the Mercedes-Benz sedan that has been capturing the attention of drivers in the McKinney area since 1993. Now that you are preparing for your next car purchase, you may be eager to learn more about what is in store for the latest generation of the C-Class. Notably, the C-Class breaks new ground with the introduction of its fifth-generation in 2022. At the same time, it brings three trim levels to the table. These are the Premium, the Exclusive, and the Pinnacle. Are you ready to take a closer look at the differences between the 2021 and 2022 C-Class sedans?


In the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, a 2.0-liter, turbo I-4 engine gels with a nine-speed auto transmission to produce 255 horsepower. Both rear-wheel drive and 4MATIC® all-wheel drive are possibilities. For 2022, the C-Class's turbo four-cylinder engine has a mild-hybrid system with an enhanced starter-generator device. This engine has the same horsepower output as the 2021 version's engine has, and it offers enhanced torque output.


The C-Class has been restyled from front to rear for 2022. The new-look shows off a longer, wider frame and a rearward-trending stance. The revised styling also includes reshaped LED headlights with an A-style grille and starburst mesh. Power domes on the hood and two-part taillamps complete the new look. Between the 2021 and 2022 model years, you will notice five new exterior color options available for you to choose from.


Both model years have an MBUX sound system, premium materials, a pair of digital display screens, smart device integration, and more. For 2022, this is a next-generation MBUX system with a portrait-style display screen. The 2022 C-Class sedan also comes with wireless smart device integration technologies, an angled central display stack, active steering assist, active lane change assist, active driving assist, active stop-and-go assist, and more.
