The new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be arriving in U.S. dealerships this spring, ahead of which they have announced pricing and trim structure for the base C300. All prices listed below exclude a $1,050 destination and delivery fee.
The first trim is the Premium, which starts at $43,550 for the C300 and $45,550 for the all-wheel drive C300 4MATIC. It comes standard with a 12.3-inch Driver Display as well as an 11.9-inch infotainment display running the latest MBUX with a fingerprint scanner.
The luxury compact sedan also comes with Mercedes‘ latest suite of keyless entry features along with all their most useful driver aids. Amenities for this trim include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, a sunroof, 18-inch wheels, LED lighting all around with adaptive high beam assist, interior ambient lighting, and a drive mode selector.
The next trim is the Exclusive, which starts at $45,800 for the C300 and $47,800 for the C300 4MATIC. It includes everything from the Premium trim, with the addition of PARKTRONIC park assist, Surround View System with Guard 360˚ security functionality, enhanced interior ambient lighting, illuminated door sills, wireless charging, and a Burmester 3D surround sound system.
The final trim is the Pinnacle, which starts at $47,500 for the C300 and $49,500 for the C300 4MATIC. It includes everything from the Premium and Exclusive trims plus MB Navigation with MBUX Augmented Video and a heads-up display.
Seeing as all three trims apply to just the base C300 for now (the AMG C53 and AMG C63 will follow later), all three are powered by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine paired with a 48V mild-hybrid system. The system produces a combined output of 255 hp (259 PS / 190 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque, which is the same amount of power, but 22 lb-ft (30 Nm) more than the outgoing C300.
