Mercedes-Benz India will launch the new-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class on May 10, 2022. It is one of the most highly anticipated launches from the German luxury car manufacturer this year. The new-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class is pegged to be a volume-spinner for the company and our time spent with the car definitely points in direction of car being a successful model in a segment that has tough competition from the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and the Volvo S60. Mercedes has begun taking pre-bookings for the C-Class, with deliveries beginning from June 2022. In fact, the manufacturing has commenced at the Mercedes’ plant in Chakan, Maharashtra. Here’s what we expect the prices to be like once the new C is launched.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Price Expectation

Prices of the older generation C-Class began at ₹ 50 lakh or so. With the new C decidedly sportier, getting more engine options and a bunch of features and technology, we expect the prices of the new-gen C-Class starting at about ₹ 55 lakh, for the C 200 petrol variant. The C 220d and the C 300d are likely to be more expensive, with the top-spec C 300d being closer to ₹ 65 lakh.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Design

Our time spent with the new-gen C left us impressed, especially with Mercedes employing its ‘Sensual Purity’ design language on the car. The exterior in particular, works very well, with the pulled back cab-rearward design, power bulge on the bonnet and the AMG trim on the C 300d along with the Avant Garde line on the C 200 and the C 220d make it the sportiest, most evocative model of the C-Class yet.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabin and Tech

Along with the exterior design, the S-Class inspired themes are more pronounced on the inside. The highlight is the new 11.9-inch vertical touchscreen which gets the latest generation of the MBUX based on NTG 7. It is a connected car, along with a bunch of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features like active brake assist and active parking assist. The new C also gets a feature called ‘Car-to-X’, which is similar to a social network of cars, where Mercedes cars with MBUX can communicate with each other and share information on a real-time basis. The top-spec C 300d also gets Mercedes’ smart digital lights which use up to 1.3 million pixels for lighting and can be configured according to the direction of traffic.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Engine Options


Like we said, Mercedes-Benz India will offer three engine options on the C-Class. The C 200 petrol, C 220d diesel and the most powerful engine, the C 300d. The sole petrol engine on offer is a 1.5-litre unit, while the diesel mills are 2.0-litre units. In addition, all three engine options get an integrated starter generator (ISG) with EQ Boost, which provides a significant 15 bhp of extra power and up to 200 Nm of extra torque.
