The all-new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is inching closer towards its unveiling on February 23 and a couple of German reviewers on YouTube recently had the chance to test out the car in prototype guise.
Both of these videos offer a detailed look at both the exterior and interior designs of the new C-Class and we must say, some rather significant changes have been made.
The revamped C gets the fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 12.8-inch touchscreen from the range topper, but without the 3D functionality of the driver’s display seen in the S-Class. According to C-Class chief engineer Christian Frueh, the big center screen has all the MBUX goodies of the W223 luxobarge.
Another key update made to the cabin of the 2022 C-Class is the fitment of a new floating digital gauge cluster, while he car can also be equipped with the new AMG Line flat-bottomed steering wheel.
The exterior design will also share similarities to the S-Class, as well as the E-Class, with the most obvious changes being angular head- and taillights.
And, as we all know that Mercedes-Benz C-Class at present offers 4-, 6- and even 8-cylinder engine options but this won’t be the case for the next-generation model, Revealed by Car and Driver
According to the magazine, the next C-Class, due out later this year as a 2022 model, will come exclusively with 4-cylinder engines.
This confirms the initial reports regarding the C63 but it seems even the C43 will lose its six-cylinder too.
