2022 Mercedes C-Class Review : 10 Pros & 9 Cons

The cabin of the Mercedes C-Class is an extremely plush place to be in with the increased dimensions reflecting in the additional space available for front as well as rear passengers. The large iPad like vertically oriented infotainment head-unit is fairly intuitive to use.

Mercedes C-Class Pros

  • Stunning looks & design. Matched to solid build quality too
  • Premium quality interiors, supportive seats, filled with technology
  • Useable rear seat, with better legroom than before
  • Wide range of engines; powerful 265-hp C 300d for enthusiasts, workhorse C 220d and a C 200 for sedate drivers
  • Smooth & competent 9-speed AT gearbox
  • Well-damped suspension offers mature ride quality
  • Fun to drive (with the right engine)! Communicative chassis & excellent high-speed manners
  • The C 220d (especially) & C200k are reasonably fuel-efficient for the segment
  • Equipment such as seat kinetics, latest-gen MBUX, panoramic sunroof, memory seats, electric steering adjustment…
  • Top notch safety kit, runflat tyres, powerful brakes & a suite of electronic aids to keep you safe

Mercedes C-Class Cons

  • C 200 petrol’s 1.5L drivetrain feels just about adequate. Best for chauffeured use or for calm owners
  • There is no bigger or more powerful petrol engine option
  • The C-Class has been getting more & more expensive over the years. This new-gen is expected to be pricey
  • Boot space (already at a premium) is drastically impacted by the spare wheel on the floor
  • Better as a 4-adult seater than 5
  • BMW’s 330i is the more fun-to-drive petrol sedan
  • IMHO, the faux leather seats just don’t cut it at this price point (3-Series gives real leather). No ventilated seats either
  • Styling is more of an evolution than a revolution. Also, looks very similar to other sedans in the Mercedes range
  • While it’s not unusual for premium sedans, you need to be careful on bad bumps. This car with 4 people and luggage bottomed out a few times during our Mussoorie drive
