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.
We’ll start off with the interior, as it is the most obvious point of difference from the outgoing car. Much like the new S-Class, the new C-Class has a floating, portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system that not only houses the navigation and entertainment system but also the controls for the climate control. Moreover, as with the new S-Class, the air vents will be repositioned above the infotainment screen.
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. One of the reviewers adds that the new car is 6 cm longer than the outgoing model while sporting a 2.5 cm longer wheelbase to improve legroom for rear seat passengers.
