Serving Milwaukee, WI

For almost three decades, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been a strong contender among premium car shoppers in the Milwaukee area, and it continues to be a popular option today. Before you spend time looking at other models, you may want to learn more about what the C-Class sedan brings to the table for the 2022 model year. This is because the model’s fifth generation debuts in 2022 with three trim levels. After you know more about the next-generation C-Class, which sedan will you select from our extensive inventory?


For 2022, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is available with three trim levels: the Premium, Exclusive, and Pinnacle. All of the trims have a mild-hybrid, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 255 horsepower. It has an enhanced starter feature. This is compared to the turbo 2.0-liter I-4 engine that was offered for the 2021 model year. The engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel drive or 4MATIC® all-wheel drive for both years.


The 2021 C-Class sedan is a sleek sedan with beautiful contouring and LED headlights. For 2022, the C-Class has been restyled. It comes with an A-frame grille design that features stardust mesh. The reshaped headlights combine with re-chiseled sculpting for a clean look. In addition, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class introduces five additional exterior colors.


For both model years, the C-Class is a well-equipped sedan that is available with equipment like an infotainment system screen, smart device integration, a premium sound system, and more. In 2022, the C-Class gets wireless device charging, a portrait-style display screen, and a next-generation MBUX system. For both years, the cars have an active stop-and-go assist, active driving assist, active lane change assist, and active steering assist.
