2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - INTERIOR
- Published on: 2/28/2021
- Like the S-Class, the new C-Class is equipped with the second generation Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). The vehicle interior becomes even more digital and intelligent, as both the hardware and software work seamlessly to provide brilliant images on the LCD screens that make it easy to control vehicle and comfort functions.
The driver display and media display offer a holistic, aesthetic experience. The information is presented in a clearly structured way. With the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz had developed a new display aesthetic, which is now used as the basis for other models.
The look of the screens can be individualized with three display styles (Discreet, Sporty, Classic) and three modes (Navigation, Assistance, Service).
The voice assistant "Hey Mercedes" becomes more interactive and capable of learning by activating online services in the Mercedes me App. Moreover, certain actions can be performed even without the activation keyword "Hey Mercedes". These include taking a telephone call. "Hey Mercedes" also explains vehicle functions, and, for example, can help when asked how to connect a smartphone via Bluetooth or where the first-aid kit can be found.
"Hey Mercedes" is also able to recognize different vehicle occupants by their voices.
Much like the S-Class, the new C-Class features a dashboard that is divided into an upper and a lower section, which host new design elements such as the round aircraft engine nacelle-like air vents, and an opulent expanse of trim.
The driver area features a free-standing high-resolution LCD screen which appears to float in front of the wing profile and the expanse of trim. This sets the driver display apart from traditional cockpits that feature analogue, classic round dials. Customers have a choice between a 10.25-inch (26.0 cm) or a 12.3-inch (31.2 cm) version of the LCD screen.
The driver and media displays offer a holistic, aesthetic experience. The look of the screens can be individualized with three display styles (Discreet, Sporty, Classic) and three modes (Navigation, Assistance, Service). In "Sporty", the colour red is predominant and the central rev counter has a dynamic design. The new C-Class is equipped with ambient lighting featuring optical fibres as standard.
Four-cylinder gasoline engine also with a second-generation ISG
The four-cylinder M 254 petrol engine with a second-generation starter-generator creates an additional output of up to 20 hp and 147 lb-ft more torque for the new C-Class. As a result of energy recovery and the ability to "glide" with the engine switched off, the gasoline engine is highly efficient.
In the M 254, Mercedes-Benz has for the first time combined all the innovations of the modular engine family of four and six-cylinder units in a single engine. They include NANOSLIDE cylinder coating and CONICSHAPE cylinder honing (trumpet honing).
The 9G-TRONIC transmission was developed further for adapting the ISG, and is installed in all C-Class models. The electric motor, power electronics, and transmission cooler are now housed in or near the transmission.
