Mercedes-Benz Australia has quietly introduced an additional variant to the 2022 C-Class line-up, based on the entry-level C200.

    Dubbed the 2022 Mercedes-Benz C200 Edition C, the no-cost option package brings a more subdued look compared to the AMG Line appointments standard on the C200 and C300 in Australia. Pricing for the C200 currently starts at $78,900 before on-road costs.

    The C200 Edition C switches out the AMG Line exterior and interior packages for the Avantgarde treatment inside and out, Comfort front seats instead of Sport front seats, and introduces a beige Artico interior option.

    C200 Edition C highlights:

    • Avantgarde exterior (in lieu of AMG Line)
    • Avantgarde interior (in lieu of AMG Line)
    • Comfort front seats
    • ‘Silver grey’ diamond-pattern trim w/ console in gloss black
    • Leather multifunction sports steering wheel
    • 18-inch bi-colour multi-spoke alloy wheels
    • Velour floor mats
    • Rear privacy glass
    • Metallic paint (excl. Manufaktur options)
    • Removes Artico dashboard and upper beltline trim
    • Removes larger front brakes

    Carryover specification from the C200 AMG Line includes:

    • 11.9-inch MBUX portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment display
    • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
    • Fingerprint scanner for driver profiles
    • Satellite navigation
    • Mercedes me Connect app functionality
    • 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
    • Semi-autonomous parking assist
    • Powered boot closing
    • 64-colour ambient lighting
    • Illuminated front door sill with ‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering
    • Keyless entry and start
    • Dual-zone climate control
    • Electrically-adjustable side mirrors with electric folding and heating
    • LED headlights
    • Automatic high-beam
    • Dynamic Select system with four selectable driving modes

    Power in the C200 comes from a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 150kW of power and 300Nm of torque, bolstered by a 48V mild-hybrid system.

    Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes-Benz claims the C200 will accelerate from 0-100 in 7.3 seconds and use a 6.9L/100km on the combined cycle.

    Mercedes-Benz Australia has confirmed with CarExpert that the C200 Edition C is available to order now and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. It’s likely the Edition C will have a shelf life similar to that of Edition 1 models that are produced for the first model year.
