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.
