Changes to the 2022 Mercedes-Benz Models
The addition of an all-new bread-and-butter C-Class sedan is the most significant product news for Mercedes-Benz for 2022. New versions of the C-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will follow the compact sedan, but those won't come until the 2023 model year. The introduction of the first member of the new Mercedes EQ sub-brand of electric luxury vehicles is the other banner headline for 2022. Constructed on a purpose-built electric vehicle (EV) architecture, the "cab-forward" EQS luxury sedan brings S-Class levels of luxury and style to the battery-electric sedan market. Also, a new AMG SL debuts with room for four passengers.
On the tech front for 2022, Mercedes-Benz continues to improve its MBUX infotainment system. The EQS, C-Class, and new SL all feature MBUX 2.0, a heavily enhanced system that offers 50 percent more processing power and enhanced voice control functions than the previous system. In some models, it also powers an augmented-reality head-up display.
Except for the all-new EQS, C-Class sedan, and SL convertible, the rest of the Mercedes-Benz model lineup for 2022 boasts only modest changes.
