Mercedes C-Class AMG Sport Edition unveiled

Mercedes C-Class AMG Sport Edition to replace the current AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus models.

Mercedes has spruced up the current C-Class. The AMG Sport Edition will replace the AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus, with the change affecting the Coupe, Estate and Saloon variants.

New additions to the AMG Sport Edition include dark-tinted headlights, high-gloss black grille and an AMG boot lid spoiler on the Saloon and Coupe. The AMG steering wheel, alloy wheels, 15mm lower sports suspension and styling are borrowed from the outgoing AMG Sport.

The interior has been bestowed with AMG Sport Plus seats, which have been upholstered in a fetching black Artico and Dinamica colour with blue and grey stitching. Split folding rear seats have also been added to the Saloon.

Two optional packages are available if you have the readies. The £1,595 Premium Package adds the COMAND Online media interface, heated front seats, Lighting Package, DAB digital radio and a reversing camera, while the Premium Package Plus adds all that and a panoramic glass sunroof for an additional £900.

The AMG Sport Edition trim is available with either a C 220 CDI or C 250 CDI diesel engine. Prices start at £30,170 for the saloon, £31,370 for the estate and £32,455 for the Coupe.

The new Mercedes C-Class was announced ahead of the Detroit motor show in January. New changes include a larger boot, roomier interior, 100kg of weight saving compared to the old model and a new 4-link suspension setup designed to improve handling. No word on a UK price or specs just yet.
