|   Thursday, January 15, 2015
The Mercedes C-Class has received a variant developed by the AMG division in the 2015 edition of the Detroit Auto Show. The resulting model is called C450 4MATIC Sport AMG, and is sandwiched between the standard range and performance range.

This model C450 AMG Sport was introduced in Detroit in a sedan and station wagon bodywork variants. Thus, this model is the direct rival of the Audi S4 and BMW 335i. The German manufacturer offers the same engine both for the sedan body and station wagon.


Regardless of the chosen version, it gets a V6 twin-turbo engine displacing 3.0 liters, rated at 367 hp provided at 5,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 517 Nm between 2,000 rpm and 4,200 rpm. The motorization is coupled to a 7G-Tronic transmission that engaging all four wheels through a permanent 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is achieved in 4.9 seconds for the sedan version, and 5.0 seconds for the station wagon version. Also, both body variants have a top speed electronically limited to 250 km / h. But the limitation can be removed and the car will reach around 272 km / h top speed.

From its C63 AMG big brother, the C450 AMG Sport version inherits the front suspension arms shock absorbers and springs and other components like steering and suspension settings level. The 4MATIC system has also been redesigned to deliver power in a 33 : 67 front / rear ratio.

Right from the standard equipment level the wheel hubs have 18 inches in diameter, and are equipped with 225 / 45 tires on the front and 245 / 40 rear, while the braking system hidden behind them has 360 mm diameter discs on front and 320 millimeters in the rear.

On an aesthetic level, the Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport differs from the standard versions through the modified front bumper, which now includes significantly larger vents, large size side mirrors, restyled front grille, tinted chrome finish exhaust pipe and an integrated spoiler over the trunk lid. The interior has been modified subtly by inserting a sport steering wheel, red seat belts, sports seats with red thread sewn upholstery, aluminum pedals and small AMG ornaments.

"With the C450 AMG we present the second sporty and emotionally expressive vehicle in our product line. It combines the power of a strong twin- turbo V6 engine with a high level of emotional expressiveness, and avails itself of the technical DNA of the new C63. The new sports models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: sports car technology and motor racing fascination become more attainable and in the process appeal to a broader customer base" said Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG.

As far as safety goes, the stated purpose of Mercedes-Benz is to provide top-class safety features available to everyone. So the model is equipped with the enhanced Attention Assist fatigue detection system and Collision Prevention Assist Plus which helps prevent rear-end collisions in the standard configuration.


Both comfort and safety are provided by these sophisticated assistance systems. The new C-Class model is already impressing, thanks to its predecessor's excellent results regarding passive safety, but the current model surpasses it and sets new standards.
