Mercedes C-Class AMG Sport Edition launched

Fresh specification for current Mercedes C-Class, as new model is due later this year

Details on the new Mercedes C-Class AMG Sport Edition have been revealed – replacing the AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus in the current C-Class line-up. The new trim level will be available on all saloon, estate and coupe versions of the C-Class, and will be seen as a last hurrah before the car is replaced later this year.

AMG Sport Edition cars will get the AMG bodykit, steering wheel, alloy wheels and sports suspension that were included on the old AMG Sport model, but will also have dark-tinted headlights, a high-gloss black grille, and a rear spoiler on the boot of the saloon and coupe cars.

Inside the car, AMG’s sports seats are fitted in black with blue and grey stitching. This stitching continues on the door panels and gearstick for an added sporty touch.

There are two option packs available for the new model. For £1,595, the Premium Package adds COMAND Online with Media Interface (a multimedia and navigation system), a camera for reversing, heated front seats, upgraded lights, and a DAB radio. The Premium Plus Package is an extra £900 and adds a panoramic glass sunroof to the Premium Package, which should make the interior feel lighter and more spacious.

The new Mercedes C-Class 2014 is due out later this year and the AMG Sport Edition of the outgoing car is part of Mercedes’ strategy to streamline the existing C-Class range. Previously there were 47 trim and engine combinations but that has now been reduced to just 19.

The AMG Sport Edition is available on all C220 CDI and C250 CDI diesel models and prices for the saloon, estate and coupe start at £30,170, £31,370 and £32,455 respectively.
