Mercedes-Benz UK is introducing the new Mercedes-Benz C Class AMG Sport Edition, which comes with new option packages and simplified product offer. The new AMG Sport Edition replaces the AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus model lines, and can now be availed on all Saloon, Estate and Coupé variants.
While the AMG Sport Edition still features outgoing AMG Sport model’s AMG body styling, steering wheel, alloy wheels and 15 mm lower sports suspension, it now features an AMG boot lid spoiler (saloon and coupé), dark-tinted headlamps and high-gloss black grille. Inside the cabin, one can find AMG Sport Plus seats upholstered in black Artico and Dinamica with blue/grey contrast stitching.
The split folding rear seats that are already standard in estate and coupé could now be found in the saloon. Aside from the dark brushed aluminum trim, the gear shift gaiter and the Dinamica-covered door panel trim now feature grey contrast stitching.
Once fitted with the optional 18-inch seven-spoke AMG alloy wheels (£300 including VAT), the AMG Sport Edition (£1,500) now represents a 50 percent saving compared to the outgoing AMG Sport Plus model (£3,000) over the Executive SE model line. Likewise, customers can also avail of two optional packages: Premium and Premium Plus.
The Premium Package, priced at (£1,595 including VAT, includes COMAND Online with Media Interface, reversing camera, heated front seats, Lighting Package and DAB digital radio. The Premium Plus Package, priced at £2,495 including VAT, features the same content as the Premium pack, with the addition of a panoramic glass sunroof.
Before, a customer could also choose between 47 variants of the C Class; now the new 2014 enhancements trimmed that to just 19. The new AMG Sport Edition is available on C 220 CDI and C 250 CDI engines from £30,170 OTR (saloon), £31,370 OTR (estate) and £32,455 OTR (coupé).
