Our spy photographers confirmed last month’s rumor about Mercedes-Benz working on a brand-new C-Class to fill the gap between the C400 and the more powerful C63 AMG . This confirmation comes by way of a wagon version of the C450 AMG Sport stretching its legs in Germany.
Caught completely undisguised, the second-brawniest current-generation C-Class Wagon sports a more aggressive front bumper that doesn’t stray too far from the piece seen on the regular model and an AMG-style grille that carries just one horizontal bar.
Around back, the differences are less noticeable, with only a dual-exhaust system catching our eyes. The wagon also benefits from a different set of wheels that are similar to some we’ve seen recently from AMG. The "4MATIC" badge on the rear hatch suggests the C450 AMG Sport will arrive with all-wheel-drive.
Scheduled to hit the market sometime in 2015, both the sedan and wagon versions of the C450 will carry a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter V-6. This engine puts out 329 horsepower in the C400 model, so it wouldn’t shocked us to see the hotter C450 AMG Sport carry more than 370 ponies.
