Launched at the same time as its station wagon variant, the new C450 AMG Sport 4Matic is part of a new brand spin-off called AMG Sport, and it will apparently sit between the regular Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the full-blown C63 monster. In essence, the car is actually the second AMG Sport variant to be unveiled, after the GLE450 AMG Coupe crossover introduced the new sub-brand to the world a couple of months before the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Based on the C400 4Matic, the new model has been thoroughly re-engineered by Mercedes-AMG to offer better performance and aims to introduce a larger group of Mercedes-Benz customers to the magic of AMG.

Although an unprecedented move for the three-pointed star, both Audi and BMW have been offering sporty performance sub-brands for years now, with Audi being the most experienced in this area with its large array of "S" versions sitting under the fully-fledged "RS" models. Even though they are paired with different transmissions, the two Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport 4Matic variants (sedan and station wagon) and the GLE450 AMG Coupe 4Matic share the same engine. An all-new, twin-turbocharged, three-liter V-6 offering 367 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque.

Connected with a seven-speed automatic transmission instead of the nine-speed found in the GLE Coupe, the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic can hit 62 mph from a standing start in just 4.9 seconds, making it quicker than any of its rivals from this perspective. As it also comes with a 4Matic all-wheel drive system massaged by AMG to have an even more pronounced rear-biased torque split, the new C-Class model is following in the footsteps of the Audi S4 in terms of all-weather performance.

Updated 08/04/2015: Mercedes announced prices for the C450 AMG which will arrive at U.S. dealers in September. Prices will start from $50,800.

The model comes in standard with five-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with a high-sheen finish, but different sets of 19-inch AMG rims in a wider variety of designs are also available for those interested in a different look.

Even though it is a special model in the C-Class range, albeit not as special as the bonkers Mercedes-AMG C63, the new C450 AMG Sport 4Matic doesn’t actually look all that different compared with a "run-of-the-mill" C400 4Matic fitted with the AMG bodykit. This will probably not go well with those preferring something more distinctive-looking, but considering how few understated sports cars are out there nowadays, the somewhat sleeper look will probably be appreciated by plenty of customers. As far as the front end is concerned, the only major difference consists of the standard "star grille" with diamond mesh pattern and a single horizontal bar that flanks the emblem on each side. The A-shaped front bumper is identical to the one featured by the optional AMG bodykit on any other C-Class.

Moving on to the side, there are a number of AMG badges to be found on the front wings and black-painted exterior mirror housings, waistline trim strip and window frames. The model comes in standard with five-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with a high-sheen finish, but different sets of 19-inch AMG rims in a wider variety of designs are also available for those interested in a different look. At the rear is where the biggest differences compared with a normal C-Class are to be found, as the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic comes with four exit pipes for the exhaust system which are somewhat similar to those from the C63, and aerodynamic diffuser, a small trunk spoiler and special badging.

Combined with red safety belts from designo and black floor mats with red edging, the interior atmosphere is clearly that of car that goes fast.

While at first glance it may look quasi-identical with the one from a regular C-Class, the interior of the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic is much more distinctive than the exterior. As standard, the upholstery is made from a mixture of Artico man-made leather and a microfiber material called Dinamica (think: Ultrasuede or Alcantara only from a different company) with red contrast stitching, while Artico can also be found on the upper edges of the body, the armrestsm the doors center panels and parts of the center console. Combined with red safety belts from designo and black floor mats with red edging, the interior atmosphere is clearly that of car that goes fast.

The AMG seats have a much sportier layout with better lateral support, while the three-spoke steering wheel has a flat bottom and is engulfed in nappa leather. Since this isn’t your average c-Class, the instrument panel is also using the AMG signature of a "checkered flag" design, while the speedometer uses specific AMG typography and red needles to show a scale of 175 mph.

Last but not least, the model comes equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive in standard, which sends 67 percent of the available torque toward the rear wheels and 33 percent toward the front for sportier maneuvers.

Even though it has been modified by Mercedes-AMG engineers to offer more power and torque than the version found in the C400, the new three-liter V-6 will probably be the first engine not to be individually hand-built by a single person in Affalterbach, like each and every AMG powerplant in history. Instead, the powerplant will likely be manufactured alongside its brother from the C400 model in regaulr Mercedes-Benz engine plants. With an output of 367 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, the twin-turbocharged six-cylinder is by far the most powerful in its segment, trouncing the Audi S4 engine by 31 horsepower and 59 pound-feet of torque.

The car’s class-leading power and torque aren’t the only new features though, as the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic has borrowed a couple of front and rear suspension elements straight from the Mercedes-AMG C63 monster. On top of that, drivers can customize the model’s dynamics using an array of AMG-specific driving programs called Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. Last but not least, the model comes equipped with 4Matic all-wheel drive in standard, which sends 67 percent of the available torque toward the rear wheels and 33 percent toward the front for sportier maneuvers. Unlike the GLE450 AMG Coupe, the C-Class by AMG Sport pairs its engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission with sportier settings, which allows the model to have a naught to 62 mph acceleration time of 4.9 seconds.

BMW is apparently looking into releasing an M-Performance version of the 3 Series named the M340i,

While not officially confirmed as of yet, an M-Performance variant of the BMW 3 Series is likely to be offered after the lineup gets through a mid-cycle facelift in 2015. Using a more powerful variant of the three-liter inline-six from the current 335i range-topper, the possible M340i is expected to offer less horsepower and torque than the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic. Despite a 30 to 40 horsepower discrepancy and even more when it comes to torque figures, the BMW should accelerate a bit faster than its three-pointed star counterpart when and if equipped with an xDrive all-wheel drive system. Speaking of which, the M340i should come in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants if other M-Performance models are to be taken as an example. As far as pricing goes, expect the model to also feature a $50,000+ starting price, maybe a little bit less in rwd guise.

Audi S4

With the RS4 no longer available with a sedan body since 2012, the S4 is the current range-topping entry-level executive Audi in the United States. Its supercharged 3.0-liter TFSI (V-6) engine churns out 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The oomph is just enough to catapult the sedan from 0 to 62 mph in five seconds flat on its way to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 miles per hour. Power aside, the Audi S4 received its most recent facelift in 2012 and its exterior design isn’t exactly fresh . However, the exclusive body features it has over the standard A4, such as the front grille and the bumper, are likely to keep it attractive in the eyes of Audi enthusiasts. The 2014 S4 is available in only two trims. The Premium Plus starts from $48,100, while the Prestige model wears a $54,000 sticker. The latter is slightly more expensive than the current Mercedes-Benz C400 4Matic, but prices should level up when the C450 AMG Sport 4Matic arrives in showrooms.

Even though both Audi and BMW have more experience and much more models in this soon-to-be-crowded performance segment, Mercedes-AMG’s first try at creating a "nearly there" sub-brand seems to have started off on the right foot. With a hefty amount of power and torque at its disposal, the new C450 AMG Sport 4Matic sounds like a great way of entering in the Mercedes-AMG universe without throwing loads of cash (not as much, at least), not to mention the fact that it also offers all-weather performance that’s to its standard and rear-biased all-wheel drive system. Even though it isn’t as fast as the smaller and cheaper CLA45 AMG, it should find its own set of customers that want someting sporty but not as hardcore as a full-blown AMG model.

Press Release

Driving Performance – the AMG brand promise and the typical character traits can now be experienced by an even broader target group. The new C 450 AMG 4MATIC expands the product range of the performance and sports car brand of Mercedes-Benz with another new AMG sports model. As an attractive entry into the world of AMG, the C 450 AMG 4MATIC combines a 270-kW (367-hp) 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine with a permanent Performance all-wheel-drive system and sophisticated suspension technology adopted from the Mercedes-AMG C 63. The result is fascinating Driving Performance and the hallmark emotional expressiveness of the brand. The new AMG sports model is available as a saloon and an estate model, and makes the extensive product line-up within the C-Class range even more attractive. The market launch of the new C 450 AMG 4MATIC will start in mid-2015.

The new AMG sports models are distinguished by convincing product substance. Even at first glance, the characteristic AMG body styling leaves no doubt that this model is part of the Mercedes-AMG model family. Another indication for the new model strategy is found in the form of a special AMG badge on the front wings. From an engineering standpoint the AMG sports models perfectly deliver on the visual promise of a sporty character with a powerful engine, the standard-fit all-wheel drive system with rear-biased torque split, and sophisticated suspension solutions.

In addition to the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupé, the C 450 AMG 4MATIC represents the second stage of the new model initiative. More emotionally inspiring AMG sports models will follow.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH explains: "With the C 450 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 C 63. 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".

Authentic driving dynamics thanks to hallmark AMG DNA

The new C 450 AMG 4MATIC is based on the most powerful production model of the C-Class, the C 400 4MATIC. The engineers have revised many technical features of the new AMG sports model. Their objective: a high level of authentic driving dynamics geared towards the Mercedes-AMG C 63. To this end, a host of suspension components were adopted from the top-of-the-line V8 model. The driver also feels the DNA of the C 63 in the application of the engine and transmission management. Agility and sportiness dominate the intense driving experience in the C 450 AMG 4MATIC on every kilometre.

The new 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine is part of the BlueDIRECT engine family from Mercedes-Benz. Technical advances including a modified boost pressure allowed the AMG engineers to increase the engine’s power output and torque. With 270 kW (367 hp) and 520 Newton metres the V6 engine sets new standards in its segment – which is evident in the convincing performance: a sprint time from zero to 100 km/h of 4.9 seconds (Estate: 5.0 seconds) underscores the sporty temperament of the C 450 AMG 4MATIC. With a combined fuel consumption of 7.6 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 178 grams per kilometre (Estate: 7.7 litres and 180 g CO2 per km) the new top-of-the-line V6 model defines an absolute top position in the competitive environment.

Supreme or dynamic: the choice is yours

Thanks to a hefty torque curve the new AMG sports model is agile, direct and dynamic. With the help of various AMG-specific drive programmes the driver is able to tailor the character of the C 450 AMG 4MATIC to his or her personal preferences: the modes "Eco", "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus" as well as "Individual" are available to choose from for this purpose. The drive programmes adjust the suspension, steering and powertrain as desired, and are selected conveniently with the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT switch to the left of the touchpad.

Especially the "Sport Plus" programme delivers impressive hallmark AMG dynamics and enhances the emotional appeal: partial cylinder suppression during gear changes by means of a momentary and precisely defined retardation of ignition and injection under full throttle speeds up the gear changes, and can also be acoustically experienced by the driver. The emotional double-declutching functions during downshifts and the "exhaust rumbling" in overrun mode provide the fitting accompaniment. The throaty engine sound – a hallmark AMG experience – also plays a crucial role in the most powerful V6 model: to this end, the engineers have developed a new sports exhaust system with lower back-pressure and reduced weight.

The driving sensation is also characterised by the set-up of the accelerator pedal: the more the driver changes the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT settings from "Eco" towards "Sport Plus", the more spontaneous and dynamic is the throttle response of the twin-turbo V6 engine. The driver also experiences authentic and emotional dynamics during engine start if desired: when the twin-turbo V6 engine is started in the "Sport Plus" drive programme, the engine speed quickly jumps to 2000 rpm for a moment before immediately settling back down to idle speed. Whether the driver wants to experience the engine start accompanied by a sporty or a more subdued sound depends on the most recently activated drive programme – it remains stored for four hours.

- image 610202

The "Eco" programme integrates an ECO start/stop function and a sailing function to reduce fuel consumption: when the driver releases the accelerator in a speed range between 60 and 160 km/h, the clutch of the transmission is disengaged and the engine is decoupled from the powertrain. The electronics reduce the engine speed to idle level, and the driving resistance is reduced by the compression and frictional forces of the engine in overrun mode.

7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with short response times

The 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission responds with superior composure or maximum spontaneity depending on the driver’s preference and selected drive programme. The "Sport Plus" mode delivers thrillingly short response times: the driver’s shift commands are implemented at lightning speed – the drivetrain responds spontaneously and precisely. The development engineers also take advantage of numerous hardware and software solutions of the C 63 in this regard. The ’M’ button on the centre console allows savouring the high pulling power across the entire rev range. In manual transmission mode the 7G-TRONIC PLUS no longer shifts to the next higher gear on its own, not even when prompted by kick-down or upon reaching the redline speed. The driver alone makes the decisions about his or her shift request via the steering-wheel paddle shifters.

The momentary ’M’ mode offers another feature: it combines the performance of manual gear changes with automatic upshifts and downshifts. The driver has the option to shift up or down at any time with the paddle shifters. If no gear change is requested, the transmission independently reverts to the automatic shift mode after a defined period of time has passed.

The 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission features a dual-turbine torsional damper with speed-sensitive centrifugal pendulum, which minimises vibrations and enhances the passengers’ perceived comfort.

AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with special axles and adjustable dampers

Agility and sportiness: in the new C 450 AMG 4MATIC the driver can experience on every kilometre why AMG has been successful in motor racing as the sports car and performance brand of Mercedes-Benz for more than four decades. The basis for this intense experience is the combination of permanent Performance all-wheel-drive system and the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension. The 3-stage damper adjustment borrows from the top-of-the-line V8 model Mercedes-AMG C 63, and combines high agility with superior everyday practicality.

The highlight of the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension is the combination of independently developed axle components with high aluminium content and electronically controlled shock absorbers with 3-stage adjustment range. The driver of a C 450 AMG 4MATIC can select his or her tailor-made suspension set-up at the push of a button. The spectrum ranges from balanced long-distance comfort to maximum sportiness.

2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4MATIC High Resolution Exterior
- image 610203

The technical substance of the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension is characterised by components with sophisticated design: the four-link front axle is fitted with special steering knuckles and load-bearing joints; all components were optimised in terms of rigidity. A more negative camber on the front axle and on the multi-link rear axle enhances lateral dynamics. Stiffening of the body shell improves steering behaviour, feedback during cornering, and tyre noise. The elastokinematics of both axles were designed to be more rigid in general. All these measures improve the precision and agility, and boost the dynamics. In addition, the driver benefits from reduced body roll, higher lateral acceleration, better traction, and strong neutral handling at the limit. In short: the C 450 AMG 4MATIC is a very agile sports model on one hand, while optimised pull rods and front-axle carrier mounts ensure the hallmark Mercedes long-distance comfort on the other.

Optimal traction thanks to Performance all-wheel drive

The all-wheel-drive system familiar from a number of AMG high-performance cars is also being used in the C 450 AMG 4MATIC. The perfect grip during acceleration effectively prevents losses caused by slip. For thrilling driving dynamics 33 percent of the engine power is sent to the front axle and 67 percent to the rear axle. The rear-biased torque split results in higher agility around the vehicle’s vertical axis. Another major factor in this is the sportier set-up of the ESP® with Curve Dynamic Assist. The tangible effects for sporty drivers are lateral dynamics and cornering performance increased to an above-average level.

Steering and braking system support a dynamic driving style

The electro-mechanical speed-sensitive sports steering supports tracking a precise line and a dynamic driving style. The agile handling benefits from the direct and constant AMG-specific steering ratio including optimised tuning and response. The steering forces are adapted electronically to the given vehicle speed in optimal fashion. In addition, the optimal steering characteristics are selected depending on the activated drive programme – in the "Sport" and "Sport Plus" modes to deliver a sporty steering feel for a dynamic driving style on twisty roads or to deliver a comfortable steering feel in the "Eco" or "Comfort" modes. The "Individual" programme offers an additional choice. For example, it allows combining sporty firm steering characteristics with a comfortable suspension set-up – or vice-versa.

The sports braking system of the C 450 AMG 4MATIC impresses with fade-free and effective stopping power. Vented brake discs at all four corners measuring 360 millimetres in diameter at the front and 320 millimetres at the rear as well as grey brake callipers with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering are part of the standard equipment.
Design elements bear typical AMG signature

The fascination of motor racing in everyday life – the C 450 AMG 4MATIC incorporates this combination visually as well: the second AMG sports model immediately demonstrates that it is part of the unique AMG family. Dominating design elements are the AMG body styling, the light-alloy wheels and the special AMG badge on the front wings. They underscore the progressive nature and performance of the brand. The engine cover with red aluminium insert likewise visualises the strengths of the new twin-turbo six-cylinder engine.

2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4MATIC High Resolution Exterior

The AMG body styling includes the front bumper with sporty distinctive air intakes, diamond meshes, silver chrome trim, as well as the rear bumper with matt iridium silver diffuser insert. The saloon is equipped with a separation edge on the boot lid, the estate with a roof spoiler. Both additionally increase grip on the rear axle.

Silver chrome and high-gloss black exterior elements lend the C 450 AMG 4MATIC a sporty-expressive character. The radiator grille sports a high-gloss black louvre and chrome inserts. The diamond grille adorned with chrome pins adds special flair. Additional highlights are the black exterior mirror housings, the high-gloss black waistline trim strip and window frame, and the two chrome-plated dual tailpipe trim elements.
Customers can opt for the complementary Night package, which adds heat-insulating dark tinted glass rearward of the B-pillar, high-gloss black front bumper trim, a high-gloss black diffuser-look insert at the rear, and two black chrome-plated dual tailpipe trim elements.
5-spoke black AMG light-alloy wheels with a high-sheen finish round out the design perfectly. Size 225/45 R 18 tyres on 7.5 x 18 light-alloy wheels are fitted at the front, while the rear axle comes with 245/40 R 18 tyres on 8.5 x 18 wheels. Attractive 48.3-cm (19") light-alloy wheels in various designs are optionally available for even more individualisation.

Interior with exclusive, sporty flair

The C 450 AMG 4MATIC fascinates with exclusivity and sportiness in the interior as well. The pleasant touch and feel of the materials and the quality of workmanship ensure a convincing value appeal and an emotional passenger experience.

The ARTICO/DINAMICA upholstery and the instrument panel trimmed with black ARTICO man-made leather convey the sporty ambience in superior fashion. ARTICO is also used on the upper edges of the body, the armrests, the door centre panels and the centre console. Red contrasting topstitching, designo red safety belts and black floor mats with red edging add attractive highlights. The aluminium trim pieces with light-tone longitudinal grain embedded in the instrument panel and the doors provide effective contrasts.

Sports seats with AMG-specific seat upholstery layout and pronounced lateral support offer long-distance comfort and brace the passengers during dynamic cornering. A fitting complement to the sporty handling is the 3-spoke nappa leather multifunction sports steering wheel with flat bottom. The convincing looks and touch and feel comes in part also courtesy of loving details such as red contrasting topstitching, the moulded grip area, steering-wheel paddle shifters and the silver chrome steering wheel trim.
