The new Mercedes-Benz AMG Sport category is only in its beginning stages, but it is quickly capturing the attention of luxury and performance car enthusiasts. While the all-new GLE 450 AMG Sport 4MATIC Coupe marked the initial release in the new entry-level performance segment, it was quickly followed by the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport in Kansas City MO. Building on the popularity and momentum of the recently redesigned C-Class Sedan, the 2016 C450 AMG Sport marks a middle ground between the C400 and the C63 AMG.
Expected to arrive at Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City in the fall in 2015, the all-new Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport will contend with models like the Audi S4 and BMW 335i. With elements borrowed from the C400 and C63 AMG, the new C450 AMG Sport is a great option for drivers looking to dip their toes into the high-performance sedan category.
At the heart of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport in Kansas City MO, drivers will find a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 high-performance engine that yields 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque. While that is the same engine used to power the C400, Mercedes-Benz has reworked the power plant to deliver more thrills behind the wheel. That engine teams with a 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission that offers a quick-shifting Sport Plus mode and full manual shifting capabilities.
All that translates to a sedan capable of sprinting from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 155 miles per hour. Those figures meet or exceed those of its class competitors, and with five driving modes, each C450 owner can create a driving experience that meets their unique preferences.
The aforementioned components are what give the all-new C450 such impressive straight-ahead speed, but those attributes are complemented nicely by the permanent 4MATIC all-wheel drive system and an advanced suspension. In fact, much of the C450’s suspension is adapted from that of the C63, including the three-stage adjustable dampers.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport rides on standard 18-inch wheels and features a subtly redesigned front fascia to portray a more aggressive look that matches its performance capabilities.
