Mercedes-Benz is relocating to a new system for efficiency versions, launching its 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Sport line that will slot above the common autos, yet below the fully fledged Mercedes-AMG providings. The excellent instance of how this all looks could be seen with the C-Class– we’ve currently driven (and taken pleasure in) the standard C300 and also C400 providings, and also we’re definitely geeked to check the Mercedes-AMG C63. Slotting in the center, however, is this new C450 AMG Sport, which makes its debut at the Detroit Auto Show this week.
Engine and Performance
Using the very same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 located in the C400, the C450 extracts extra power mainly by boosting the turbo increase stress. However there are additionally welcome modifications: The seven-speed torque-converter automatic shifts faster, and also in hand-operated mode there are no automated changes– not also at kickdown or redline. The exhaust system operates with less back pressure, which adds a visible exhaust grumble and also improves power.
There’s more: The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG’s 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system sends a higher percentage of its 384 lb-ft of torque to the back wheels: 67 percent, versus 55 percent in the C400. As well as the framework has been improved with bespoke steering knuckles as well as axle elements, as well as the adaptive sports suspension.
2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG Exterior Design
Outside, the C450 AMG stays relatively near the C400 with the Sport package as well as its AMG appearance touches. The main distinction is the “diamond” grille as well as the separated exhaust suggestions left and right. High-gloss black exterior trim is a no-cost option. Inside, there are sporting activity seats, numerous AMG badges, as well as optional red seatbelts. On the whole, however, the differences between the C400 and the C450 AMG are much smaller sized than those in between the C450 AMG and the AMG C63; this cannot be unintended, as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG and also the C400 will certainly be offered along with each other for simply a year before the former supplants the latter. Clearly, Mercedes is keen to protect the identification of the full-fledged AMG vehicles, even as it includes this brand-new, intermediate trim level.
