The C 250 Sport and C 250 CDI Sport have 204-hp and will come with AMG-tuned suspension, larger disc brakes, speed-sensitive sports steering, sport exhaust system, retuned engine management for more responsive acceleration, and a sport transmission configuration in S and M mode.

In addition, C-Class Coupe buyers can opt for the AMG Plus Sports Package which can be added to all body and engine models. The AMG Plus Sports Package comes with 18-inch AMG seven-twin-spoke wheels, an aerodynamic kit and spoiler lip, sport seats in black ARTICO man-made leather with DINAMICA red contrast stitching, black DINAMICA door panels, three-spoke sports steering wheel, designo seat belts in red (optional), stainless steel pedals, and red contrast stitching on the gear lever, center console armrest, and door panels.

“Refined sportiness is a brand value we hold dear, and with the new Sport models we are shifting the emphasis of the C-Class a little more towards sportiness,” says Dr. Joachim Schmidt,Executive Vice President Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales and Marketing. “This means that in the C-Class, alongside the top-of-the-range C 63 AMG, we have the widest ever line-up of sporty models.”

Unfortunately no pricing was announced.
