Mercedes rings changes with C Class range

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE - Carmel Stewart

MERCEDES is re­vamp­ing and sim­pli­fy­ing part of its C Class range – but not dras­ti­cally so.

A new AMG Sport Edi­tion re­places the AMG Sport and AMG Sport Plus model lines but ‘new’ doesn’t mean any­thing more than the ad­di­tion of a spoiler, tinted head­lamps and a high gloss black grille on the out­side and new up­hol­stery pat­terns and stitch­ing plus alu­minium high­lights in­side.

The AMG body styling, steer­ing wheel, al­loys and 15mm lower sports sus­pen­sion from the out­go­ing AMG Sport model have been re­tained.

The en­gine and trim op­tions have been sim­pli­fied. Pre­vi­ously there were 47 vari­ants, in­clud­ing seven en­gines and three model lines. The 2014 changes have re­duced that to 19 con­sist­ing of two trims and four en­gines.

The new AMG Sport Edi­tion is avail­able on C 220 CDI and C 250 CDI en­gines at an on-the- road price of £30,170 for the sa­loon, £31,370 for the es­tate and £32,455 for the coupé.

Mercedes has added a few spe­cial pack­ages to sweeten the deal – the Pre­mium Pack­age at £1,595 in­cludes CO­MAND Online with Me­dia In­ter­face, re­vers­ing cam­era, heated front seats, light­ing pack­age and DAB dig­i­tal ra­dio.

The Pre­mium Plus Pack­age at £2,495 in­cludes the same con­tent as the Pre­mium pack but with a panoramic glass sun­roof.

RE­VAMPED: Mercedes C-Class AMG.
