Mercedes' A, C, E and S-class ranges are in line for new AMG Sport variants
Mercedes-Benz is developing an extended range of AMG Sport models to be positioned underneath its traditional line of AMG cars, Autocar can reveal.
Intended to challenge the various performance orientated models from the Audi Sport and BMW M Performance line-ups, the new AMG Sport models are set to receive exclusive exterior and interior styling touches and upgraded engines.
They'll also use uniquely calibrated chassis tuning and electronics, according to sources familiar with Mercedes-Benz’s plans.
As with the performance car strategies pursued by Audi and BMW, Mercedes-Benz plans to offer its upcoming AMG Sport models with a choice of either petrol or diesel engines, although not in every model.
Among the features differentiating them from the standard Mercedes-Benz models upon which they are base will be widened tracks similar to those used by full-blown AMG models.
