A sports suspension and 18-inch AMG alloys (or optional 19-inch rims) will offer an outstanding driving experience, according to the German firm.
This is the fifth generation of the AMG C-Class, the heritage of which dates back to the C36 AMG (1993). It was the very first vehicle developed as a joint venture between Daimler-Benz and AMG.
The new model will go on sale across Europe next year
