Is the Mercedes GLE450 AMG Coupe not quite your speed? The AMG Sport line might have something else for you, in the form of the C450 AMG 4Matic.

The sedan and estate models are meant to bridge the gap between the standard C300 and the Mercedes-AMG C63. Thus, power for the second AMG Sport offering comes from the C400’s 3-liter twin-turbo V6, which has been re-tuned to deliver 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. Nil to 60 comes at 4.9 seconds, with top speed electronically limited to 155 mph. The power is routed to all four corners via a seven-speed automatic, the rear pair of wheels receiving up to two-thirds of said power.

Adaptive suspension is borrowed from the aforementioned C63, which offers three-stage adjustable dampers, while the front axle boasts special steering knuckles and load-bearing joints. Multi-link rear and a stiffer body shell improve overall driving dynamics.

Other features include: five-mode Dynamic Select; MB-Tex upholstery; adaptive braking; USB multimedia system; performance seats; four light-alloy 19-inch wheel options; and collision prevention. The C450 AMG 4Matic will go on sale later this year.
