So what was the point of bringing out the AMG Sport Line and C450 for a model year only to change it again? Car companies really have to think things through before rushing this shit to market. Ugh.
It's actually worse than that. 2015 saw the C400 (we reviewed one here: http://www.beyond.ca/review-2015-me...atic/40872.html )
2016 saw the C450 AMG Sport replace the C400, which upgraded it with 30 more horsepower, revised suspension and AMG 33:67 split AWD to get rid of the understeer, as well as tuning to give it shift and overrun exhaust farts.
2017 carries over all the changes from 2016, switches from 7 speed to 9 speed auto, dials in more rear bias (31:69 now), fitted with bigger brakes from the old C63 AMG, and renamed C43 AMG.
So basically, they've been upgrading the S4/S5/335i fighter every single year, and just going nuts with the naming scheme. The AMG Sport had so much backlash for even using the AMG name from some AMG owners that it makes no difference marketing them as full AMGs, so they discontinued the AMG Sport line after only 1 year. Win-win for Mercedes-AMG. Less confusion, same amount of bitching from the label conscious AMG owners, and more sales numbers for AMG.
