Avg. Price: $24,848

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C350 Sport sedan rides on a sport-tuned suspension with agility control and comes equipped with sport body styling, which includes a three-bar chrome grille with the Mercedes star positioned in the center and a unique front air dam with mesh air intakes. Other exterior features for the 2010 C350 Sport include new streamlined side mirrors with integrated turn signals, sport side skirts, a rear apron, dual chrome exhaust tips, and a sport trunk lid spoiler. In addition, the sport sedan has a more aggressive stance, thanks to its staggered 17-inch AMG six-spoke wheels, which are wider in the rear (8.5 inches wide vs. 7.5 inches in the front). The wider wheels in the rear help improve control when accelerating and negotiating turns, according to Mercedes. In addition, Mercedes offers a new Dynamic Handling Package as an option for the C350. The package adds a driver-adjustable suspension, speed-sensitive steering, steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles, and 18-inch AMG twin five-spoke wheels.

The C350 Sport sedan receives a new leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob for 2010. Standard features such as sport-style recessed instrument gauges, a black roof liner, and aluminum trim give the interior a performance-oriented feel, while heated front seats, black Bird's-eye Maple wood trim, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory, and an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat ensure an upscale environment. Other standard interior features for the C350 Sport sedan include dual-zone automatic climate control, electronic cruise control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and an eight-speaker audio system with an in-dash CD player and 5-inch color display with flip-up cover. Mercedes uses MB-Tex, a vinyl-like synthetic material that mimics leather, as its standard upholstery material, although owners can add leather seats as an option. Other options include a 12-speaker, 450-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system, Quickpark parking assist, a panorama roof, and a hard-drive-based navigation system.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG rockets from 0 to 60 in just 4.3 seconds, thanks to its 6.3-liter V8 engine, which produces an impressive 451 hp and a whopping 443 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. The engine links to an AMG SpeedShift Plus seven-speed automatic transmission with four-mode operation, which includes Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus, and Manual driver-selectable settings.

Other features designed by AMG, the in-house sport tuner for Mercedes, include an AMG grille, headlights, front foglights, and rear spoiler, as well as an AMG sport exhaust system. The C63 rides on 18-inch, five-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels.

Inside, the 2010 C63 AMG comes equipped with such standard features as sport seats with Nappa leather and side bolsters, AMG-designed headrests, and an ergonomic three-spoke performance steering wheel.
