What’s the difference between Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Benz?
While all Mercedes-Benz cars are impressive, some set bold new standards for performance and looks. Chief among these are the vehicles bearing the name AMG, a world-renowned mark of excellence.
If you’re looking for the best that Mercedes-Benz has to offer, it’s important to consider what sets AMG models apart.
AMG is short for Aufecht, Melcher, and Großaspach, the division of Mercedes-Benz that produces performance vehicles. Named after some of the most important engineers in the company’s history. This division creates vehicles with advanced engines, aerodynamic bodies, and high-speed capabilities.
Enhanced Engines: With the exception of 6-cylinder models, all of the engines produced by AMG are handcrafted. These devices have significantly higher horsepower and torque than the ones used in standard vehicles. A C63 AMG car, for example, has 457 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.2 s. By contrast, the standard Mercedes-Benz version of this model has 186 hp and takes 9.8 s to reach 100 km/h.
Improved Interiors: Designed to create a sportier aesthetic, AMG models make heavy use of carbon accents. They also have bucket seats and alcantara.
Exterior Optimisation. AMG models also have sportier exteriors compared to their standard counterparts, notably in that they feature larger alloy wheels.
Other Features. AMG versions have better suspension. Enjoy a closer fit between the transmission and the engine, and have sportier noise than standard versions.
