i don't know about the interior, but exterior wise, "AMG sport package USA" and "Avantgarde" are not the same...................
i think i might've posted a photo comparison before, comparing the front bumpers of the two.
i'll do this again:
here is E in elegance exterior, which is the same as luxury package USA, chrome trim on the front bumper is quite visible:
elegance/luxury package usually come with 4-slate grille too, i don't know why this one has 3-slate grille.......
here is E in avantgarde exterior:
front bumper is more aggressive than elegance/luxury package USA, and does not have the chrome trim on front bumper...
here is E in AMG sport package exterior:
note that "avantgarde" side skirt and rear bumper are actually the same as "elegance" ("elegance" exterior is the same as "luxury package" in the US). i believe AMG sport package USA shares the same side skirt and rear bumper (but not diffuser) as E63 AMG. someone can correct me if i'm wrong.
hope this helps.

For USA, you have the following options for W212:
1) Elegance styling with Elegance interior (E350/550) - tone on tone - the "Luxury" model
2) AMG styling with Avantgarde interior (E350/550) - tone on black - the "Sport" model
3) E63 AMG with Elegance interior (don't ask why, this is a mess) - tone on tone
For Canada, you have the following options for W212:
1) AMG styling with Avantgarde interior (E350/550, E300 with sport package) - tone on black
2) Avantgarde styling with Avantgarde interior (E300 without sport package) - tone on black
3) E63 AMG with Elegance interior - tone on tone
In Europe, you have Elegance and Avantgarde concepts for both interior and exterior, as well as the AMG styling (exterior).
