Besides the badge.. and the front brake calipers... no other ways to tell the difference from the outside.

What's different about the brake calipers?

Otherwise, are there differences inside?

Wish they would've differentiated the exhaust tips...

On the 350 you get a 4piston caliper and larger rotors. 250 is a open face 2 piston caliper like you see on most cars

No differences on the inside...

And the 250 has single piston front calipers while the 350 has 4 piston calipers. The rear rotors are also slightly larger on the 350 vs the 250.

Actually, one correction folks regarding the interior. There is one small difference. The drive select controller label is different.

The 350 F-Sport has the "Sport S/S+" indicator because of the Adaptive Variable Suspension while the 250 F-Sport has only "Sport".
