Mercedes CLA 45 AMG

     The AMG design of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45gives the expressive, avantgarde exterior an even more powerful appearance. The AMG radiator grille sports a twin louvre in matt titanium grey finish. And the AMG front apron, the AMG side sill panels and the AMG rear apron in diffuser look set highlights with their design elements in matt titanium grey finish. 

Sporty refinements also include the 45.7 cm (18-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels painted in titanium grey and with a high-sheen finish, the black flics above the outer air intakes as well as the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome-plated tailpipe trim elements featuring a twin-pipe design. In order to further individualize the appearance of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 and make it more dynamic, the AMG Performance Studio also offers two attractive design variants: the AMG Night package with elements in high-gloss black, and the AMG Exterior Carbon-fiber package.

Mercedes-AMG kicks off the automotive spring of 2013 in the "Big Apple" in dynamic style as the CLA 45 AMG celebrates its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show. The philosophy behind this four-door mid-series coupé matches that of the successful CLS 63 AMG, the trendsetter among four-door high-performance coupés. A glance at this high-tech package suffices to show that the CLA 45 AMG also has all the typical DNA to make it a perfect representative of the AMG's Driving Performance brand claim: with a peak output of 265 kW (360 hp) and maximum torque of 450 Newton meters, its turbocharged engine is not only the most powerful four-cylinder unit in series production anywhere in the world but also a highly efficient one that meets the EU6 emissions standard. With fuel consumption of 6.9 liters per 100 km according to NEDC combined figures, the CLA 45 AMG meets even the most exacting requirements. The performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive of the CLA 45 AMG similarly sets a new benchmark in its competitive segment.

Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "With the CLA 45 AMG, Mercedes-AMG is launching a unique and highly desirable automobile with all the typical DNA of AMG. A high-tech package that includes the most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine in the world as well as performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, it embodies Driving Performance at its best."

The new four-door high-performance coupé offers an exceptional combination of an excitingly sporty driving experience, extravagant design and exclusive individuality. With the CLA 45 AMG Mercedes-AMG is establishing a completely new segment – as it did previously with the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake (2012) and the CLS 55 AMG (2004). At the time of their launch, neither of these AMG models had any direct rivals, but went on to inspire other automotive manufacturers. Turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission - the CLA 45 AMG features the same drive system that is already powering the A 45 AMG to deliver highly dynamic and efficient performance.
