The smaller Mercedes-Benz model is finally here. We are talking about the new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, which has been revealed with no camouflage what so ever. In the gallery below we have prepared some images of the production version of the model and we can see a black tape on the lower part of the front bumper, on the grille wings, the side skirts and the center section of the rear diffuser. OK, there is a bit of camouflage, but the rest is clear as the day. We can see that the aero kit the new A45 AMG has is the same one used for the AMG Sport styling package offered on the regular hatchback.
The differences are the honeycomb grille inserts, the tailpipes and the 18-inch multi spoke alloy wheels offered to transfer the output to the road. Under the hood, the model hides a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with direct injection and turbo-charging technology which has been modified. According to a declaration a few months ago, the engine was capable of producing 330 horsepower and more than 400 Nm of torque. Things are a bit different now as we can see that the new AMG engine is capable of much more. In the end, the output reaches 350 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. This means the new A45 is capable of developing more power than the 315 BMW M135 and more than the Audi RS3 Sportback which produces 335 horsepower.
To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have used an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission with dual clutch technology that works together with an all-wheel drive system. The chassis was also modified and now features new suspension and steering system settings and components, but also brakes and electronic aids. Unfortunately the North American customers will not receive the A45 AMG, but instead will get the CLA 45 AMG sports sedan. This model has the same power train and will be introduced to the public in March next year, at the Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale shortly after that.
