Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Price and Specs in South Africa

mercedes A45 AMG (12) (Small)

The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is officially on sale in South Africa, having just launched to the media this week. We have all the South African engine specs, service/maintenance plans details as well as the much anticipated local A45 AMG price.

The new segment leader, at least in terms of power and acceleration figures, the Mercedes Benz A45 AMG is an expensive exercise, if you consider that there are many more hot hatch options that cost significantly less.

However, if you look at it as the most affordable way to buy into the AMG brand, then it becomes a different offering altogether. Featuring a hand built engine, the most powerful production 2.0litre in the world, Mercedes has gone ballistic with this one. If that stressed engine shows it has longevity, this car is very possibly going to be a future classic.
