Mercedes AMG CLA45 6

After a leak early in 2019, the Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been officially revealed. Herewith the details.

The Mercedes-AMG CLA boasts the same 2.0-litre turbocharged motor as the one found in the all-new A45. The 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder is available in 2 states of tune, with the entry-level CLA 45 boasting 285 kW and 480 Nm, while the CLA 45 S packing 310 kW and 500 Nm. 

Power goes to all 4 corners via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, and performance is sensational. The standard CLA 45 is claimed to hit 100 kph in 4.1 seconds, while the S version is a shade faster at 4.0 seconds. Both cars have a limited top speed of 250 kph. Like the A45, the CLA 45 also boasts drift mode where the 4Matic+ disables power to the front axle. 

Visually, you'll be able to spot the CLA 45 with its bold Panamericana grille at the front and quad exhausts at the rear. Inside, the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 features MBUX infotainment. Naturally, there will be plenty of options to choose from, such as the stunning matte grey paint you see here. The base CLA 45 rides on 18-inch alloys, while the CLA 45 S features 19-inch wheels.
