The Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC is a thoroughbred sports car, complete with its top-of-the-range 381hp 4-cylinder petrol engine.
The driving pleasure is not only on the racetrack but also in its daily routine with its exceptional traction and performance. The sporty handling-oriented AMG all-wheel drive and the outstanding effiency of the AMG 4-cylinder turbo engine have been combined to form a package desired by sport car fans.
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 the entire DNA to make it a perfect representative of the AMG's Driving Performance brand claim.
For maximum lateral support in every corner, the interior features AMG Performance seats with integrated head restraints and AMG badge for driver and front passenger. They are upholstered in black ARTICO leather/DINAMICA microfibre with red contrast stitching and match the 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel with perforated leather in the grip area and red contrast stitching. The CLA 45 4MATIC also features:
The AMG design of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 gives the expressive and luxurious exterior and 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 individualise 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. Both versions feature plenty of athletic features to support this powerful set-up: from the AMG Sport suspension and transmission to the performance-orientated 4MATIC all-wheel drive system and 19” AMG multi-spoke Alloy wheels in titanium grey finish.
The outstanding performance of the Mercedes CLA 45 is the result of extensive development work. From a displacement of just 2 litres, this AMG 2.0 tire 4 cylinder turbocharged engine generates 280 kW (381hp), which represents a benchmark output of 140kW (191 hp) per litre of engine displacement. This power exerts 475 Nm of torque and can reach 100km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
Among the innovations contributing to thrilling handling dynamics are the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmissions with three transmission modes, sports steering, sports suspension, the AMG axles and the high performance brake system.
