Mercedes CLA45 AMG – Design & Engine & Price
The photo gallery shows the aesthetic changes “suffered” by the four-door coupe, the new aerodynamic kit, including front spoiler extensions, generous air intakes, a rear deflector and twin tailpipes. The AMG wheels aren’t missing, behind which we find hide red calipers.
According to the first information and judging by the technology borrowing logic Mercedes CLA45 AMG will be powered by the same petrol engine found on the Mercedes A45 AMG. It’s about the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine , capable of developing 360 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque (450 Nm). The unit will be assisted by the same seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Earlier this month, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the German officials have revealed that the upcoming Mercedes A45 AMG will be able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and the starting price is estimated at over EUR 50,000. We can expect somewhat similar figures for the new Mercedes CLA45 AMG, and o top speed around 155 mph.
