Press info:The A 45 AMG and the CLA 45 AMG see Mercedes-AMG embarking on a new era. For the first time in the company's history extending back over more than 45 years, Mercedes-Benz's performance brand is offering two high-performance cars powered by a
four-cylinder engine. Both new models provide an exciting introduction to the world of AMG. With an output of 265 kW (360 hp) and a peak torque of 450 Newton metres, the AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine is the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production. It is also exceptionally efficient and meets the requirements of the EU6 emissions standards. NEDC combined fuel consumption of 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres puts the A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG at the top of their segments. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive sets new standards in dynamic handling.
