Auto Expo 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG debut (10)

Underlying the growing significance of the increasing AMG customer base, Mercedes-Benz India also unveiled the CLA 45 AMG, which is a unique and a highly desirable car with all the characteristic DNA of an AMG. The expressive design idiom of the CLA has been enhanced by Mercedes-AMG with some characteristic AMG elements – and the result is a new design icon. A high-tech package which includes the most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine in the world as well as performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the CLA 45 AMG embodies Driving Performance at its best. The combination of high performance and torque, together with the performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, gives the CLA 45 AMG driving characteristics almost on a par with those of a sports car.

The AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine, with a maximum output of 265 kW (360 hp) and up to 450 Newton metres of torque, is the most powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine in series production anywhere in the world. The performance coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and its top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited). Other highlights include the gravity-die sandcast all-aluminum crankcase, weight-optimized crank assembly with forged steel crankshaft and forged pistons with friction-optimised piston rings, NANOSLIDE cylinder wall technology, air-to-water intercooler, alternator management and ECO start/stop function.
