Hot Hatch A45 AMG by Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz unveiled their A45 AMG model at the Geneva Motor Show. The impressive output of 360 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque is generated by the vehicle’s 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The powerful engine is connected to a dual-clutch AMG gearbox with seven speeds and AWD thanks to the 4MATIC system. Less than 4.5 seconds is what it takes this hot hatch to go from zero to 62 mph. The maximum speed is 155 mph. A stiffer suspension was also added to enhance the sporty driving experience. The upgrades of the exterior appearance include black rims, exhaust system with double rectangular tips, mirror caps, black details on the chin spoiler and red calipers. The interior was vamped up with a carbon fiber-inspired dashboard with red accents. The A45 AMG is said to become available in Germany in June. However, no information is available regarding when it will appear in the US showrooms.
