2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

 

Mercedes-Benz already has a bunch of turbocharged engines in its range, but the upcoming A45 will feature the company’s most powerful 4-cylinder vehicle to date. By turbocharging a 2.0-liter engine, expect the A45 to have 330-hp, and 295 lb-ft. of torque. Pair that with a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system, and the A45 turns into a serious competitor in the premium hot-hatch segment.

As easy as it is to get excited about the A45, it’s not coming to the US.  The AMG wizards should, however, showcase this engine in the upcoming CLA, which is a compact four-door coupe that’s much more likely to come stateside.

    It’s good to see the Impreza won’t just be a four-wheel drive Camry again. They were just starting to lose their touch, styling-wise.

    Compaq computers CEO and team did something in the 90′s.  The team used a Saturn, small gas engine which turned on the gizmo, 1000/gal.  Sound familiar ??  what ever happened to it.
