Mercedes-Benz is showing off it’s A45 AMG at the Geneva Motor Show, and while we won’t get this vehicle in the US, we will get its powertrain in a more attractive package with the CLA 45 AMG.
The A45 uses 4Matic all-wheel drive, and manages to put out an impressive 360 hp from a tiny 2.0L turbocharged engine. This gets to the wheels through a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission which is built to cope with the tiny car’s 332 lb-ft of torque.
All of these features are going to be in the soon-to-come CLA45 AMG, which will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show later this month. Until then all we have is the A45 AMG.
