Mercedes-AMG is known for driving performance and the new CLA 45 4MATIC+ Coupé and Shooting Brake are no exceptions. The strength of the AMG engine combines with sleek design and power technology for a spectacular drive.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine is more powerful than ever, with an output of 421 hp (310 kW) and has an acceleration 0-62 mph in 4.0 seconds. Mercedes-AMG has bettered the output of the preceding engine by 40hp (30 kW). Maximum torque has also increased from 475 to up to 500 newton metres. The new, highly efficient engine is produced in Affalterbach, on the “One Man, One Engine” principle.
Dynamic Drive Technology
The new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive offers selective power distribution to the wheels on the rear axle via AMG TORQUE CONTROL. In addition, spectacular Drift mode provides for even greater driving enjoyment. This is made possible by a newly developed rear axle differential. The RACE-START function allows maximum acceleration from stationary, a highly emotional experience.
The 8-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 8G dual-clutch transmission likewise contributes to the agile and dynamic character. Depending on the selected AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving mode, the driver receives a specific drive configuration with different accelerator and gearshift characteristics.
The exterior of the new CLA 45 also packs plenty of emotional appeal. The long bonnet with coupé-style window line, the muscular shoulders over the wheel arches and the low rear clearly reveal the vehicle’s sports car genes. The AMG-specific radiator grille with the vertical slats unmistakably identifies the CLA 45 Coupé and Shooting Brake as members of the AMG Performance family.
As well as the combination of sporty performance and stylish interior, the CLA 45 is practical too. The Shooting Brake is significantly wider than in the previous model at 505 litres and a boot opening of 871 millimetres.
