Our good friends in Germany had a chance to get behind the wheel of the CLA45 AMG ahead of its Detroit debut early next year.
As we’ve previously reported, the four-door coupe has been heavily influenced by the Concept Style Coupe and has a similar sleek styling. The AMG variant distinguishes itself from the base model with its own unique bumpers, an updated exhaust system and traditional five-spoke alloy wheels.
The engines will carryover from the A-Class, however the CLA 45 AMG will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 354 HP (260 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque that will be connected to a 7G-DCT transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system with a “Torque on Demand” rear axle. The CLA 250 will feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 211 HP (155 kW) and will be available with all-wheel drive.
