2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45

 


Reasserting its leading position thanks to outstanding performance is the new Mercedes-AMG compact sports car, the CLA 45. The CLA 45 features the ultimate in driving dynamics and expressive design. The vehicle seamlessly continues the success story of Mercedes-AMG's sporty compact cars, while setting new standards.

The CLA 45 is powered by the newly developed M139 2.0-liter engine, the world's most powerful turbocharged four-cylinder manufactured for series production. With 382 hp, the CLA 45 boasts more power than its predecessor. Fast gearshifts measured in milliseconds and ideal power delivery are guaranteed by the new AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT-8G dual-clutch transmission with eight gears.

Active, fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive distributes the power to the rear axle on a wheel- selective basis using AMG TORQUE CONTROL – for top traction and the spectacular Drift mode. This is made possible by a new rear axle differential featuring two multidisc clutches – one for each rear wheel.

The new Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 is even more distinctive than its predecessors with an exterior that conveys sheer driving pleasure. For the first time, the compact class AMG models now also feature the AMG-specific radiator grille with a wide lower contour and twelve vertical louvers – as a clear indicator of AMG Performance family membership. At the same time, the pronounced "shark nose", the slim, deeply contoured headlamps and the flat, aerodynamically-enhanced hood with powerdomes visually lowers the front section to create the impression of dynamic forward thrust. The wider front fenders with flared wheel arches also accentuate the imposing presence. These create space for the wider front axle, and underline the athletic appearance.

The 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 will go on sale in the United States by the end of the year. To find out more about this upcoming vehicle, contact us today at Mercedes-Benz of Tampa.
