One of the hottest hot hatchbacks has become even hotter!
The Mercedes-AMG A45S 4MATIC+ Plus might have the same “45” as its predecessor which was the first generation of the model, but it now packs even more performance, more luxury, more functionality, and just about more of everything. The most powerful of the A-Class AMG range, the A45S’ strikingly sporty design makes it instantly distinguishable from the Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC and the AMG Line variants. The distinctive front apron, the AMG-specific grille trim and the power domes on the bonnet make the Mercedes-AMG A45S a real standout. Add in the wider front wings, gorgeous 19-inch cross-spoke forged wheels and red-painted brake callipers and the A45S impressively hints of the abundance of driving enjoyment on offer. Propelled by the world’s most powerful 4-cylinder turbocharged engine in series production today, the 2-litre unit churns out 421 hp and 500 Nm! Mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 8G dual-clutch transmission with RACE START function and motorsport-type gear changes, the combo gives the A45S tremendous acceleration – 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.9 seconds.
Add the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system with AMG TORQUE CONTROL which allows its two separate clutches at the rear axle to allow fully variable torque distribution to each of the rear wheels and motorsport-like handling and grip is available when needed. Inside the A45S, the AMG cockpit with MBUX multimedia system features three display designs including Supersport mode with the large tachometer takes centre stage. Complementing the cockpit is the AMG Performance steering wheel. Another drool-worthy item is the distinctive AMG centre console with integral control switches for manual transmission mode, 3-stage ESP and AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension. Our Mercedes-AMG A45S 4MATIC+ PLUS also comes with two equipment packages – AMG Night Package and AMG Aerodynamics Package.
