The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG
An AWD hot hatchback that will win your heart
It seems that there are so many sports cars coming onto the market that we as individuals are having to turn to websites (such as this) just to keep up. Trust me when I say that I love it. The reason being is that when oil prices ran rampant in 07-08 I was fully expecting a drop off in performance models of all sizes. Today we see that the year of the driver is about to be upon us as manufacturers all over the world are focusing on a few performance models in their lineup. So we have much to look forward too. By the looks of it the Mercedes A45 AMG will certainly be a pick for fast-ass-hatch.
Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Specs
Mercedes has one hell of a performance team at AMG that can bring many smiles to us boys and girl. The AMG performance division will be massaging some pony power from a turbo 2.0L that will be connected to either a 6-speed manual or dual clutch 7-speed auto. Then power is placed to an AWD 4matic system in order to launch this car. What is interesting is that speculations for hp from this 2.0l are hitting numbers like 329hp. If this is the case then expect a very low 5 sec 0-60 and a 13 sec ¼ mile.
Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Price
This car could simply be the vehicle for individuals that couldn’t get their hands on a BMW 1M. The price for this car will probably start in the high $30’s if not low $40’s because it’s Mercedes Benz and AMG and that equals expensive. If it is too expensive then get the VW Golf-R that starts at 33k or especially the WRX STI. But look for some impressive numbers to be had if MB AMG sticks to their guns and delivers some potent power from an A-Class 2.0L.
