The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class 45 AMG is the four-door sedan variation of the record-holding A45 AMG. The CLA 45 features the same turbocharged engine as its smaller A-Class brother, which at the time boasted the highest specific output per liter for a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine. Famed for its powerful engine, this CLA 45 also incorporates AWD thanks to Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic system. This makes the A45 one of the most exciting small sedans to feature on American roads, with blistering power and all-around handling agility. Highly specified, this 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG offers many factory options, combined with further specialist tuning to eke out even more power from this potent small sports sedan.
The exterior of this Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 features AMG’s styling and aerodynamics packages. It also features the AMG Exterior Night Package which treats selected areas to a gloss black finish. Painted in Night Black, this CLA-Class also features 19-inch AMG alloy wheels and a panoramic sliding sunroof. The interior is finished in a combination of black and anthracite. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a custom-molded 10” subwoofer in the trunk. Red seatbelts add a dash of contrast to the interior, while the memory package ensures that multiple drivers can store their preferred settings.
The 2-liter 4-cylinder engine of the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45 puts out an earth-moving 375hp as standard. This translates to a 0-60mph time of just 4.1 seconds. However, the performance of this particular CLA 45 has been further enhanced with the addition of an Alpha Performance intercooler and AM SMB6000 turbo. The car also features an Alpha A45 high-pressure fuel pump, Milltek Catback Performance Exhaust and Down Pipe, along with a stage 3 tune.
