Power comes from a turbocharged 2.0l engine, delivering 360 hp and 450 Nm torque. Sales will begin in mid-March 2014, and a launch is planned by July 2014.
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The response to the Concept GLA 45 AMG during the world première at the Los Angeles International Auto Show has reaffirmed our decision to launch this new AMG model. Currently there is no segment growing faster than that of compact SUVs. For Mercedes-AMG it is therefore a logical step to make a dynamic statement in this segment with the GLA 45 AMG. Our new high-performance-SUV not only offers the world’s most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine, but also impressively low fuel consumption and emissions figures. Not least on account of the performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the GLA 45 AMG is a true AMG when it comes to driving dynamics”.
