The new Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG is powered by a 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged unit producing 355 HP and 450 Nm torque. It is mated to a 4MATIC all wheel drive system through a 7 speed dual clutch automatic transmission. It does a 0-100 kmph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 250 kmph.
Besides this, Mercedes Benz has an interesting lineup of models to display at the 2014 Auto Expo these will include the GLA Concept, M Guard SUV and Mercedes AMG Petronas F1.
Of these, we are not sure which will be making it on Indian roads first. It is also possible that Mercedes Benz India launches all of them in India, as they have already confirmed to launch 10 new cars this year. So, both CLA and CLA45 AMG, along with new GLA could make India debut later this year.
Compared to the CLA sedan, it’s AMG version possesses a sportier appeal with an aggressive stance. Twin blade grille is seen in matte grey combined with a larger front splitter, side air cooled ducts and large air intakes along with Turbo AMG badges on its front panels. You can watch Mercedes Benz cars at Hall No. 15 at the 2014 Auto Expo venue in Greater Noida between Feb 5-11 2014.
