The first promo video for the Mercedes A45 AMG has been released, and even though it shows the car on the race track, it doesn’t really judge its performance. This is a little family hatchback that has 360 horsepower, 450 NM of torque, and a sport four-wheel-drive system. So while it is obviously very fast in the straight line, cornering might not be its forte.
To find that out we have to wait for real world test drives. For now you can enjoy the aesthetics of the car in this clip:
“The A45 AMG will enable Mercedes-AMG to appeal to new customers and tap new markets,” observes Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “We are adding an extremely attractive model with exceptional performance to our range of unique high-performance automobiles.”
“With the new A45 AMG we have well and truly achieved our aim of developing the most dynamic, powerful and efficient four-cylinder series production car,” comments Tobias Moers, Head of Overall Vehicle Development and Board Member of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “With its impressive high-tech package and the performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the A45 AMG is a thoroughbred AMG through and through.”
