The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG has gone on display at the New York Auto Show 2013. The CLA is the must-have Mercedes-Benz of the moment and the 45 AMG variant simply adds an element of sporting charm. We sent a photographer to take a closer look!
The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is similar to the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG hatchback. This is most evident through the styling especially with the curves, the front, the difference comes in at the rear, they even share the same engine, a a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0 liter engine. The engine is based on the Daimler 2.0 liter turbocharged power plant developing a maximum output of 360hp and up to 450 Newton metres of torque. It uses the AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a rear differential.
