Just a few days after the eagerly awaited Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG was released, the official promo for the car has been released thanks to Mercedes-AMG. For those that didn’t know, the new GLA 45 AMG will have its public debut at next week’s Detroit Motor Show 2014.
The GLA 45 AMG does not fail to impress thanks to its tiny AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine, that delivers a more than adequate 360hp and 331 lb-ft of torque transferred to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system via a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT transmission. Consequently, it will sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
Despite such ferocious performance, it will even sip just 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres of fuel. Mercedes-Benz says the GLA 45 AMG is the third vehicle with four-cylinder turbo engine to appeal to a young target group, in addition to the A 45 and CLA 45 AMGs.
The options list, as with all Mercedes cars, is extensive and carbon fiber trim not only for the interior are available including the mirror housings. What we are most intrigued about is the optional Aerodynamics package that consists of a larger front splitter, new front canards on the bumper, rear spoiler and ‘Night package’. We are sure this will make the car look even more aggressive than it already looks!
