Mercedes-AMG A 45 S & CLA 45 S
Dubai, UAE. Outstanding performance, ultimate driving dynamics, expressive design ‑ the new Mercedes-AMG compact CLA 45 S 4MATIC+/ A 45 S 4MATIC+ sports cars.
Available in two output and torque variants, the completely newly developed 2.0-litre engine is the world's most powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine in manufactured for series production.
The S-variant with 310 kW (421 hp) has fast gearshifts measured in milliseconds, are guaranteed by the new AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT-8G dual-clutch transmission with eight gears.
For the first time, the compact class now also features the AMG-specific radiator grille with a wider lower contour and twelve vertical louvres.
Mercedes-AMG has bettered the output of the preceding engine by 30 kW(40 hp). Maximum torque has also increased from 475 to up to 500 newton metres. With an output per litre of up to 155 kW (211 hp), the new Mercedes-AMG high-performance turbo engine even ranks ahead of many well-known super-sports car engines. The new, highly efficient powerpack is produced on an innovative production line in Affalterbach, on the "One Man, One Engine" principle.
On the multimedia display, when a drive program is selected, the new AMG DYNAMICS symbol is displayed together with the corresponding additional information.
- "Basic" is assigned to the "Slippery" and "Comfort" drive programs. In this case the compact sportscars exhibit very stable handling with a high level of yaw damping.
- "Advanced" is activated in the "Sport" program. The 45 models remain neutrally balanced. The lower yaw damping, lower steering angle requirement and enhanced agility support dynamic manoeuvres such as driving on winding country roads.
- "Pro" (short for "Professional") belongs to the "Sport+" program. In "Pro" the driver receives even more assistance for dynamic driving manoeuvres while agility and feedback from the road when cornering are further enhanced.
- "Master" is linked to the "RACE" driving. "Master" mode is aimed at drivers who want to experience dynamism and the driving enjoyment on closed-off circuits. "Master" offers a vehicle balance with slight oversteer, a low steering angle requirement and more agile steering.
In this way, "Master" ensures maximum agility and fully exploits the dynamic potential. To activate "Master" mode, the driver must use the separate button in the centre console to switch the ESP® to ESP® SPORT Handling Mode or ESP® OFF.
