The least expensive AMG (in the U.S.) has broken cover before its debut at the New York Auto Show.
Meet the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and think of it as the A45 AMG in a sedan form. Under the skin is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder packing a 355 horsepower mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox Mercedes’ latest 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
Outside, the CLA45 gets the typical AMG treatment; large air scoops on the front, black front lip kit, AMG wheels, rear diffuser, and a set of unique exhaust pipes.
We'll have more information and pictures when the CLA45 AMG makes it debut next week.
