A change has been noticed in the Mercedes-Benz India’s website. The website has a new page for the CLA 45 AMG, the next AMG launch in India. The model C 63 AMG no longer exists on the website rather the only two models in the section of Saloon exist and that are: E 63 and CLA 45.
The model CLA 45 made its debut at last year’s New York Auto Show and also at the Auto Expo held in India this year. The Mercedes has still not launched the regular CLA class in India; the performance-oriented CLA 45 will be most probably getting launched in the month of July or August.
What’s unique about CLA 45 AMG?
It is the power that makes this model unique. The power for the CLA 45 comes from a 2.0 litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine capable of producing 355 hp and 450 Nm of torque and this makes it the world’s most powerful series production four-cylinder engine. According to the company Mercedes the model can go for 0-100 Km/h in 4.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 250 km/h.
The model CLA 45 has 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission and Merc’s 4MATIC system that send power to all wheels. The rest of the features include AMG sports steering wheel and gearlever, carbon-trimmed interior, three-stage ESP with Curve Dynamic Assist, Apple iPhone supported display with TFT technology and aerodynamic bumpers with carbon-fiber trims. The important safety features include nine airbags, Adaptive Brake with the HOLD function as well as ATTENTION ASSIST are fitted as standard.
The front part of the sedan at somewhere resembles with the CLS. The roofline that is designed n coupe style also enhances the overall outer semblance of the vehicle.
The interior of the car is also superb. The seat both at the front and rear are unique. The seat belts are equally striking as it comes in colour red and they are large.
