It clearly seems to be the year of the AMGs. Within months of launching the GL 63 and ML 63 AMG, German luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz has launched the CLA 45 AMG in India at the price of Rs 68.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The CLA 45 AMG is the newest member of the AMG Performance Brand and was launched by Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India at Buddh International Circuit.     


The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is the seventh member of the performance brand’s India portfolio; distinguishes itself as India’s first ‘compact performance sedan’.


The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is an ideal combination of compact proportions and an AMG engine blended together for delivering sporty performance. The CLA 45 AMG is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder twin turbo mated to an AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed sports transmission. The engine produces 360 PS at 6,000 rpm and churns out 450 Nm of peak torque between 2,250 – 5,000 rpm.  The CLA 45 AMG can sprint from 0 to 100 kmph in 4.6 seconds and boasts of an electronically limited top speed of 270 kmph.


The CLA 45 AMG also lays claim of the most powerful four-cylinder series production engine in the world having won two international awards at the Engine of the Year Awards 2014 for the categories: “New engine 2014” and “1.8-litre to 2-litre”.


The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG sports flared bumpers with wide air dams and intakes, side-skirt and special badging - like the turbo on the side and AMG at the rear and on the wheels, and the AMG exhaust pipes.


Mercedes-Benz has packed the CLA 45 AMG with a slew of safety features. Standard-fit systems include drowsiness-detecting Attention Assist and radar-based Collision Prevention Assist that helps to boost braking from a speed of 4mph to avoid or reduce the severity of impacts. Optional safety systems include Distronic Plus, which complements Collision Prevention Assist and is engineered to provide autonomous braking at speeds of up to 124mph. The system also brakes in response to stationary vehicles at a speed of up to 19 mph and is able to prevent rear-end collisions at speeds of up to 12 mph.


Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “The launch of the CLA 45 AMG in India is a significant step forward towards the evolution of performance driving in the country. We are extremely delighted to introduce the first ever four-cylinder AMG in India and are confident that the CLA 45 AMG with its fascinatingly sporty design, scintillating driving experience impressive craftsmanship and individuality; will be a resounding success among our young customer groups. The CLA 45 AMG is a perfect embodiment of the AMG DNA and reflects the AMG brand pledge of ‘Driving Performance’. Boasting of the ‘most powerful four-cylinder series production engine in the world’ the CLA 45 AMG is an unmistakable result of Mercedes-AMG’s unsurpassable expertise in motorsports and engine development over four and half decades.”  


Kern further added, “The launch of CLA 45 AMG is inspired by the resounding success of our New Generation Compact cars in India. We have seen a rising demand among our growing young customer base for a stylish and high performance car which makes a strong personal style statement adding practicality of everyday use simultaneously. The CLA 45 AMG suits the requirement of these young customers like no other AMG in the portfolio. The CLA 45 AMG is the seventh AMG product available in the Indian market and signifies the growing penchant for the performance sedan segment in India.
