« Back Mercedes AMG CLA45S
These days everything seems to be getting bigger and cars like the Mercedes C63S and BMW M3 are pretty big cars now. So this is where Mercedes has come in with what may well be the ultimate everyday performance car – the CLA45S Coupe (not really a coupe, more a stylish saloon, but that's how Merc describes it). Okay, it isn’t as practical as the Shooting Brake model, but we’d happily sacrifice a little boot space when it looks this good.
As per the other ‘45S models under the bonnet sits an incredible 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which produces a staggering 415bhp and 500Nm of torque. That’s enough to propel this sleek coupe/saloon to 62mph in just 4.0 seconds which is enough to worry a lot of supercars. Visually the CLA45S gets the AMG Panamericana grille for a lot more aggression at the front, while the front bumper gains huge intakes and grilles.
The CLA45-S gets all the options you could want including one of the best interiors available at any price. At the rear, the quad exhaust pipes really show that this small coupe/saloon means business and that’s before anyone has heard the vicious bark they emit. We really would love one of these!
