Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC
Key facts
tech-data

  • The new generation A-Class is topped by an even more dynamic Mercedes-AMG A 45 model. As well as ushering the company’s new naming convention for AMG models, the new generation Mercedes-AMG A 45 is powered by an uprated 1,991 cc turbocharged petrol engine that now develops 381 hp at 6,000 rpm and 475 Nm of toque between 2,250 – 5,000 rpm.
  • This makes the all-wheel drive Mercedes-AMG A 45 the world's most powerful compact sports model.
  • The 21 hp and 25 Nm power hike is achieved by a new valve assembly and more sophisticated fuel injection timing. The maximum boost pressure of 1.8 bar remains the same.
  • The Mercedes-AMG A 45 now powers its way to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds – 0.4 seconds quicker than before – and on to an electronically-limited 155 mph top speed.
  • With a specific output of 191 hp per litre, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine offers the highest specific output of any production engine in the world. Despite this, combined average fuel economy is unchanged at 40.9 mpg, while its CO2 emission figure increases by just 1 g/km to 162 g/km.
  • Hand-assembled by a single AMG engineer, the four-cylinder engine is closely linked to the mighty 462 hp 3,982 cc biturbo V8 engine that powers the new Mercedes-AMG GT.
  • The increase in performance is matched by the enhanced AMG Speedshift DCT 7-speed sport transmission, which now features shorter ratios for third to seventh gears, as well as revised software for even quicker shift-times.
  • The Mercedes-AMG A 45 carries over its AMG-engineered suspension, which features strengthened steering knuckles, and uprated anti-roll bars, springs and dampers. The rear axle of the car is unique, featuring new rear strut bearings subframe to improve rigidity and responses.
  • The bespoke electromechanical steering uses a constant rack ratio of 14.5:1 with the electric motor reduced in size to aid packaging. The uprated AMG braking system, which measures 350 mm at the front and 330 mm at the rear, is also adopted from the outgoing model.
  • The Mercedes-AMG A 45’s intelligent all-wheel drive system uses a lightweight 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, controlled by an electrohydraulically operated multi-disc clutch, integrated into the rear axle differential for ideal weight distribution. The split is up to 50:50, defaulting to front-wheel-drive when all-wheel drive is not required.
  • Borrowing technology from the Mercedes-AMG GT, the new Dynamic Select system offers four driving modes - Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Race – allowing the driver to choose the best ride and handling characteristics according to road and track conditions.
  • Comfort mode delivers softer gearshifts, a compliant ride, economy-boosting ‘sailing’ and a low-key exhaust note. Sport mode unleashes the Mercedes-AMG A 45’s dynamic side with quicker engine and transmission responses, firmer suspension and a fruitier soundtrack.
  • Sport+ takes this a step further with quicker shift times, ultra-quick throttle responses, uprated ride quality and throttle blips on down-changes. The Race mode is optimised for the ultimate in track performance.
  • With its bold new front and rear lights, bespoke front and rear bumpers and new alloy wheel designs, the Mercedes-AMG A 45 makes a bold visual statement that reflects its dynamic intent.
  • The cabin also benefits from a number of infotainment enhancements: the advanced new telematics now features Mercedes connect me, accessed through a larger eight-inch central screen.
  • Further unique features include AMG Performance Seats, carbon-look textured weave finish for the dashboard, illuminated door sill AMG logos, AMG Drive Unit gear selector, AMG dials and part-suede AMG steering wheel.
  • The Mercedes-AMG A 45 has set the safety standard in the compact performance car sector, and the refreshed model continues that tradition with the standard-fit Collision Prevention Assist Plus Now featuring autonomous partial braking, and the drowsiness detection system Attention Assist, also standard, now enhanced with an extended 37 – 124 mph speed range and a five-stage bar display that visualises the driver's current attention level.
  • These upgraded systems joined by the following standard safety features: seven airbags; Active Bonnet; AMG-tuned Acceleration Skid Control and Electronic Stability Programme; Brake Assist and latest generation ABS anti-lock braking system. Optional safety features include Pre-Safe®, Distronic Plus, Lane-Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist and Intelligent Light System.
  • With a length x width x height of 4,292 x 2,022 x 1,433 mm, 341 – 1,157 litres of cargo space and an extended wheelbase of 2,699 mm, the Mercedes-AMG A 45 marries extraordinary performance with everyday practicality.
