Mercedes Benz ready to Showcase the CLA 45 AMG in New York
|   Friday, March 29, 2013
Mercedes Benz is ready to showcase the next generation model of the CLA 45 AMG and the first images of the vehicle have been leaked out over the internet. The CLA 45 AMG is expected to be showcased at the New York Motor Show later this month and the images reveal that the CLA 45 AMG will be roughly based on the general ergonomics of the A45 AMG which was showcased at Geneva earlier this month.

The CLA 45 AMG will feature a powerful four cylinder, 2.
liter twin turbo charged engine displacing 332 ft lb of torque and 355 BHP. The vehicle will feature an all wheel drive platform with a dual clutch automatic seven speed gear box. Although the CLA 45 AMG is the big talk in the market at the moment, the experts believe that this vehicle will not be as popular as the A45 AMG.

One possible reason for the claim is that both vehicles are based on a similar platform while sporting similar technology and functionality. However, the CLA 45 AMG features a $100,000 plus price tag and this is set to be a major deterrent. The CLA 45 AMG might be a much celebrated vehicle but it is not the best car manufactured from German technology and as a result its popularity is set to falter.

Mercedes Benz is aware of the proceedings and hence they plan on launching the CLA 45 AMG post the A45 AMG. However, decisions regarding the vehicle have not been made as of yet and hence there is still time before official reports come in. However, this has not stopped fans from loving the CLA 45 AMG and the spy images have done their part in maintaining the hype in the market.

The CLA 45 AMG is a completely tunable, performance based luxury coupe and this is what enhances the overall appeal of the ride. Customers want performance and comfort in a ride apart from fuel efficiency and low CO2 emission which helps save certain amounts in tax. The exterior look of the CLA 45 AMG is that of a compact coupe and this is what appeals to the buyers.

Mercedes Benz is considering a new hatchback based on the underpinnings of the A Class and this model could be fairly popular on the European shores. The A 45 AMG on the other hand sports a price tag below $50,000 while the performance figures are thoroughly satisfying. This vehicle is expected to reach 0 – 60 MPH in 4.6 seconds while engine upgrades are a possibility.

AMG has installed its advanced aerodynamic kit on both the CLA 45 AMG and the A 45 AMG and this makes the vehicles quite similar in the way they look and the use of carbon fiber and aluminum gives the vehicle an enhanced look as well as decrease the overall weight of the vehicle. The brakes have been enhanced too and standard Brembo braking kits are to be used on both models. This lends the vehicles the sporting touch.
