Mercedes-Benz UK has revealed the A45 AMG has a starting price of 37,845 pounds. Opt for the AMG Aerodynamics package and the price tag increases by 1,530 pounds. For this money you will be getting an AMG rear aerofoil and a larger front splitter.
There’s also the AMG Performance Exhaust which will set you back another 510 pounds and give you in return four chrome tailpipes. Under the bonnet is a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo mill producing 360 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque. Power is transferred to the wheels through a 7-speed Speedshift DCT gearbox and the proprietary 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
Thanks to this configuration, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG needs 4.6 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and it will keep on accelerating until it hits a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) which has been electronically limited. The German automaker says the hot hatchback can return 34 mpg US (40.9 mpg UK or 6.9 liters / 100 km).
