Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG review

In the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG should be the same to drive as the rabid and excellent Mercedes A45 AMG. despite its sweeping new junior CLS the CLA is actually identical to the A45 AMG beneath the


We liked the CLA45 AMG a but it doesn’t feel as sharp as the A45 AMG

Thus, and despite it weighing a 30kg more than the A45 Mercedes even makes the performance claims for its two new four-wheel-drive, AMGs.

The CLA45, just like the will hit 62mph from in a claimed 4.6sec thanks in to its ‘race start’ launch system, and it’ll reach the 155mph limited top speed, hit 100mph in approximately 11.0sec en making a delicious noise in the – particularly if you go for the optional AMG Performance

So although a dinky little coupé may not sound like the of car that would normally Mercedes’ most prized of times are a-changing, even at And in the process, the raw performance of the cars is not one bit.

And when you look at what the AMG offers, at least on paper, hard not to be impressed by the numbers it – except for one, which come to in a moment. The headline are as follows: 355bhp, 331lb ft, in 4.6sec, 161g/km of CO2 and 40.9mpg on the cycle. That is an extraordinary of statistics by any reckoning, and pace you can feel on the road thanks to its four-wheel-drive chassis. On wet UK roads in we doubt there are many out there that could up with it.

When you then dial in the effects of a cabin that is well made and surprisingly front and rear, plus a boot and a level of on-road that’s unprecedented from a four-door coupé, it’s not to see why the CLA so impressed those who drove it at its

Yet there are two factors that against it, one of which is rather important than the other. The is the slightly odd realisation that it drive as crisply as the hatchback on it’s based.

The only difference between the according to AMG’s amiable boss Tobias Moers, are the settings, the CLA’s being softer in both bump and to make it feel that bit more chilled than the on the move. Which is fair in theory, even if the reality to be 10 per cent less zing much everywhere.

The second is the price. The CLA45 AMG costs than £40,000 in base Throw a few options at it, in other and maybe go for the smarter-looking 19-inch that were fitted to test cars, and you will be at £50k-plus. For a Mercedes A-class.

Admittedly the CLA45 AMG neither goes nor drives like average A-cass, but in the end that high price could be its undoing. That, plus its oddball status as the world’s four-cylinder coupé that so happens to have four

Still, that price has not put off buyers, quickly selling out of its right-hand-drive production run (most being well-specced, often in of £50,000, at that) and resulting in a wait for those who want to a car that could go on to change the way we about our more desirable of transport at a stroke if it maintains its momentum.
