A45 AMG and GL 500 introduced by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia

on October 10, 2013 at 5:59 pm

Malaysia today announced the of two new models which will add more excitement to the range in – the A45 AMG and the GL 500. Both are imported of course, so they’re not cheap the A45 AMG priced at under RM400,000 and the GL 500 for about RM913,000 (both without insurance).

The A45 AMG can be considered the of the spear’ in the company’s penetration of a new of customers with the latest It is the most powerful variant, to the development by AMG, the high-performance of Mercedes-Benz. In particular, it is equipped the AMG 2-litre turbocharged engine is claimed to be the most powerful 4-cylinder turbocharged engine in the It produces 450 Nm of torque between and 5000 rpm and with a maximum output of 360 bhp, it has a specific output of 181 bhp/litre – on par with the most powerful supercars.

AMG engine is assembled by one person who a plaque with his name on the cover. Riccardo Weber probably be pleased to know the he built is in a car sold in Malaysia

0 to 100 km/h can be done in a claimed 4.6 and the top speed is beyond 250 km/h but cannot find out how far beyond there is an electronic-limiter. Surprisingly, the consumption can be as good as 14.5 – assuming the owner can resist maximum performance all the time.

of the secrets to the high performance of the are the gravity-die sandcast all-aluminium weight-optimised crank assembly forged steel crankshaft and pistons with friction-optimised rings, NANOSLIDE cylinder technology (usually used in cars) and air-to-water intercooler.

The AMG exhaust system features pipe cross-sections and an automatically-controlled flap. This technology is used in the SLK 55 AMG. The flap is adjusted by map control according to the called up by the driver, load and engine speed.

Where performance once meant exhaust emissions would be to meet, today’s advanced make it possible for the most cars to meet the stringent and the A45 AMG engine is said to already with the second stage of the EU6 standards that do not go into until 2017.

Shifter for the AMG DCT transmission. Information on fuel lid indicates that RON98 is required but the engine will run on RON97 as the ECU will adjust the to suit the octane. However, the may not be 100% of what is advertised

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports in the A45 AMG has seven gears, three transmission modes, a double-declutching dependent on the transmission mode and START for optimum acceleration. strengths of the AMG dual clutch include spontaneous gearshifts interruption in tractive power, a control strategy based on the AMG functions, extremely smooth and gearshifts, and a high level of

Getting that much to the road necessitates a more drivetrain and the car gets a performance-oriented AMG all-wheel drive system as In developing this all-wheel system, the focus was firmly on and dynamic spirit. The power to the rear powertrain is provided by a power take-off unit which is fully integrated the 7-speed sports transmission. A propeller shaft transfers the from the engine to the rear In the interests of favourable weight an electro-hydraulically controlled multiple-disc is integrated with the rear differential. Power distribution is variable; in normal driving, the is mostly front-wheel drive in the of optimum efficiency but torque-split can be continuously up to a ratio of 50:50.

Typically for AMG, the Electronic Program is configured as 3-stage ESP ESP ON, SPORT Handling Mode and ESP each one being selectable by the There’s also ESP Curve Assist which is a more stability control system .

It without saying that the performance is provided only if the of the car is uprated properly. So the AMG engineers improved the capabilities of the suspension the 4-link rear axle exclusive for the variant. The AMG sports with specifically tuned units and larger anti-roll provides for high lateral and a reduced rolling tendency in double bends.

On both the and interior, the AMG touch is very There’s a ‘twin-blade’ radiator painted matt titanium and a front fascia with splitter in matt titanium along with large air The rear fascia has stylised air outlet openings, a diffuser and exhaust system with two chrome-plated tailpipe trims. On the of the roof is a wing spoiler, in black.

Inside, the sports are upholstered in ARTICO man-made microfibre with red contrasting and red seatbelts. The instrument panel has a carbonfibre look complementing the 5 air in black/red. The central colour incorporates the AMG main menu a RACETIMER.

The new flagship of the Mercedes-Benz SUV range was in April last year, four other SUV models together, account for a fifth of the global sales. The GL-class has been officially sold in before so it’s all new to this

Design-wise, it follows the traditional SUV with a more function-oriented that includes an upright grille. Though having a of 5120 mm and width of 2141 mm, it appear imposing for a 7-seater. An feature at the rear end is in the tail LED units which use fibre

The version imported has a 4663 cc BlueDIRECT V8 petrol engine produces 408 bhp with a massive 600 Nm of which is available from rpm. This gives the SUV a 0 to 100 capability of 5.9 seconds with a automatic transmission and a top speed to 250 km/h. Despite such a displacement, fuel consumption is to be 8.8 kms/litre which is said to be the fuel-efficient V8 petrol engine in its While engine technology has to improve fuel efficiency, the new has also undergone a major program’ and its lightweight construction has in no small way.

The 4MATIC all-wheel drive has 6 driving programs for optimising dynamics and handling safety in as well as off-road conditions. An a two-stage transfer case a low-range ratio, an inter-axle lock, 285 mm of ground clearance and AIRMATIC functionality gives the GL 500 the to ‘conquer’ virtually any kind of

SUVs are large and tall so handling dynamics are obviously from a passenger car’s. the GL 500 comes with a number of systems which provide a high degree of active One of the new model’s innovations and highlights is the Crosswind Assist, which the driver when there are crosswinds. It maintains a straight through targeted brake

Big SUVs have usually unable to offer ride levels that are high but for new generation, the engineers went all out to comfort levels befitting of a model. In particular, NVH (Noise, Harshness) has been reduced to is claimed to be on par with the S-Class. The for the high level of NVH comfort is by the very rigid body, an powertrain, the improved chassis, refinements and the intelligent use of new-style

The cabin also has an S-Class though with the functionality is expected for a SUV. Access to the row of seats (for two adults) is easy with the one-touch to flip the outboard seat of the row forward. Cargo capacity can be from 680 to 2,300 litres, on how the seating layout is configured.

The A45 AMG and GL 500 are not to be big sellers though the former certainly draw a fair of enthusiasts. But they do much to the Mercedes-Benz range in Malaysia diverse and appealing, which certainly enable the brand to its market share.
