Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG Special Series

What’s the news?

Mercedes-Benz has that the GLA 45 AMG will go into — just months a ‘concept’ version was shown at the LA Auto Show. Not that complaining; a 360hp crossover can bloody the nose of the Audi RS Q3 and life uncomfortable for the forthcoming Macan Turbo is very news in our book.

Because LA concept was so close to this production version, the GLA 45 AMG is a familiar Shorn of the racing livery of the car, the GLA 45 is a solid-looking little the ‘slightly-chunkier-A-class’ appearance working when paired with the elegant alloys and rectangular exhausts (they’re only behind, if you look closely) are AMG signatures. Oh, and the GLA gets an AMG first the discreet, offset badging in its grille louvres that it out instantly as an Affalterbach product, that will be carried to all future models.

If you’ve been in either the A 45 or CLA 45 it’ll be familiar as long as you the elevated driving position. a pair of excellent bucket in the front, with a three-spoke, sports steering wheel paddle shift for the driver and there’s red stitching across seats and wheel, for a sporty AMG adds in its Drive Unit and including Racetimer, which promise performance-orientated visuals for all the controls of the GLA.


This is where the nuggets are to be found. The GLA carries the hand-built (yes, really) turbocharged four-cylinder petrol found in the aforementioned A 45 and CLA 45 AMG models, makes 360hp at 6,000rpm and it up with 450Nm between and 5,000rpm. With a specific of 181hp-per-litre, it’s the most four-pot in current series and will punch the GLA from to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds, on to the now-commonplace 250km/h limiter. But on top of its power, the 2.0-litre throws in BlueDirect eco credentials as well EU6 compliance, a quoted combined of 37.6mpg and CO 2 emissions of 175g/km. also a standard-fit sports system, which uses an flap in the rear silencer to both refined cruising and madcap exhaust blare pressing on, while a set of performance will be an option.

The twin-scroll turbo engine which boosts to a mighty 1.8 bar is coupled up to Merc’s Speedshift DCT automatic transmission, which has shift modes and also a control function called Start. So confident of this is AMG that it references no less a car the SLS AMG in the blurb, claiming the shift of the GLA’s system can match up to the GT’s.

Putting all this to the tarmac is the AMG all-wheel drive system. leaves the GLA in front-wheel drive normal conditions for the purposes of but it can shove 50 per cent of the torque to the rear axle when There’s also a three-stage ESP control system and Curve Assist too — an understeer-quelling that acts in lieu of a differential, braking the inside wheel to create extra yaw and provide the GLA 45 with sharper

MacPherson struts at the front and a four-link rear axle up with AMG springs and dampers, anti-roll bars and a rear bolted directly to the body, all of should hopefully bestow dynamics upon the GLA.

Anything else?

The GLA 45 AMG is aimed at a target audience than the traditional products of both and AMG, and the company decided to go with the car following positive to the concept at LA. The result is that the GLA is the AMG SUV you can purchase, joining the ML 63, GL 63, G 63 and G 65 variants. So, if you a 4×4 that can go bonkers your nearest AMG showroom has to be first port of call.

And finally, the car will get its debut on 13 at the Detroit NAIAS motor but if you can’t wait until there’s an interactive ‘web where you can experience the GLA 45 AMG online. Go to for more info.
