    Here it is, the new 2013 Mercedes A-Class, pictures and video - AMG Sport package model watering down the AMG brand?

    Well the luxury hatchback market just heated up considerably. Audi just revealed their new A3 ahead of the public Geneva showing and Mercedes decided to do the same with their new A-Class. We think the A-Class has the better exterior design with great and aggressive body work but the A3 has the better interior. If you are wondering what those red accents are on the car that stick out like a sore thumb they are part of the AMG Sport package. We are disappointed to see Mercedes watering down the AMG name much in the same manner as BMW is doing with M.

    The AMG Sport package offers red trim on the AMG style front and rear aprons (isn't this a bit ricer for Mercedes?) as well as a sport tuned suspension. Additionally, the calipers are painted to match the trim and 18 inch wheels are offered.

    The vehicle is available in front and all wheel drive as well as both with manual and dual clutch transmissions. It is not certain if both transmissions will be available in the USA. The new 1.8 liter M271 turbocharged four cylinder is a certainty for the US market though. Check out the pictures and video below.

    If they are created an AMG package version for this it just makes me wonder why that means for the real AMG version or if it is still coming?

    It only resembles a GTI because it is a hatch.

    I like how Audi is doing it. They have the sport models with the S-badges. Then the high performance cars with the RS-badges.

    Makes sense.

    I suppose so but when a sport model just compete with a regular non-sport model from other companies doesn't it look bad? Like the S4 used to compete with the M3. Now it competes with the 335.

    Mercedes has made the new A-Class design alot sportier to attract a younger clientèle. Let's see if the sale figures will prove them right. Personnally I like this new design far better (does that mean I'm still young? Click here to enlarge ) but the front grille looks way oversized, like a giant nose. It makes the rest of the front elements appear tiny. The proportions just aren't right.

    "We’ve known for a while now that Mercedes-Benz was planning a high-performance AMG variant of its new entry-level model, the recently revealed third generation mercedes A class, and now we have a new batch of spy shots of a prototype for the Affalterbach tuner's first hot hatch.

    Previously spotted testing alongside a vw golf r, it’s obvious the benchmark AMG engineers are using to develop the car.

    The prototype you see here looks very similar to the new A Class, however, look closer and you'll notice a pair of square-shaped exhaust tips, uprated brakes and wheels, and what looks to be bigger intakes.

    In standard trim, the new A Class is available with a wide variety of gasoline and diesel engines, ranging from a 1.8-liter turbodiesel with 109 horsepower, to the 211-horsepower A250 with its turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder.

    The AMG variant is expected to feature a similar sized engine, however, it will be tuned to develop around 320 horsepower to really give the BMW 1-Series M Coupe and Audi RS3 a scare. Its potent powerplant is thought to be engineered by mercedes high performance powertrains, based at Brixworth, England, the same company responsible for Mercedes' Formula 1 engines. Accordingly, the AMG variant will likely pickup the “A25 AMG” title to denote its extra performance.

    Drive should be sent to all four wheels via a dual clutch gearbox and multi-plate clutch all-wheel drive system with rear biased torque distribution.

    The story doesn’t end there as AMG boss Ola Kaellenius has previously revealed that there will also be hottep up other versions of mercedes compacts, which are expected to land in the US along with this A Class AMG model next year.

    "Word has it that the United States and Canada most likely will not get this wee AMG, but we hear this same powertrain with strengthened seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will come to us in a four-door CLA 45 AMG version, and possibly also in a smaller crossover vehicle based on the modular chassis beneath the A- and B- Class ranges."
