New video, pictures, and specs offering more details of the upcoming 2013/2014 4Matic all wheel drive CLA45 AMG with a 2.0 liter turbocharged motor
Here is the final round of spyphotos showing the CLA45 AMG testing before the official debut of the CLA-Class at the Detroit Auto Show in January. The CLA45 AMG itself will make its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show later in the year. The engine will be the M133 turbocharged and direct injected 2.0 liter four-cylinder with an output of 354 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque thanks to 26 psi of boost from its turbo.
This is shaping up to be a very exciting entry-level AMG model. The styling gives it an appearance of a mini-CLS. Hopefully Mercedes will be able to keep the weight down significantly. With all wheel drive, relatively low weight compared to the other AMG models, and a dual clutch transmission being fed a good amount of power from a turbo powerplant Mercedes-Benz will likely have a big hit on their hands.
