    A45 AMG..the hottest hatch ever!!

    Hardware is the same as the incoming Canadian CLA45 AMG


    Old review:
    http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...st-ride-review


    ----------------------------------------

    http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...ll-four-wheels


    The first of AMG’s new compact range, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, has finally been revealed, and with the reveal comes confirmation that the car’s new four-cylinder engine will be dishing out a staggering 360 horsepower from its 2.0 liters of displacement.

    The A45 AMG, which goes on sale in Europe soon after its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show next month, won’t make it to the U.S., but its potent powertrain will, arriving on these shores in a similar CLA45 AMG due at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

    Based on the latest version of the A Class hatchback, the A45 AMG adopts the Affalterbach tuner’s new four-cylinder engine, sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, and unique styling both inside and out.

    The engine is the real star of the show; it’s a turbocharged and direct-injected unit capable of delivering 360 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and is currently the most powerful production four-cylinder engine in the world.

    At the same time, the engine also boasts impressive efficiency, returning fuel economy in the 30-mpg range based on the European combined cycle.

    The engine runs a compression ratio of 8.6:1 and revs to 6,700 rpm. Peak torque is delivered from just 2,250 revs and stays there all the way to 5,000. Maximum boost pressure from the twin-scroll turbocharger is set at a relatively high 26 psi, which helps explain the high output.

    Power is routed to all four wheels via AMG’s own all-wheel-drive system. The setup is different to Mercedes’ 4MATIC system for compact cars in that it is lighter and evenly splits torque 50:50 between the front and rear wheels. In normal driving situations, full torque goes to the front wheels only, helping reduce fuel consumption.

    The variables influencing the power distribution ratio are vehicle speed, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, steering angle, speed difference between the individual wheels, selected gear and accelerator position.

    A two-part propeller shaft transfers the power from the engine to the rear axle. In the interests of favorable weight distribution, an electrohydraulically controlled multi-disc clutch is integrated with the rear axle differential. The multi-disc clutch immediately detects slip at the front axle, at which point a hydraulic pump instantaneously presses the discs together and channels the engine torque to the rear wheels as necessary. All this takes place virtually without the driver noticing, according to AMG.

    The gearbox is an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT, a seven-speed dual-clutch unit with an AMG gear selector mounted in the center console and paddle shifters. The gearbox has multiple modes as well as a launch control system.

    The end result of all this tech is a 0-62 mph time of just 4.6 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 mph.

    2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

    2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG
    Like every AMG vehicle, the new A45 AMG also incorporates sophisticated chassis technology. For enhanced driving dynamics, the suspension is much stiffer than on the regular A Class and is unique at the rear.

    There is also specifically tuned spring and damper settings, larger stabilizer bars, and speed-sensitive electronic steering. The stock wheels are 18-inch light alloys, which house ventilated and perforated discs measuring up to 13.7 inches in diameter.

    Stepping inside, the first thing you’ll notice is the AMG gear knob, which is similar to the unit fitted on other AMG models including the SLS AMG supercar. Sports seats are standard and are joined by a carbon fiber-look for the dash, an AMG instrument panel and the AMG DRIVE UNIT, which is used to adjust all the individual performance settings.

    Numerous options are also available, including an aerodynamics package, carbon fiber package, 19-inch alloy wheels, and performance upgrades to the exhaust, suspension and brakes.

    With the A45 AMG now revealed, we can look forward to the reveal of the CLA45 AMG shortly and even a GLA45 AMG further down the track.


    "The A45 AMG is the most powerful series production car powered by a 2.0-liter engine. Its specific power output is roughly 173 hp per liter, topping even the Porsche 911 GT2 RS (172.2 hp per liter). That’s a record for roadgoing cars, according to Moers."

    In normal driving situations, full torque goes to the front wheels only
    ???? At 332 lb-ft, what's a normal driving situation. This thing should be full time AWD.

    Impressive numbers and technology. Not crazy about the styling and two questions remain, how will it drive and how much will it cost? Pricing in the UK will start at 36,000 British pounds with no options ticked off. MB is aiming this car at 30-40 year olds, how many buyers in this age group will have this kind of money available?

    Probably a better buy in a few years as a lease return.

    driving on the highway/driving slowly in streets?

    Theres so many sensors on a car these days, they can provide your pulse and blood sugar level on the console.

    A C63 coupe in the UK starts at 58,000 british pounds which means thew A45 is 22 000 pounds less (35 000cdn$ less)

    A C63 coupe in Canada starts at 67,000 canadian dollars minus 35 000$ canadia = 32 000$ but we all know it wont be that cheap. Plus it will not be available here.

    I figure the CLA45 AMG will be around 50 000$ in Canada. A real STI/EVO/Golf R competitor.

    Ugh 26 PSI stock?! WTF?! Most cars run stock at around 10 PSI which means not too much stress on internals and possibility to tune the car for more power. With 26 PSI stock, I don't want to own that car after warranty. The lag must also be horrible.

    Wont be too laggy..but certainly laggier than your car.

    I don't think the Golf R is a competitor to this new Merc. We will need to wait for the MKVII Golf R with the new MQB platform to see the Golf R push upwards of 300+ HP (VW is supposedly planing a very special MKVII Golf R). By the way Audi also announced their new S3 which is a snoozer at best...

    Sounds Very nice.
    I don't understand how people think that tighter gun regulation will make for less criminals with guns.
    Criminals do not get their guns from gun stores.

    Usually the Golf R and S3 have the same powertrain.

    I think that S3 is pretty damn hot.

    The real test for this A45 AMG will be the BMW M135i which is currently the best hatch in the market. I will be impressed and will respect MB more if they manage to match or beat the M135i.

    Quite frankly, it looks like the new Impreza.

    But knowing I'm a sucker for hot hatches, it's too bad this won't make it here.
