2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Photo Gallery


(Cars.com)

High performance and luxury can be combined in a small package as the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG proves.

AMG engineers took the new entry-level subcompact luxury CLA-Class and turned it into a rocket that will sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, according to Mercedes. Power comes from a 355-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

The CLA45 AMG's exterior gets an array of aggressive styling tweaks like black wheels with massive red-painted AMG brake calipers, optional carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancements and a menacing-looking dual exhaust. Inside, the cabin gets occupants ready for the racetrack thanks to a carbon fiber and faux leather interior with red stitching, a flat-bottom steering wheel, a shifter assembly that came straight from the gull-wing SLS AMG and bolstered sport seats.
