Mercedes-Benz has unveiled at the 2013 New York Auto Show the brand new CLA 45 AMG. The four door coupe comes with the same engine from the A 45 AMG. 

As you know we are talking about the 2.0 liter turbo four cylinder engine that can develop 355 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. According to German officials, the CLA 45 AMG can do the sprint from stand still to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. 

The ponies are sent to the ground via a seven speed dual clutch AMG SpeedShift DCT 7 and thanks to the all wheel drive system. The transmission has a so-called “Momentary M mode”, which enables the driver to activate manual mode “M” without having to remove a hand from the steering wheel, simply by pressing the up or down shift paddle once.
 
There’s also an “S” sport mode and a Controlled Efficiency mode “C” which favors fuel consumption over performance. The latter automatically activates the ECO start/stop function.

On the outside, the German model was dressed in special AMG clothes. We see a new front spoiler, special hood, new side skirts, revised air diffuser and new exhaust. On the inside, everything is just like in the A 45 AMG, with an identical dashboard, sport seats and an array of features available.

The CLA 45 AMG will go on sale in July 2013 in Germany, with market launch scheduled for September. Prices there start from €56,078 ($71,981), while in the US, the CLA 45 AMG will be priced from a much more competitive $47,450 (€37,067) with sales to start this spring.
