The guys at Auto Express recently brought these two siblings together for a knock-down, drag-out fight on both the track and the open road. They came away pretty impressed with the 2.0-liter, 355-horsepower turbo four banger. But which car did the prefer? Watch the video after the jump to find out! Via Autoblog
For this week’s AMG Monday Morning Wake-Up Call, we’re taking you down under for a drag race pitting the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG against the HSV (Holden Special Vehicles) Gen-F GTS. Under the hood, the Mercedes is equipped with the most powerful production four-cylinder engine in the world. The HSV GTS is the most powerful car […]
Even if the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG had actually raced and beat downhill skateboarder Decio Lourenco down the Franschhoek Pass in South Africa, I wouldn’t care … I’d still consider the downhill skateboarder the winner because downhill skateboarders have molybdenum-plated titanium balls. Just skateboarding down a steep driveway scares the hell out of me. I’m not […]
Let’s dream for a moment, shall we? Let’s imagine the United States was lucky enough to have both the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG and the A45 AMG. Imagine having to decide between the two. Heaven forbid those first-world problems, but which car would you choose? You may like the swoopy four-door-coupe silhouette of the CLA […]

There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of sibling rivalry, right? Mercedes’ A45 AMG is the latest addition to AMG’s stable. It’s also the first major departure from AMG’s tried-and-true method of stuffing huge V8s into everything. The CLS on the other hand, is a battle ship. It’s packing over 500 horsepower and probably weighs […]
The AMG division of Mercedes-Benz released a video that explained the main qualities of the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.
When people talk about a German car that offers 350HP and goes from 0 to 100 km/h within 4.6 seconds, they normally refer to a Porsche 911. However, Mercedes aims to change this concept with its A45 AMG. The vehicle is probably the fastest compact hatchback in the market today.
Small-sized Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles that will compete with the BMW’s MINI brand are reportedly being planned by Daimler. However, no sources were cited in connection to this future plan of the German automobile manufacturer. The new models of Mercedes-Benz will be promoted in a different market segment from the Smart City Car. The technology used […]
If you’d like a third-generation Mercedes-Benz A250, but you feel like it doesn’t quite pack the punch you require, you might want to check out German tuner Vath’s take. It makes some performance tweaks to get the car to 245 horsepower, which should be more than enough for those craving for some more out of the A-Class.
This tuned model is called the V25, and there’s quite a considerable package given to the car. For starters, the 2.0-liter engine has been tuned, and aside from the HP boost, it also gets to 288 pound-feet of torque. The numbers are up from 211 horsepower and 258 pound-feet on the stock A250.
Seen in lightly-camouflaged guise late last year, the CLA 45 AMG has finally been revealed officially by Mercedes-Benz. As revealed by the cutaway, we can see a transverse-mounted four with a turbo. Elsewhere on the net, rumors say that this little jewel will displace 2 liters and have an output in the region of 360 hp. We can also see the all-wheel drive layout. A 7-speed dual-clutch transmission should be a reality, with Mercedes’ Race Start function as a feature.
