Mercedes-Benz has cooked up a snack-sized container of alphabet soup: the 2015 GLA45 AMG. Its hand-built, direct-injected and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine serves up 355 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque.  Those figures make it “the most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine in the world.”  AMG’s 4MATIC all-wheel-drive and SPEEDSHIFT DCT dual-clutch seven-speed transmission digest that […]
