3.9 secs / 421ps / 500nm / 2L 4cyl turbo / 8 speed DCT / 4WD / 270kmh / A45S Edition 1 RM459,888 / CLA45S (4.0 secs) RM448,888
AMG’s newest 4 pot 4WD rockets arrive Malaysia in 3 distinct flavours. At the very top, pushing way over 400hp are the ludicrous AMG A45S hatch and CLA45S 4dr coupe with their savage panamericana grille, a new engine and 8 speed dct box, Followed by the lite-version 300hp AMG A35 hatch.
New 4 cylinder 45
Revamped and reversed, the new M139 2L twin scroll turbo is an extensively revised version of the previous 360hp engine, rotated 180 degrees, exhaust facing firewall, then fortified to comfortably surpass the 400hp bracket right out of the box. All from a 4 cylinder and still “one man one engine” production in AMG Affalterbach.
The A45s and CLA45S gets fancy 4Matic+ 4WD axles that can turn it into a pure RWD in a blink of an eye, a feature that has been passed down from bigger badder brother E63S. The rear wheels are powered independently via 2 extra electronically controlled clutches, which allows it to manipulate all 400hp like a smart 4WD should, or to drift on command simply by pulling the shift paddles.
3 quarter 45 – The A35 hatch is a new level of entry into the sacred AMG world, which used to be the C43 previously. As an adolescent A45S, the A35 is 1 dct gear less at 7 speed, makes meaty 300hp / 400nm from tuned 2L 4 cylinder turbo from the A250 and even has 4WD. On the inside, apart from the tech cockpit, there’s plenty of alcantara upholstery to please enthusiasts despite the lack of full AMG furniture.
