The 2014 CLA45 AMG four-door coupe made its debut at this year's New York International Auto Show. The new Mercedes follows in the design footsteps of the successful CLS63 AMG, the trendsetter for four-door high-performance coupes. With 355 horsepower and torque of 332 lb-ft, the 2014 CLA45 AMG has the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine. The AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive system on the CLA45 AMG sets new standards in its segment as well.

Ola Källenius, outgoing CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "In the CLA45 AMG, Mercedes-AMG presents a unique and absolutely desirable automobile with the characteristic AMG genes. The high-tech package with the world's most powerful four-cylinder production engine and performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive stands for 'Driving Performance' at its best."

CLA45's Unmistakable Exterior

Even at first glance, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG leaves no doubt about its character; similarities with the CLS63 AMG are intentional. Mercedes-AMG complements the expressive design idiom with distinctive AMG elements, creating a new design standard. The CLA was developed with sporty proportions - the AMG "twin blade" radiator grille and the cross member in the AMG front fascia, both painted matte titanium gray, further reinforce its sporty appearance. Large air inlet ports on the sides are framed by black winglets that improve air flow to the cooling system behind them. Bi-xenon headlights are part of the standard equipment.

From the side of the CLA45 AMG, sill panels with matte titanium gray inserts catch the eye. Other elements of a top-of-the-line AMG model are the twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, inlayed in titanium gray with a high-sheen finish, as well as a "TURBO AMG" badge on the fender. The AMG rear fascia includes stylized side air vents as well as a large diffuser insert and matte titanium gray trim. The conjoined quad-tip chrome tailpipes of the AMG exhaust system emphasize its sporty purpose. Striking LED tail lights come as standard equipment.

CLA45 AMG: Dynamic Interior

Obvious quality, high-end materials and a sporty, exclusive character typical of Mercedes-AMG make the interior of the CLA45 AMG impressive. Standard equipment includes AMG door sill panels, sport seats wrapped in MB-Tex man-made leather and DINAMICA microfibers with red contrasting stitching, red seat belts, a multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles and an AMG DRIVE UNIT bearing the AMG Affalterbach Crest. The AMG instrument cluster provides key information with a central color display, the AMG main menu and the RACETIMER, while brushed aluminum trim on the instrument panel is matched to the five anodized ventilation nozzles.
