Mercedes-Benz is continuing its launching spree and now its time for the launch of its much awaited CLA 45 AMG as the car is now on the Mercedes-Benz India site under the AMG section. As you might remember Mercedes-Benz showed the CLA 45 AMG at the Auto Expo along with the Mercedes GLA. The CLA 45 when launched will be the cheapest AMG on sale in India being more affordable than the crore plus price-tags which the current AMG models on sale have.
While it may be the most affordable AMG it's still a powerful car with a 360 hp four-cylinder unit and maximum torque of 450 Newton metres. This turbocharged engine is the most powerful four-cylinder unit in series production anywhere in the world. The gearbox is the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission.
With those gorgeous looks the CLA 45 AMG will be a hit and with its affordable pricing (for a sports saloon) the CLA 45 will open up a new segment for AMGs and increase its grip in the niche performance segment. Expect the pricing to be around Rs 65-75 lakh. Now thats tempting!
