The rear end of the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC Coupé has visibly undergone further development according to the “more thrust, less lift” principle. The new AMG spoiler lip plays a crucial role in improving aerodynamics. The AMG diffusor-look rear apron with four vertical fins additionally optimises the flow of air. The two chromed twin tailpipe finishers of the AMG sports exhaust system and the “TURBO 4MATIC” lettering on the sides add the finishing touches to the vehicle’s overall progressive character. Pure dynamism – the essence of the new Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC Coupé.
Optimum user-friendliness is crucial to perfect handling. The AMG DRIVE UNIT fits the part here as the control centre for the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, which are simple to operate by means of rotary switches. The AMG high-performance brake system enables excellent deceleration, applying just the required braking power. The AMG Aerodynamics package with larger front splitters and additional flics on the front apron increases negative lift. For easy freewheeling with the AMG light-alloy wheels.
What’s the shape of driving dynamics to come? The AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package on the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC Coupé. This includes the mechanically controlled AMG front-axle differential lock. For optimum traction in all driving situations. Other features of the package are the AMG Performance steering wheel, the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with Adaptive Damping System and the RACE transmission mode. The latter lives up to its name: RACE is tuned for maximum driving dynamics and is ideal when you’re going all out for best times. On the race track, rather than around the corner on an errand.
The development of the 3-stage Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) reconciled the previously contradictory aims of driving enjoyment and safety. Using the ESP® button, the driver can choose one of three different control strategies: “ESP® ON” for a high level of safety, “ESP® SPORT HANDLING MODE” for a sporty driving style and “ESP® OFF” for driving on closed racing circuits. The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension additionally helps in transferring the engine power more effectively to the asphalt. What ever lies ahead, you can rely on your vehicle’s performance.
