The new Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC+ appears significantly more distinctive than its predecessor. Its exterior already conveys pure driving pleasure at a standstill. From the front the distinctive front apron and AMG-specific radiator grille plus bonnet with power domes distinguish it unmistakably from the A 35. Other expressive details include the two twin tailpipe trim elements in the sporty, wide rear end. The large track width at the front with broadly flared wings and "TURBO 4MATIC+" lettering also immediately catches the eye.
With the new AMG centre console the A 45 shows its enormous sporty potential even at a standstill. A true eye-catching feature is the AMG-specific instrument cluster with three different display designs including Supersport mode with large rev counter. The leather sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section and red contrasting topstitching and silver shift paddles sits in the hand perfectly, ready for true AMG Driving Performance.
A highlight is the new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with AMG TORQUE CONTROL: it features two separately acting clutches on the rear axle which distribute the power to each of the rear wheels individually in a fully variable, on-demand manner (depending on drive program and driving conditions). This results in unbelievably agile handling, which is particularly noticeable in Drift mode (standard on S-Model and part of the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package).
