More photos of the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG

By Faiming_low on 24 Mar 2014

Attached Image I have always wondered if a Mitsubishi Evolution owner wants to upgrade to another All-Wheel Drive (AWD) sedan which uses forced induction, what would he get? Unless I am mistaken, there are not many options other than the current Audi S4/S6 sedans. Fortunately, AMG has provided another option with its CLA 45 AMG.
 
Attached Image With one of the highest specific outputs of any road car, the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine in the CLA 45 has helped it to be one of the most effective point-and-shoot weapons on the road in any weather.
 
Attached Image The engine, which is the highlight of the car for me, has minimal lag and pulls strongly all the way to the red line unlike most turbocharged cars.
 
Attached Image It sounds pretty good at the top of the range too, although it will not be mistaken as one of AMG's V8s. Reach for the next gear and it rewards you with a loud "barrrrpppp". And I mean 'Loud'. It might be too much for some but I personally love it!

Attached Image On the handling front, it rides softer as compared to its sister, the A 45 AMG hatchback. Unless you drive them back to back, chances are you wouldn't notice the difference.
 
Attached Image Its variable-ratio steering feels sharp and weighting is fine. Road feel could be improved though.

Attached Image No complaints on the brakes. They are pretty much as good as they can get.
 
Attached Image Seats hug you snug and also look great.

Attached Image Red belts remind you this is something special.
 
Attached Image AMG illuminated side step is one of the many features that adds to the overall feel-good factor of the car.

Attached Image While it might be slightly pricey, its looks and talent more than makes up for it. Evo owners, look no further.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Am I the only one who prefers this to the A 45 AMG - aesthetics wise?
