Dubbed “not another Christmas video,” Mercedes-AMG has given us a lovely Christmas present in the form of a teaser video of its upcoming A45 hot hatch.
Shot with some imaginative colourful camouflage, the hot hatch can be seen in the video going through its paces. However, other than a large rear wing and new wheels, there isn't much we can see that differs from its milder sibling, the A35.
That said, Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers did say that the car will have an all new 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that will output more than 395bhp. It will also have an eight-speed DCT and will feature a trick all-wheel drive system that will come with a drift mode. Whether it actually dis-engages the front axle like how the E63 S AMG's AWD system does so in drift mode remains unknown.
