Mercedes-Benz, the German auto-giant, has announced that it would unveil the vivacious CLA45 AMG sedan at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, thereby taking forward its ‘Year of Excellence’. It is for sure, a royal treat by the luxurious carmaker to its royal fan base throughout the nation. The company has hinted that this aristocratic saloon would go on sale by the second half of 2014. The company would price it at Rs. 60-65 Lakh, surprisingly, much lesser than its elder sibling, C63 AMG, which costs around Rs. 1 Crore and is the other AMG lineup vehicle available in country, as of now.
German auto-giant hasn't left any stone unturned to make it more appealing than ever before. Although, it is being built on the platform of company's existing hatchbacks- A-Class and B-Class; it can be touted as 'Baby AMG' but that doesn't deprive it of performance. This super saloon touches 100kmph barrier from standstill in a matter of 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 250kmph. This lightening acceleration takes place because of the spirited 2.0-litre direct-injection turbo-petrol mill that also churns out maximum power output of 355bhp at 6,000rpm. These exceptional power figures, thus, make it the most powerful four-cylinder engine. A 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, transfers the power to the engine via Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.
The company has described the CLA45 AMG as a perfect blend of power and design. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz would exclusively showcase the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team car along with launching its first SUV Guard vehicle - the M Guard. The Concept GLA would also be displayed for the Indian auto-freaks.
