For many years we are getting high performance crossovers from European car makers. One of those that will be delivered soon is the 2015 Mercedes GLA45 AMG and as soon as it mentions AMG we are sure that it will offer great performances and powerful engine.
Few years ago we would be getting large displacement engine that was naturally aspirated but now the replacement comes and we have powerful turbocharged 2.0 liter inline four cylinder unit. This engine pumps out incredible 355 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque that is enough to launch all wheel drive AMG model from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds.
Review Of 2015 GLA45 AMG
Looking on the market of sporty models it is quite obvious that this is the engine that puts most hp per liter in its category. It is quite incredible how precise everything needs to be so that it would work flawlessly but Mercedes managed to achieve this. We are sure that the popularity of this vehicle will encourage Mercedes to further experiment with powerful powertrains like this in GLA. Only few years ago if we would say that one AMG model will be powered with four cylinder 2.0 liter engine many would laugh but technology improvements that we are able to see every day allow things like this.
Power is transferred through a seven speed dual clutch transmission that can be set to Manual, Sport and Comfort mode depending on the situation. Power is transferred to front wheels when there is no need for strong acceleration but when you want to take off much harder up to 50 percent of power will be transferred to the rear axle. This also happens in situation when there is not enough grip.
With changes and additions to the both interior and exterior every driver will immediately notice and know that this vehicle comes with AMG upgrades. Additions like carbon fiber, Night package and improved aerodynamic parts will allow you to further improve what factory has to offer. Standard wheels include 19 inch twin five spokes or two 20 inch models that come with ten spoke alloys.
With this much power there is a great need for the 2015 Mercedes GLA45 AMG to come with decent amount of features that will help out in controlling everything on this vehicle. The ESP comes with Curve Dynamic Assist function that will allow computer to clamp inside rear wheel and significantly reduce understeer. AMG exhaust comes with a vane that will open when you accelerate and even further improve the sound of the system. Also those that want more can opt for sport exhaust and sport suspension.
Price has not yet been announced but just like all other AMG models it will be pretty high. For those that decide to order early models will be getting Edition 1 version that comes with standard equipment that includes red racing stripes, Aero package, Night package and wheel hub covers that mimic central lock.
