|When AMG gets its hands on a new Mercedes, wheels start turning and Mercedes performance becomes something astounding. The A45 AMG is no exception. Yes, it is a four cylinder; sure, it is a compact hot hatch. But with the AMG upgrades, it is nothing less than one of the best-performing hot hatches in the world. AMG starts with a sound, performance-driven luxury five door compact, the A45, which is an already nimble package. When you add the AMG AWD, it becomes a profound track performer. Setting records at the track is up to you, but the A45 AMG has set its own records already, in a category that is particularly attractive when it comes to racing: power. Loads of horsepower are pumped out of the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine via a high-pressure turbocharger that receives a race-car-like 26psi of boost. The result is more horsepower per litre than a Porsche GT2 RS, a record for road-going cars. So, take it to the grocery store or take on all comers when the green light hits; the A45 AMG will not disappoint.|
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG - abbreviated as A45 '13 - is an AWD hot hatch by Mercedes-Benz that debuted in Forza Motorsport 5 as part of the IGN Car Pack and is featured as standard in all subsequent main series titles.
Powered by one of the world's strongest four-cylinder engines in production, the A 45 AMG was designed to compete against the fastest hot hatches on the market. It was offered as an entry-level model of AMG-tuned performance cars alongside its coupe and crossover counterparts, the CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG respectively.
It draws power from a two litre inline-four engine boosted by a twin-scroll turbocharger, which puts down 355 hp (265 kW) and 332 ft·lb (450 N·m) of torque. It sends its power to all wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and weighs only 3263 lb (1480 kg).
It received a facelift for the 2016 model year that changed its name to Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC.
