The Mercedes A Class has provided the three pointed star a much needed shot in the arm. The stylish premium hatchback is keeping the assembly line extremely busy as it turned out to be the most successful launch in MB’s illustrious history, clocking close to 1 lakh bookings.

The A45 AMG is the icing on the cake or a cherry on top of the ice cream. The latest bad boy from Affalterbach employs a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine that delivers a phenomenal 360 bhp and 450 Nm of torque. Mercedes claims that the 2.0 litre AMG engine is the most powerful 4 cylinder series production engine in the world!

The power is laid on the tarmac through a 4MATIC all wheel drive system specifically developed for the cars using the MFA platform. The A45 AMG reaches a ton from rest in a scant 4.6 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph.
