The CLA 45 is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine capable of producing 355 bhp and 450 Nm of torque, also making this motor the world’s most powerful series production four-cylinder engine. 0-100 km/h in the CLA 45 comes up in 4.6 seconds and the top-speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

Power is sent to all wheels using Merc’s 4MATIC system and a 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission. The CLA 45 also comes with an AMG sports steering wheel and gearlever, carbon-trimmed interior, three-stage ESP with Curve Dynamic Assist and aerodynamic bumpers with carbon-fiber trims.

The CLA 45 AMG doesn’t have competition as such in India, as Audi doesn’t sell the S3 (an indirect rival) in India as yet. BMW do not have a sedan on the current 1 Series family.

With the launch of the CLA 45 AMG, Mercedes India’s AMG lineup includes the E 63 AMG and CLA 45 AMG saloons, the SLK 55 AMG roadster, and the G 63 AMG, GL 63 AMG and ML 63 AMG SUVs.
