NEW YORK — Mercedes-Benz last month confirmed that its high-performance 2014 CLA45 AMG would make its official debut next week at the 2013 New York Auto Show. Now a full gallery of CLA AMG photos has been leaked on the Web.
The A45's 2.0-liter turbo is rated at 355 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission.
Mercedes says the hatchback AMG will sprint from zero to 62 mph in 4.6-seconds, with top speed limited to 155 mph.
Pricing has not been announced for the CLA45 AMG, but the entry-level CLA is set to start at $30,825, including a $925 destination charge.
Edmunds says: Not all AMGs need a V8.
