The all new 2013 Mercedes A45 AMG stole the show when it made its official world debut by sharing the stage with international pop superstar Usher and Mercedes-Benz Head, Dieter Zetsche at the Geneva Motor Show. For the show, Mercedes chose to show off the Edition 1 A45 AMG, available for only 12 months and with several cosmetic upgrades both on the interior and exterior.

The A 45 AMG is setting new standards in the high-performance compact class by combining a peak output of  360 hp (265 kW) and maximum torque of 450 Nm with low fuel consumption: roughly 34.5 miles per gallon (6.9 litres of petrol per 100 kilometers).

Mercedes’ compact premium sports car has a two-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine boasts a specific output of 133 kW (181 hp) per litre of displacement – a new record – meaning that the A 45 AMG surpasses even the most powerful super sports cars. Its standard-fit performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive ensures driving dynamics at the highest level and, thanks to excellent traction, enables the car to complete the burst from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG is embarking on a new era with the A 45 AMG. The attractive entry-level model, available from €49,682.50 (incl. VAT) in Germany, will capture a new target group and new markets for the Affalterbach-based performance brand.
