Mercedes-Benz has just revealed the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Saloon and it shows that the high-performance premium car maker will not rest on its laurels. The future Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC is undergoing final testing procedures before its official debut.
The head of AMG, Tobias Moers, has already hinted that the future A 45 will get the newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the new configurable all-wheel drive 4MATIC system. A Drift mode will also be there for maximum plasure behind the steering wheel.
A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine will put 388 PS onto the asphalt, 421 PS for the S model. Whether the Audi RS3 and the BMW M2 will be caught off guard remains to be seen whent the new hot hatch hits the showrooms next year.
