A look forward to the new SUV from Mercedes-AMGNovember 20, 2013 - Affalterbach/Los Angeles
Mercedes-AMG will present its outlook on a compact, high-performance SÚV at the 2013 Los Angeles International Auto Show. The Concept GLA45 AMG features an excitingly bold, distinctive design and is powered by the most muscular four-cylinder engine in series production anywhere in the world: its AMG 2.0-liter turbocharged engine wîth an output of 355 hp (265 kW) and maximum torque of 332 lb-ft of torque offers unrivalled performance in conjunction wîth low fuel consumption.
Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: 'With the Concept GLA45 AMG, we are setting a stake firmly in the ground of the strongly growing market §egmènt of compact SÚVs. Our customers – a young target group who set great store by styling, dynamism and independence – can now start lòòking forward to a dynamic high-performance car. The most powerful four-cylinder engine in the world and the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system add up to make the Concept GLA45 AMG a unique proposition.'
Acceleration from 0-60 mph in less than five seconds demonstrates the performance dynamic that is a hallmark of the brand. Thanks to a combination of the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission, the Concept GLA45 AMG impresses wîth its sporty yet also efficient performance.Powerful and muscular: breathtaking design
Stunning engineering is combined wîth breathtaking styling features by Mercedes-AMG: the Concept GLA45 AMG has a powerful and muscular presence on the road. This is due in considerable part to the AMG forged wheels in a cross-spoke design wîth 255/35 R 21 tires which are painted matte black wîth a red rim flange, to command attention. They are complemented by the AMG wheel hub covers wîth center lock-look, plus an AMG highperformance braking system wîth red brake calipers.
The AMG front apron wîth its large front splitter in high-gloss black, the black flics (air deflectors) together wîth the large cooling air intakes, serve to underline the long tradition of motorsport at Mercedes-AMG. The motor racing look is further reinforced by the start number '45' on the doors and the distinctive AMG logo at the upper edge of the windscreen. Further design elements exclusive to AMG include the 'twin-blade' radiator grille in silver chrome, side sill panels wîth high-gloss black inserts, a 'TÚRBO AMG' badge on the front wings, high-gloss black roof rails and the large rear spoiler.Sporty wraps and red highlights
The sporty silver grey/red foil wrap on the hood, vehicle sides, C-pillar and rear end makes a memorable impression and is complemented by the red highlights on the radiator grille, exterior mirrors, diffuser insert and AMG rear spoiler. The rear view is dominated by the diffuser insert wîth black trim element and by the two rectangular, high-gloss black tailpipe trims of the AMG sports exhaust system which features and an electronically controlled variable vane system to modulate the AMG signature exhaust note.Source - Mercedes-Benz
