Mercedes-Benz has launched the new generation of the A-Class, aiming at sporty performance and enhanced comfort: With DYNAMIC SELECT the driver is able to change the car’s characteristics.
The Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC offers drivers to experience a particularly comfortable, sporty or efficient manner. It also benefits from the model facelift. With peak output of 381 hp and a maximum torque of 475 Nm, the entry-level model from Mercedes-AMG is the world’s most powerful compact sports model. The revised gear ratios, aerodynamic fine-tuning and the new DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes raise overall performance to a higher level, underlining the claim to leadership in this market segment.
Drive system: engine range extended further
In combination with the 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission, the A-Class now has “Launch Assist” for even faster acceleration from standstill. The “ECO display” also takes a new form to assist the driver in maintaining an environmentally friendly style of driving.
The Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC also benefits from the model facelift. With peak output of 381 hp and a maximum torque of 475 Nm, the entry-level model from Mercedes-AMG is the world’s most powerful compact sports model. This powerpack delivers a dynamic performance that is unrivalled: 100 km/h is already reached from standstill in 4.2 seconds. This means that the new Mercedes-AMG A 45 accelerates 0.4 seconds faster than its predecessor.
Suspension: Comfort at the touch of a button
With DYNAMIC SELECT the vehicle characteristics can be adjusted in seconds at the touch of a button, as the system modifies the engine, transmission, suspension, steering and air conditioning at the driver’s behest. The four driving modes “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Eco” and “Individual” can be conveniently selected using the switch in the upper control array.
The Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC is equipped with the DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport +” and “Individual”, which are familiar from the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car and the top-of-the-line C-Class model, the Mercedes AMG C 63, as standard. As a new optional feature, the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package includes a mechanical front axle locking differential, the AMG RIDE CONTROL sport suspension with adaptive damping and the fifth DYNAMIC SELECT driving mode “Race”.
Assistance systems: Improved support, LED headlamp on request
The drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST (standard) has been upgraded: operating within an extended speed range (60 – 200 km/h), it now uses a five-stage bar display to visualise the driver’s current attention level. Apart from their distinctive look, the new LED High Performance headlamps (optional for A 180) offer added safety at night thanks to their wide beam pattern and light of a colour similar to daylight.
