New Mercedes-AMG A45 to Get More Than 400hp!

We’re still quite excited by the coming of Mercedes’ entry level A Class in both sedan and hatchback forms and the confirmation that the A35 will come to Canada that we’re almost ok with the possibility that the bonkers A45 won’t come to our shores.

The A35 will run with an all-new twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that will be good for 306-horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. This should be more than enough to fight off the Audi S3, BMW M240i and Volkswagen Golf R.

But what about the pesky Audi RS 3, the BMW M2 and anything else that dares to play in this league? Rumour has it that the revised hand-built turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine from the 35 will produce in excess of 400-horsepower for the 45.

With AWD and an expected new 9-speed automatic transmission, the Mercedes-AMG A45 will likely hit 100 km/h in under 4 seconds. The chassis is expected to receive a number of upgrades to cope with the extra power – this car will score a 20,000,000+ on the Scoville Hot Hatch heat scale!
