New York auto show: 5 redesigned sedans
2014 Mercedes CLA45 AMG
Making its world debut on the show floor at the New York auto show, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG features a coupe-like profile in a four-door package.
Powered by a 355-horsepower 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the CLA45 AMG boasts the most powerful engine built in production of this model series. Each engine is built by hand, by one man whose signature appears on an engine plate on each car.
To further improve the performance, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG has standard variable all-wheel drive that shifts the weight in response to driving dynamics and terrain. Sport suspension, Mercedes' curve dynamic assist system and driver-selectable driving modes further enhance performance.
The standard interior features man-made leather sport seats with red contrasting stitching with brushed aluminum accents, but there are numerous options including carbon fiber or black anodized accents. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG goes on sale in November 2013.
