Mercedes-AMG A45 W176 (facelift)

Description

The Mercedes-AMG A45 W176 is the performance derivative of the third generation A-Class launched in 2013 and received a facelift in 2015.

The facelifted version came with an updated AMG 2.0 liter engine producing 380 hp (280 kw) and 475 Nm of torque. The engine specialists at AMG mainly achieved this increase in power output with a newly configured valve assembly. In addition the combustion processes have been optimised by reconfigured timing and turbocharging. The maximum charge pressure continues to be 1.8 bar. Thanks to those upgrades, the updated model completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.2 seconds (0.4 seconds faster than its predecessor) while the top speed is still electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).

The car also featured revised transmission ratios, aerodynamic fine-tuning, AMG Ride Control sports suspension and new Dynamic Select driving modes.

 

 

 

 

 

Visually the facelift included new LED headlight graphics, restyled bumper, larger AMG-specific cooling air inlets, horizontal fins and two side flics in high-gloss black. At the back, four vertical fins and a striking spoiler lip in the diffuser were added, as well as new tailight graphics. Inside, the flat bottomed multifunction sport steering wheel, the updated sport seats and the leather upholstery in sahara beige / black are new to the model.
