Mercedes-Benz reveals GLA 45 AMG Concept

Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG Concept
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled a GLA 45 AMG Concept version of its GLA-Class crossover in Los Angeles.

Utilizing the same platform and drivetrain as the A 45 AMG, the GLA has 265 kW (360 hp) and 450 Nm of torque at its disposal thanks to that all-aluminium AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

That power is transferred to a revised version of the company’s AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive system via a SPEEDSHIFT DCT seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, resulting in a sub-five second 0-100 km/h time and a limited top speed of 250 km/h.

Uprated hardware includes an AMG braking system with cross-drilled 350 x 32 mm front discs and 330 x 22 mm rears, tweaked speed-sensitive sports steering, stiffer steering knuckles and more rigid bearings in the lower link plane for increased cornering properties.

Visually the Concept wears a matte grey twin blade radiator grille, AMG front apron with oversized air intakes and carbon flics, a rear apron with air outlets and diffuser, raised roof spoiler, twin trapezoidal tailpipes and matte 21-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with red flanges.

“With the Concept GLA 45 AMG, we are setting a stake firmly in the ground of the strongly growing market segment of compact SUVs. The most powerful four-cylinder engine in the world and the AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system add up to make the Concept GLA 45 AMG a unique proposition,” said Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
