Following the Mercedes A-class hatchback , the S-platform models CLA and GLA will undergo similar upgrades. It will happen by the end of the year, but their extreme AMG-versions are updated now. In appearance and interior there are no changes, but all the equipment is now the same as the all-wheel drive hatchback Mercedes-AMG A 45.
The two-liter turbo engine is boosted from 360 to 381 hp, the maximum torque is increased from 450 to 475 Nm. The preselective “robot” AMG Speedshift DCT has been changed gear ratios of all stages, except the first and second. As a result, the passport time for acceleration to 100 km / h in all models was reduced by 0.4 s: the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 saloon performs this exercise in 4.2 seconds (like the hatchback), the Shooting Brake wagon – for 4.3 seconds, but a crossoverMercedes-AMG GLA 45 (on the title page) – for 4.4 seconds (0.4 seconds faster than the 340-horsepower Audi RS Q3). The maximum speed for all is still limited at 250 km / h.
Already in the “base” there was a system Dynamic Select, which changes the modes of operation of the engine, gearbox, power steering and climate control. There are four presets: Comfort, Individual, Sport and Sport +. And when ordering the adaptive suspension, instead of the Individual mode, a “tightened” Race mode appears. In addition, for a surcharge now offered a self-locking differential on the front axle.
European dealers have updated AMG-models in September, although the acceptance of orders is already open.All three cars will reach the end of the year, prices for the current 360-strong versions start from 50 000 $ thousand dollars.
