The CLA45 AMG is, simply, a brilliant mix of luxury, style, and performance for its price. The A45 AMG is the hatchback version of the same that's Forbidden Fruit on this side of the pond.
Together, they're a dynamic duo that has to be experienced to be believed, but since the CLA45 AMG isn't on sale in the U.S. yet, you'll have to settle for enjoyment by proxy. Along the way to the Bilster Berg experience, this video gives some insight into the design and performance of these compact AMG offerings.
If you've already forgotten (shame!) the CLA45 AMG sports a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder tuned up to 355 horsepower, enabling 4.5-second 0-60-mph runs, ripped off through all-wheel drive and a brilliant and effective dual-clutch seven-speed transmission.
