Mercedes-Benz Concept GLA45 AMGNovember 27th, 2013
With the paint not even dry on the 2015 Mercedes GLA, Mercedes-Benz has already unleashed the fury of its AMG group on its new crossover to see what it could do with it. As is usually the case with AMG, we’re impressed with their ability to turn an everyday ride into something truly special.
In addition to its sporty exterior, the GLA45 has been bestowed with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that’s been pushed to an impressive 355hp and 33 lb-ft. of torque. It’s also had its stock 7-speed transmission upgraded to AMG’s Speedshift model, along with massive black and red accented 21-inch wheels and AMG high performance brakes.
